But with the passage of time and the process of democratization, there is more agreement that this could happen. Something that worries the States for what happened. In recent years, they have stepped up their efforts to ban or regulate the use of crypto.
Bitcoin, a threat to the state
In a publication made on Mediumthe crypto influence Nic Carter, showed how bitcoin (BTC) attacks one on the interests of the state, including the monetary system controlled by central banks.
