В @Felix LopezВ Well, a big part of it may be that the US government likes control, and hates losing it. To the extent of the demise of freedom of every citizen in your country, and other countries. More importantly, as a consequence new frontiers become a threat, not an opportunity. On top of that, at this moment there is no other way for them then to keep their fiat scheme running, while they know it is not sustainable. Therefore, alternatives like precious metals and cryptocurrencies are supressed. Can you imagine how much money will flow into these alternatives when the dollar collapses?
