Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, humanity was splintered. People were divided into into rival gangs rival gangs, killing each other over blocks that they didn’t even own.
Then THEY came: the 0pps. Nobody knows where they Nobody knows where they come from. It is just known that they come in waves. And that each wave comes with hella hash power. At first, each gang tried to fight the 0pps on their own. But that quickly became futile But that quickly became futile. The 0pps were just too powerful. The gangs were forced to put aside their differences and come together to fight their common enemy. Humanity and all human history was hanging in the balance. Because the 0pps had Zero Block the 0pps had Zero Block in their sights.
Zero Block is where it all started. It’s often called the the Genesis Block Genesis Block.
From the perspective of blockchain technology, 0x00 Block or Zero Block or the Genesis block is the first block in the chain of blocks referred to as a blockchain. It is the foundation. Therefore, it is the most important block.
From the perspective of the streets perspective of the streets, Zero Block is a neighborhood where gangs operate. Once unified, it is considered the home turf of all the gangs home turf of all the gangs. Originally, however, it was the home turf of the Block DAOs (BDs).
In the early days of blockchain technology blockchain technology, anybody could run a node on any personal computer. But as the technology became more popular, and lucrative, certain people started gaming the system. They built single-purpose ASIC machines single-purpose ASIC machines that could mine blocks faster than regular computers. Things got hard. Regular people started forming and joining mining pools. There was safety in numbers. The people in the pools would combine their hashing power to mine blocks and split the proceeds amongst the group.
This went on for quite some time. And things stayed relatively cool. But then the HALVINGS started taking a toll. Every so many years, the amount of crypto awarded for Every so many years, the amount of crypto awarded for mining blocks was cut in half. There was less profit to go around and things started getting more competitive. As if that wasn’t bad enough, EIP-1559 was introduced. This protocol started burning the crypto that used to be awarded to miners for validating blocks. These deflationary influences deflationary influences caused coins to be more scarce. And people, being human, resorted to violence in their bid to obtain coins. The mining pools devolved into violent gangs going to war over blocks. And certain Homies in the gangs earned KLOUT for their particularly violent behavior.
This was the beginning of the block wars. And it resulted in a lot of Dead Homies.
The 0pps are the opposition. They are a foreign enemy, come to destroy foreign enemy, come to destroy all humanity and erase the fact that humans ever existed by completely overwriting the blockchain. Zero Block, also known as the Genesis Block, is the very first block in the blockchain. Whoever controls Zero Block controls controls Zero Block controls everything.
The 0pps have their sights set on Zero Block. If they capture Zero Block, not only can they destroy all of humanity, they can erase all human history.
But the only way that the 0pps can capture Zero Block is to accumulate 51% or more of all available HASH POWER all available HASH POWER in order for them to launch a 51% attack on the blockchain. And it’s up to all the Homies to prevent this from happening.
The Gwei DAOs believe that the hackers who exploited the bug in the DAO source code are a Lick Squad who saw them as a stain. And they believe that the people who got should get their money back. And they believe that the people who got should get their money back. So they forked the DAO code and rolled back all of the hackers’ transactions. And from that point forward, they were known as the Gwei DAO.
In the beginning, there was a single DAO: The Block DAO. But after the infamous “DAO Hack”, when hackers hit a stain and made off with mad bands, the DAO forked (or split in two). The Block DAOs are strict believers in the street code strict believers in the street code, “code is law”. And as such, they viewed the hack as just part of the game. Win some. Lose some. If the source code allows it, it is what it is.
The Vyper Logs, one of the oldest gangs on the block, are a group that is unified around their love for the smart contracts love for the smart contracts programming language, Vyper. They believe that Vyper is that gas due to the way it does event it does event logging and it’s similarity to the Python programming language.
The Ledger Keys are one of the oldest gangs on the block. At the core of every blockchain is a distributed ledger and cryptographic distributed ledger and cryptographic keys. The Ledger Keys gang was founded on these core principles: stick to the basics and live as Kings.
During the period of “Gang Wars”, a lot of good Homies were killed. These Dead Homies are revered and celebrated. It is an honor for any of the Homies to be It is an honor for any of the Homies to be in possession of and care for the remains of any Dead Homies.
Even though the gangs are now unified against the 0pps, each gang prefers that Dead Homies from their gang be gang be looked after by members of their own gang.
The Undead Homies are re-animated Dead Homies. They aren’t completely brought back to life. They are in more of a zombie state. Undead Homies are valuable because they have 10x the hash power they had when they were alive. Thus, Undead Homies are crucial in Undead Homies are crucial in the effort to defeat the 0pps. Undead Homies can kill more 0pps than your typical Homie. And they can help the Homies maintain their overall HASH POWER advantage to prevent the 0pps from launching a 51% attack.
Not all of the Homies are down with this unity play. Some go renegade and claim GDK or BDK. When they go against the Homies and catch them lackin, not only do they make more DEAD HOMIES, but they decrease the unified decrease the unified gang’s cumulative hash power. So in this way, it’s like they are working with the 0pps. Because the less hash power the Homies have the easier it is for the 0pps to launch a 51% attack on Zero Block.
The Shorties are the younger members of the crew. They are more ttechnically savvy technically savvy than the older gang members. So they are more useful when it comes to hacking the system and hacking the 0pps. Hacking is finessing.
