In a sense, simply using Bitcoin Revolution is a rebellion against the established order. It is enough to shout at the manipulation of private or government financial institutions. And try to build a new order from citizenship. However, if for the crypto-users this is a symbolic, peaceful and gradual rebellion, for the Pentagon it can be much more. So they’ve prepared a plan to deal with an eventual rebellion by Bitcoin users.
What are the 3 types of Bitcoin users?
Of course, this can immediately raise eyebrows, revive fears, and even consider selling our Bitcoins to avoid a confrontation with the state. However, we must start by clarifying that such plans are not indicative of a government onslaught, far from it.
On the contrary, the design of institutional plans such as this is one of the main tasks of any Ministry of Defence, and the Pentagon is no exception. This is because, since the end of the Napoleonic Wars in the 19th century, and especially with the professionalization of the Prussian army. Strategic-operational planning has become the core of modern Armed Forces.
Thus, all countries handle dozens of „conflict hypotheses“. Intellectual exercises in which the country’s strategists pose different war scenarios, and prepare responses accordingly. So that, if the case arises, only the plan prepared in advance should be implemented, saving valuable time that can be used fighting on the battlefield.
Furthermore, this allows for the early identification of institutional weaknesses in the defence apparatus, and offers politicians realistic options in the face of political situations. And in a country as large as the United States, it is normal for the Pentagon to handle dozens of conflict scenarios. Not just against Bitcoin, but against countries, terrorist groups, and potentially insurrectionary domestic groups.

The Pentagon’s plan against Bitcoin
This does not mean that we should not take seriously from the crypto world, the Pentagon document published by „The Intercept“ newspaper and then reviewed by Forbes. Known as the 2018 Joint Land, Air and Sea Strategic Special Program (JLASS).
It poses a scenario in which Generation Z, that is, those born between mid-1990s and 2010, rebel against the U.S. financial system. Launching massive cyber-attacks against American stablishment institutions to steal fiat money, which they would then turn into Bitcoin. Calling this potential Bitcoin user rebellion the ZBellion.
This Pentagon plan would have been prepared in the year 2018, but it gained notoriety in the last days due to the message of the U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz from Florida. Who, through his Twitter account, suggested freezing the funds of American protesters.
