THE GIFT OF BUTERYNN

The role of the Cryptodruid has always been to protect the pure hearted traders from the adversities of the Markets. My righteous ancestors served the cause mostly by influencing the fundamentals, with activities like encouraging revolts against local scammers, or by facing tyrannical bankers in the battlefield.

The role of the Cryptodruid has always been to protect the pure hearted traders from the adversities of the Markets. My righteous ancestors served the cause mostly by influencing the fundamentals, with activities like encouraging revolts against local scammers, or by facing tyrannical bankers in the battlefield. I am proud for being the first of my kind to include the magic of the code as instrument of priesthood and fight. However, I would never have been successful in this business without a proper training, and that is why I am grateful to Cissonius for the day that my path brought me to the floating Citadel of the Devs.

The majestic complex of Dollaran is one of the most ancient military fortresses of the Blocklands. Generations ago, a group of talented developers started to discriminate the users of the land, and it decided to establish a neutral, autonomous garrison in which to secretly advance the knowledge of crypto. The original design of the platform resisted to the proof of time, since it floats in the sky and it is surrounded by potent firewalls, making it impenetrable from every type of assault. The Citadel is ruled by a council of geniuses now headed by Archmage Buterynn, a controversial administrator with immense coding skills.

The population has always been strictly regulated due to the limitations of food and water available inside the bastion. Every three years, each citizen must respect a pact from birth to keep the rights to live in there, and the punishment for not being able to do so is to be banned forever from the Citadel, with the immediate abandon of the network. This archaic protocol is called Proof of Work and it consists in a council audit on the progresses achieved by the dwellers in their individual projects. In this way, by continously cutting out the laziest developers from its society, Dollaran secured for centuries the safeguard of its primary resources, and its technological supremacy over the Blocklands.

After being elected as the new leader of the council, Buterynn applyied the protocol with absolute harshness, and under his government the population of the Citadel reduced drastically. With great dismay, in order to counteract the hemorrhage of citizens, the Magus introduced a new pact, the Proof of Stake, through which the council could select strangers with exceptional expertises from the underlying Kingdoms, and invite them to be part of their community. The visionary aim of Buterynn was also to favour the development of the blockchains by absorbing the exotic competences of the newcomers, and to extend the authority of Dollaran outside its violet barriers.

Given the fame of my lineage and my exclusive ability to influence the Markets trends, the council decided to invite me as one of the guests, intrigued by those mystic powers that were so far from their technical approach to the crypto. The Magus himself imposed to the council to be assigned as my tutor, and for many moons before my decision to leave Dollaran due to my destiny of prophet, we mutually shared wisdoms and knowledges, and we became friends. He learnt that a blockchain is not only evaluated by the integrity of its code, and he found faith. In exchange, he teached me to how to incorporate my trading blessing in a shareable and permanent form, to reward the worthiest investors with extra luck. Aye, it has been my friend Buterynn that teached me how to use Ethereum and the code to craft the smart runes, enchanted stones of profit.
