Amidst continuing protests across the U.S., some of them violent over police brutality, a publication has revealed information about a Pentagon war game created in 2018 that bears a striking resemblance to current events.
According to a June 6 article in The Intercept, the documents reveal that the U.S. Pentagon created a game called the Joint Land, Air and Sea Special Strategic Program 2018 (JLASS). In the scenario, members of Generation Z (people born in the mid-1990s) are rewarded in Bitcoin (BTC) for their efforts in starting a rebellion, i.e. „Zbellion“.

The fictional U.S. players in the 2020s are receiving the proceeds of their attacks on the corporations, financial institutions, and political and non-profit organizations that support „establishment“ in the crypto-currencies.
According to the document, „Zbellion uses software programs to direct any product to laundering programs that eventually convert national currencies to Bitcoin Evolution“ and makes „small donations below the threshold“ to „worthy recipients,“ including members who carry out the attacks or have a financial need.

Echo of the reality of 2020
Although supposedly created in 2018, prior to the coronavirus pandemic and the growing authoritarianism of Trump and his supporters in Congress, the history of the game resembles the current forces driving some towards cryptomonies in the United States.
JLASS cites governments that provide „erroneous or misleading information on official websites with the intention of confusing citizens and creating distrust“ while citizens lose faith in traditional information networks. The scenario accurately describes Trump’s attempts to use social media to obfuscate the truth.

Meanwhile, the Zbellion begins with rallies and protests to „expose injustice and corruption. People from all over the country are gathering in major cities to demand justice for the police murder of African-American George Floyd.
Protesting with Bitcoin
In the current decade of 2020, it is not only the younger generation that is moving towards cryptology in response to „a sense of unease and insecurity“.
Cointelegraph has reported on how Bitcoin can be a tool for protestors of all ages against financial institutions. A YouTuber that talks about cryptomonies even moved to Saipan to escape the „totalitarian tyranny“ it predicted was about to occur in America.
