This is the flaw Bitcoin tries to solve. Theoretically, if a country's economy collapses, Bitcoin would remain almost unrestricted. After all, instead of relying on a higher authority, it relies on math, an algorithm powered by a decentralized network. In other words, Bitcoin could be an alternative against a downturn in the world financial system; that's if it doesn't collapse for its own reasons, of course. It is not perfect, but it is separate, and it can help. Another benefit of this lack of central control is that the government cannot stop you from giving Bitcoins to anyone you want. In 2010, the US government tried to silence Wikileaks by cutting off its money supply. Banks and credit card companies were prohibited from transferring donations to the site. And it's hard to deny the impact Wikileaks has had on the world. Then Wikileaks began to suggest that its users donate using Bitcoins, something the government could not control or stop. Sure, this sense of anarchy and anonymity can be used for some outlaw practices, but this kind of freedom allows Bitcoin to support practices that, for good or bad, the government and big business won't let you do. It is already noticeable how cryptocurrencies are completely changing the way to do business, and dealing with them around the world. A drastic change that has been seriously worrying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
