If governments of all countries in the world would probably be able if they wanted to destroy bitcoin. Because if they propose like a strike against bitcoin it will destroy the bitcoin.

The government can allow the digital currency to exist peacefully, and not accept it as a means of payment, I think that's what needs to be done. However, my guess is sooner or later the government will arrange to not exist.

The potential for government regulation is very real, in line with some countries that have restricted access to exchange of bitcoins and other digital currencies.

But I think if bitcoin enthusiasts are still a lot in a country, I think the government will be difficult to stop it.

The government can limit or prohibit the circulation of bitcoin in a single country, but it is impossible to destroy bitcoin. The decentralized system means that outside control is not possible.

There seems to be no denying that governments can ban cryptocurrencies. Some bitcoin proponents have argued that governments cannot really prevent bitcoin use. Jon Matonis once stated that “a government ban on bitcoin would be about as effective as alcohol prohibition was in the 1920s.” How could a government prevent people from using bitcoin? It’s online. It’s pseudonymous. And, as Matonis notes, “demand for an item […] does not simply evaporate in the face of a jurisdictional ban.”In general, governments might determine the medium of exchange by coordinating beliefs, employing transactions policy, and punishing users of alternatives. By declaring an item legal tender, for example, the government might create an especially salient focal point around which individuals can coordinate on a particular money. Legal tender status might be nothing more than a designation; it need not convey any special privileges under the law (though sometimes it does.

Government may destroy bitcoin if the world government agree that bitcoin will treat as illegal and government implement an legal action to banned bitcoin world wide.Governments and banks declares war against bitcoin but bitcoin stand still and became stronger and stronger.

I don’t think government can destroy bitcoin because for one, bitcoin follows a decentralized system meaning no one can take control of it even the government. So with that alone, i don’t see any possibility for government to be able to destroy bitcoin.
Although the features of bitcoin prevent government and make the government very helpless in managing it but that does not mean that the government can not destroy bitcoin, government always possessed terrible underground force than what you imagine, do not despise them. They certainly take measures to destroy bitcoin but perhaps, some of the components in the government system are related to bitcoin, combined with the benefits that bitcoin has brought to the people, that made the government ignore and not want to destroy bitcoin

Ever wish you could
turn back time to
when BTC was 1$?

I think government can not really destroy the Bitcoin because of its a lot of supporters and also the users of the Bitcoin.

This seems impossible to be destroy by the government because there was also no reason for it to be destroy.

For me I think it is depends if there was an issue that will destroy the bitcoin by the government. And as long as there was nothing wrong done by Bitcoin it will not destroy.

Governments can only ban bitcoin and cryptocurrencies by imposing a regulation and their will on that matter but they can not destroy bitcoin since bitcoin is decentralized and that the government can not intervene on its operation. It is likely that governments will be taking moves watching bitcoin in the same way, this is almost guaranteed, I think the bitcoin destruction is impossible.

I don't think so. Because a country's government has all the power to illegalized it but not to destroy it. I can do nothing to destroy bitcoin

if only the government of one country in my opinion will not be able to destroy bitcoin, because bitcoin is designed without being able to intervene in a country's government, that's in my opinion

I think it will not be possible, because many bitcoin users in this world even some developing countries have already received bitcoin. People who use bitcoin so much the government will not be able to destroy bitcoin.
Government dare to challenge the people? impossible.

If they can destroy the world for sure no more bitcoin existing right now right? That is why I really love bitcoin as it is not controlled by anyone and I am confident that no one can hack it.

All the bitcoins are under different person's control.  They can only transfer with the usage of password which they only knowing.  No one else authorised to even view.  So how any govt can destroy the instrument which they are even unable to touch.

I think it would be very difficult for a country that forbids bitcoin to remove bitcoin, because bitcoin is not born from a country. and users and investors come from all over the country.

The government can make policies that can complicate the use of bitcoin in the country in transactions, but the government can not completely kill bitcoin because of its decentralized nature.

It will not be easy for any country to destroy Bitcoin, because Bitcoin has become an international platform. And the Bitcoin currency has also become worthwhile currency in today's time. There are many people in the world supporting Bitcoin. They know what Bitcoin has in his life. Despite all this, the government can only try but can not destroy Bitcoin.
