Hmm... How to say it... Only currency`s that will have some matter - will be strength of muscles, reaction speed, and only after that - brain power. Other values will be of limits for some period of time.

No.  Without society, currency is worthless.  There would be no currency.

Women and gasoline would be currency, along with water and crossbow bolts.

If technology was readily available and small networks could be easily assembled, I don't see why Bitcoin would be completely lost.

The best way to prevent society from collapsing in the first place is to move it away from fiat currencies and central banks =)
