I agree to some extent with what you’ve said. If the end goal is to become prepared to handle full scale societal breakdown, teotwawki on all levels, yeah, a trezor loaded to the gills with BTC probably ain’t gonna put food on the table. Pending society not cannibalizing each other within a months time; You would fare much better with a simple cache of bartering goods such as Liquor, smokes, or even toilet paper for that matter. In a true shtf scenario Gold is… mostly useless, outside of its shine and historical value. You can’t chaw on a lump of gold Pretty sure I could find vastly more worth out of a junked car than a lb of gold. So I’d be inclined to drop gold to the back of the line as far as metals go. At least up until society has congealed a little bit that is.
but I disagree with your usage of the word absurd.
^^^ Now that’s absurd… Just don’t go venturing through Utah with that attitude… Pretty sure the Mormons have a contingency plan in place for dealing with all that jazz lol. You are right though… but it’s horrifying to think such bedlam could ensue, yet sadly I hear it quite frequently. I don’t know though man… I like to believe that people would hold out hope for some length.
The idea of having crypto on hand is simple. What if “it” happens to not be worst case scenario. What if “it” is the collapse of the banking institutions? What if there’s a gnarly solar flare that cripples our infrastructure? What if the ramifications are mostly isolated to one continent? Basically, what if “it”, is something that we can still recover from? What if it takes a year or two to rebuild, perhaps only months? Generally speaking humans prefer to return to some approximation of normalcy post haste. We adapt and move on because it is ingrained within us. Within these parameters it is not inconceivable to think there may be a store of value within crypto still. Just my 2 satoshi’s to the pot
