Let me know if this is right:

Is that correct?

They could ban the account, as they have others, but not stop us from having the BitCoin.
Yes exactly, buy it at those exchanges and move your coins to a ledger or trezor. Once your BC is on a wallet you own/control no one can take it away, they could ban bitcoin but not actually take yours. It is all about the public/private keys, as long as you're the only one with the private key you're safe. That is one reason why exchanges aren't safe, they have your private keys and you do not.

Parallels what I wrote on pieville.

the point isnt where bitcoin is now - that's the error leftists make in pointing to capitalism as little kids working in mines.

the point is whether these real or imaginary difficulties people point to today are actual killers or mere obstacles.

if they can be overcome then bitcoin will eventually be worth a lot of money, unless some other crypto solves them first. but bitcoin has a running start.

the part that interests me is not what crpto might be able to do, it's whether there are any people or bottlenecks Big ZOG can get its hand around. and the one guy at my link is saying there is. and the other guy i quoted said arresting a dozen men would wipe out all coins but BC.

Impossible to tell right now. First real setup in a long time.
Sold out today on the pop @ 4825... Could trade a bit higher, but 9 indicates a top by Friday .

Crypto's are a favorite of criminal society, criminal assets are a favorite of the state, the state controls a significant enough share of the crypto market to influence & manipulate it.

It's freedom on a leash
