According to the famous cryptocladopelma Alex Kruger, while it is impossible to give a definite answer. The economist and well-known industry analyst, outlined his thoughts on the possibility of a ban of Bitcoin and perhaps other cryptocurrencies in the United States in one of the tweets. Its main provisions are as follows:

  • cryptocurrency is a clear threat to the banking system, as evidenced by the negative stance of governments worldwide in relation to Libra;
  • digital assets affects the capacity of Washington to manipulate situations in the world through economic sanctions;
  • as stated by trump, Bitcoin and the like may be used to facilitate illegal activities such as the laundering of proceeds from smuggling and tax evasion.

However, despite all these factors, Krueger believes that such a ban is unlikely.

Even if it will be introduced at some time, very soon the government will be forced to cancel it.
