Wait your argument is actually that the federal government is going to copy and run the btc software as fedcoin? Is that serious? Complete with miners and the distribution protocol? And us citizens will then buy fedcoin? That's one of the dumber things you've posted in here, to say nothing of the fact that the fed govt is not going to set a hard capped currency. I bought my btc on an exchange. Not sure what that has to do with anything. Nearly 18.5m btc already exist. If the fed wanted to buy up all the bitcoin, there's not a whole lot left for it to get. Your thought exercise is also impossible since future btc is distributed through mining rewards. That is not something the fed can simply "buy up," but don't let that get in the way of whatever point you're trying to make. And lol at overthrowing the planet and lambos. Nice strawman for something I've never mentioned or advocated for. If any government actor is in the position of trying to shut down internet service in an attempt to stop btc, it will already be too late.
