The US is getting wired. Maybe one or two of the things that are going on that are just awful could be patched up or worth waiting out, but after fixing one or two thing, you'd just be stuck wading though garbage same as before. Realising this, it makes any idea of patching anything a lost cause, because then the question becomes who are you patching it for if you aren't even gonna have a chance to enjoy it because of all the other problems facing you. The expression, "I don't know whether to fish or cut bate" comes to mind. Work on fixing things, take on liability, be made vulnerable, and lose more possibility faster.
Bitcoin since it's start seemed like it would really need a market where you can buy normal things consistently for it to become practical. Any crypto-currency (all of them) could be come equally as much a tyranny as our current financial system given the chance to become popular and widely adopted. I often imagine who I would explain the JBP explanation to why tranny pronoun thing is bad: They get to choose what they're called and they can change it at anytime, which means that you can be liable for not complying with their demand of a specific pronoun at any time, and if you are found liable menaces (more fines) can be decreed against you. So, you have to always avoid anything to do with trannies at almost all costs, but you have to do it secretly because if this is know publicly, you can also then liable for both discriminating against tarnnies (even if it's for legal problems created) and for not being ever made to be potentially liable for their pronouns. (Like how red-light avoidance is a crime.) Obviously, it would be easier if this was not in the legal system, and you wouldn't have to worry about getting sued for using She and not He or one of the made up ones. In our current climate of 'give people what ever they demand ...and hope that they go away' the Tranny Problem creates an immense burden on businesses as Yaniv's antics have demonstrated. Money can never be a way out for as long as the government has a tyrannical monopoly on the financial system.
Bitcoin is not as personal a technology as cash or ever charge cards. If you want someone to trust you're not scamming them and to take the leap of the new tech and associated buy-in that bitcoin is, then your customers are going to need to be able to trust you. I don't mean trust as a concrete thing, I mean feel comfortable with who you're going business with and that's there not going to scam you. Knowing to any degree of certainty that you are not going to be scammed is almost impossible on anonymous websites with anonymous site runners. Though this is the only option in the US because of the legal situation there. Therefore, *in the US* bitcoin has a significant bottleneck to adoption. As has been pointed out my many proponents of bitcoin, other less traditionally assumed to be stable countries do not have this problem with bitcoin. If people in those countries want to buy groceries, then it's not like their grocer is going to be on the hook for unpaid capital gains as they would be in the US. It feels like you have this bag full of holes in it's bottom. The bag has water in it daring from the holes. You can't know if you patch one hole which hole you should patch next. As the water starts to be completely drained from the bag, the holes become bigger from being worn by the water that's already drained out and the bag drains faster.
It's hard to see upsetting things everywhere that you want to help fix, but can't because if you did, even successfully, you'd be wiped out and not around to help yourself.
