Thanks Davido. No one can control Bitcoin, that’s the whole point of it. If they could, they would have done by now. Not even China can. They can limit it within its borders but then the miners and the nodes just move to a different location.

All the actions that you talk about in your article have been tried already with very limited and temporary success. Meanwhile BTC keeps growing. Banks, Hedge funds, corporations, politicians and wealthy individuals already own a fair amount of Bitcoin. It’s not in their interest to sink the boat, even if they could.

Countries that try to ban crypto are among the biggest in BTC adoption. Venezuela, India, and China are in the top ten despite being illegal there. Banning Bitcoin is actually free marketing, let them do it more.

The only way to stop Bitcoin would be by getting all countries to agree 100% and act together against the common enemy. How likely is that? 0% chance.
