The truth of the matter is if your country is going through an economic crisis it's probably already too late. Becomes much hard to get your hands on bitcoin when everyone is panicking. You should be prepared ahead of time, get some bitcoin, and learn how to store it properly.
This cannot be overstated.
@mattodell I tend think people believe their governments will warn them ahead of time if they need to worry. Which isn't how an economic crisis works. It happens over night. This is a sad truth people ignore because it makes it easier to get on with their day.
@mattodell And guns, food, water.
@mattodell this is exactly the worry we have in South Africa with our government threatening to take away white farmers' land without compensation. If we can get bitcoin to be adopted wide enough in time we could help them hedge the inevitable capital controls that will be imposed to prevent them from taking wealth with them when they emigrate.
