Re: Is this where bitcoin comes unraveled?
I guess as long as the Chinese central bank has more mass then BitCoin -- the result will always be the same. Speaking of mass, I don't know why the central bank would even bother going after BitCoin, I mean it's not like BitCoin is a super AI using computational resource under the cloak of mining and transactions.
