Other cryptos are not a hedge against hegemony. There is only one tool for that – Bitcoin. In a world gone dark, thank goodness there is something that shines a little bright with hope.
With regulation looming, altcoins are in for a rude awakening. They will most certainly increase regulation on Bitcoin exchanges over time, but Bitcoin itself will keep evolving and circumventing. This is what it does best. Decentralisation is everything. It is the entire point of crypto. But most people fail to realise what this actually means. It is what makes Bitcoin indestructible and thus, so valuable. It is what makes Bitcoin the only competitor to the Plutocrats. Bitcoin is Us. Everything else is Them.
