Where exactly did I say any negative thing about fiat? If anything, my whole point is that fiat, as much as crypto, is a tool. How people use it is a different subject. See you keep attacking me with ad homs, and that's fine, but at least make sure you are accurate on your attacks. I didn't say a bad thing about fiat yet you call me a hater. Da heck man?I don't hate cypto. It's their obnoxious fan boys more than anything. This thread is just more confirmation. Certainly not as much as you seem to hate fiat. The inherent fact that one can lose a "wallet" any time by hard drive cash, corruption, lost or stolen laptop/pc and are more prone to theft via hacking, etc. does not make it safer in my eyes. And confiscation of accounts/wallets is just as real and possible as freezing bank accounts. That false sense of security seems to be why we continue to have headline articles like this. But you do you.
You cannot lose a wallet by a hard drive crash btw. I mean sure, there are ways to lose your wallet, but that's entirely up to you. You cannot lose your cryptos because a third party, be it the goverment, a bank or just a thief decided to take them away, which is the case with fiat. I see you haven't heard of smart contracts or of different ways to secure your wallet. I'm not even exaggerating, there are ways to make sure you CANNOT lose your cryptos even if you wanted to.
Just an example, you can setup a smart contract which dictates that "If I do X then you will transfer the cryptos of this account to this account". X might be anything you want it to be. Sending an email with your ID or whatever. Meaning, even if your wallet is stolen or lost due to a harddrive crash, all it takes is your command to have your cryptos to another wallet of your choosing. Also, if you really wanna be safe, you don't keep your wallet to a hard drive, exactly for the reason you mentioned. You can print the keys into a physical form, be it a metal plate or whatever.
