Central bankers are not sitting back idle. Aside from a few countries where bitcoin is legal, such as Japan, Singapore, Switzerland and South Korea (not sure about the last one), the central banks are putting pressure on the respective governments to curb the use of crypto-currency everywhere. But as we can see, their measures have failed so far.

Is that really the case? There's been action against darknet markets; that's expected. Okay, the BTC-e thing was a bit out of left field, but I think that can be explained by an overall crackdown on unregulated exchanges. I think that BTC-e will have been the most dramatic shutdown, but certainly not the last. Cryptocurrency is simply getting too mainstream now for the unregulated exchanges to survive many years longer.

In theory yes, however it would take considerable effort to co ordinate and execute a plan as elaborate as that. Until then, bitcoin gives some power and control back to the masses.

Biggest threat to them especially central banks is bitcoin. These elite 1% of the world population have power and control over everything and i find it hard to believe that they will let bitcoin grow and overtake them.
Central banks can create unlimited fiat money out of thin air. Can they use that unlimited fiat money to keep buying all the bitcoin to drive the price up and when it is at its highest create a huge sell order to crash bitcoin and kill it off?
Is there any suspicion now or evidence to show central banks is buying bitcoin at whatever price with their printed fiat money for the sake of crashing bitcoin?

Unfortunately they will have to accept bitcoin because if they cannot stop it then they cant find a way around it. But that does not mean they cant still have their way in bitcoin in the sense that by the time they realize that they need to fall in line, then they create another bank to handle crypto currency and when they do that, it then mean they will have to buy a lot of it to be able to maintain the reserve, Since they then have the funds they can make that happen. With that, they can still control the activities of the crypto community.  So, not all news are meant well in the long run.

If you are claiming that Government or Central banks are just sitting back and watching Bitcoin grow, then you are wrong. This was the case some 3-4 years back. But now they very well understand what Bitcoin is capable of.

Every country and central bank have their own stand on Bitcoin. Like in Switzerland some banks are incorporating Bitcoin in their system, in China and Russia they are testing their own currency, somewhere Bitcoin is completely ban(not very efficient to ban an internet currency), some are accepting Bitcoin with regulations and enjoying tax benefits. So nobody is ignoring Bitcoin. Every country is so far trying to put their laws on Bitcoin because they know they can't kill it.

Bitcoin can be 'huge' with very few people involved.

If you hadn't noticed most of the world is skint and dependent on central banking. How many gold owners do you know?

Yeah, but being "huge" is a far cry from what the OP is talking about (Bitcoin as the biggest threat to central banks and governments). It could definitely thrive in a niche similar to gold.

As far as the OP's concerns, I don't think that the authority of governments, generally, is being threatened right now. People are definitely still locked into a statist mindset, for the most part.

You must realize Bitcoin is still very early in its development most people do not know about it and have no intention to learn it will take many years before the banks feel threatened by it and then they will no longer be sitting back.

Actually the power and control Bitcoin gave back to the people is the nightmare of most governments across the globe, because it erodes their hold and influence on the people and by extension the entire economy. Working through their agents - the central banks, we have seen the governments of a few countries trying to ban Bitcoin, but much to their chagrin, Bitcoin went ahead to become more popular in those countries, China and India for instance.

It's however interesting to see that there are still smart and foresighted governments out there, who instead of joining the bandwagon of Bitcoin haters, opted instead to create enabling environment for it to thrive. Evidently, the technology behind Bitcoin have what it take to check corruption and we can begin to see vividly, why some governments would never see anything good in Bitcoin.

Many countries already started to create their own crypto currencies. Many central banks are thinking about it. They surely won't sit and watch.

Is there any suspicion now or evidence to show central banks is buying bitcoin at whatever price with their printed fiat money for the sake of crashing bitcoin?

Buying all bitcoins to crash/kill bitcoins doesn't make much sense to me. It is quite possible that central banks/governments might sooner or later start acquiring bitcoins to hold as reserve. How would the governments buy all the bitcoins? Would everybody be willing to sell their bitcoins? Simply, no. Let's assume that central banks somehow got hold of 50% bitcoins, by this time the value of bitcoin would skyrocket, would break all the records, each bitcoin would be worth a million.

What purpose does it all serve to the central banks? Nothing. Even if they managed to crash bitcoins price, would they be able to kill it. No. Bitcoin is a revolutionary idea of programmable money. Governments wouldn't simply be able to kill off bitcoin/cryptos. The best thing governments can do is like Japan and Australia legalize bitcoin and incorporate it into their economic system.

Central banks can not stay away from the digital currency for a long time, as they will lose their profits. Therefore, over time, they will be forced to support the crypto currency at least to some extent by providing services for the purchase and sale of crypto currency. It is unlikely that they will take any grandiose steps to discredit the digital currency, since

yeah .... central banks will accept bitcoin or the cryptocurrency in the future
they cant prevent it because many people will accept bitcoin as currency
The central bank of Philippines has already legalized Bitcoins. May be banks of other countries also start accepting bitcoins in near future? As a matter of fact, they really do not have any other option than legalizing bitcoins and cannot deny its importance for long. Soon, bank systems will be revolutionized.
