Crypto wallets were confiscated and stored in Cold storage vaults. Punishments and persecution were meted out for the holders. Knowing his life would become a peasant-like existence on Earth, Moonstorm knew he needed to act. He formed the NOVAs (New Order Volunteer Alliance), a misfit group of rebel starship fighters, made up of the ex-military, mercenaries, scientists, privateers and opportunists of all shapes and sizes with one mission - Take back the crypto of the world and pave the way for the creation of a new civilisation, free from the tyranny that had enslaved the earth. The NOVAs were loyal to Moonstorm at all costs; most had served with him in the AI wars. The NOVAs elected to leave earth and start fresh, carve a new path for the population of the earth to follow and create a new life for the next generations. To do this, the NOVAs would need a fleet of ships and enough storage to hold all the world's crypto assets, to do that they would need the help of the CFC.
