The US will not ban cryptocurrency for a great many reasons now. One of the primary reasons is because crypto, and more specifically Bitcoin, will drive Web 3.0. Bitcoin is not just a token, it is a network protocol, upon which a great deal of innovation can be driven. Around 1990 or so, another network protocol was created that ended up overthrowing a lot of entrenched interests at the time. That protocol was http, or the World Wide Web. Could you imagine if the US had banned http, where we would be today? The US would be in the relative dark ages, the Googles, Facebooks and Amazons of the world would have been created in Europe or elsewhere. This is the stark reality that the US faces and what many there in positions of political power already know. If the choice is letting the rest of the world drive the innovation and keep the US dollar, or let the US Dollar go and be at the forefront of this wave of innovation then the US will choose the latter. The USD's days as world reserve currency are numbered.
