Governments could declare Bitcoin and crypto to be illegal, but that wouldn't mean they could enforce it. That’s the case with other things, not just cryptocurrency. So, there is a distinction between declaration and enforcement. We all know that just because something is declared illegal, that doesn’t mean it can be enforced. If you really thought otherwise, you would have to think governments are all-powerful.
