  • Libra might be banned. What about Bitcoin? Facebook was recently sent a letter from government reps telling them to stop development on their cryptocurrency "Libra". Obviously a similar letter couldn't be sent to Bitcoin, but if the government did decide to ban it, how easy would it be to shut down?
