Why do I believe it was BCN destiny to be born in 2012?

Why do I believe it was BCN destiny to be born in 2012? Just look at this and see yourself:
1983 - Blind signatures were invented by David Chaum link 1997 - HashCash (proof of work system) was invented by Adam Back link
2001 - Ring signatures were invented by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Yael Tauman link
2003 - Mart n Abadi, Michael Burrows, and Ted Wobber presented "Moderately hard, memory-bound functions"link
2004 - Patrick P. Tsang and Victor K. Wei presented their paper "Short linkable ring signatures for e-voting, e-cash and attestation" link
2005 - Matthew Franklin and Haibin Zhang with "Unique Group Signatures" study link
2005 - Exponential memory-bound functions for proof of work protocols by Fabien Coelho link +2006 - "Traceable Ring Signature" by Fujisaki and Suzuki link
2008 - Bitcoin whitepaper by Satoshi Nakamoto link
2009 - Stronger key derivation via sequential memory-hard functions by Colin Percival link
2009 - First Bitcoin block was generated
2010 -2012 - Bitcoin Anonymity Problem Discussions link
2011 - An Analysis of Anonymity in the Bitcoin System, Fergal Reid and Martin Harrigwere link
5/15/2012 - Dorit Ron and Adi Shamir made Quantitative Analysis of the Full Bitcoin Transaction Graph link
6/8/2012 - Bytecoin Wiki started link
6/30/2012 - Bytecoin launch announcement link- first news
7/4/2012 - First BCN block was generated link
8/6/2012 - Destination Address Anonymization in Bitcoin (one-time addresses in BCN) link
10/19/2012 - Evaluating User Privacy in Bitcoin by Elli Androulaki, Ghassan O. Karame, Marc Roeschlin, Tobias Scherer, Srdjan Capkun. link
12/12/2012 -CryptoNote whitepaper v 1.0 link
12/13/2012 - Analysis of hashrate-based double-spending, Meni Rosenfeld link
10/17/2013 - CryptoNote whitepaper v 2.0 link
Here we see how the technology logically came to the advent of cryptocurrencies with ring signature and memory-bound function PoW implementation. Soon after Bitcoin's release the community started to raise concerns about its anonymity with multiple solutions and propositions. High concentration of theoretical papers on these topics in 2009-2011 most probably spurred the brightest minds to make attempts of practical e-cash with ring signatures realization. Therefore, BCN couldn't but appear in 2012.

As Fergal Reid and Martin Harrigan note in their analysis of anonymity in the implementation of Bitcoin, [w]ith appropriate tools, the activity of known users can be observed in detail. This can be performed using a passive analysis only. Active analyses, where an interested party can potentially deploy "marked" Bitcoins and collaborate with other users can discover even more information. We ...

In 2011, researchers Fergal Reid and Martin Harrigan released an analysis that, among other things, attempted to trace a 25,000 BTC theft from June 2011. The paper produced no results useful to law enforcement, but was able to follow the money a considerable distance in some places. More recently, researchers in Zurich expanded on Bitcoin de-anonymization techniques, and most recently in ...
