Genuine Question NOT FUD
This is my first post here; I have been here for a while, just reading and learning; before I ask my question, let me make it very clear I am 100% in on Bitcoin, and I am actively orange pilling ppl
I like to believe I have a very strong conviction in BTC and believe it is ethos.
I also believe in don’t trust, verify.
Recently a colleague who is also into bitcoin sent me a message saying I know how you love a good conspiracy theory, and he said he read/heard somewhere the following:
“China invented Bitcoin as they saw how fragile the US economy was during 2008 GFC. So they created bitcoin to infiltrate the US economy and have this 15 year plan to slowly kill the US dollar so the Yuan can be the world reserve currency and show that they have controlled the US from within and they are about to have a massive sell off in the coming days”
I had no response to this and it got me thinking that this is in the realm of possibility,
So I would love to hear what you educated bitcoiners here think of such a claim and how I can respond to this, as well as put my mind to ease.
Thank you in advance
