That's the beauty of it anon. The government has fully recognized that this IS efficiency and automation of... well every service the government is supposed to provide. It also provides a ledger anyone can access which publicizes corruption; anyone can see where the money goes to. Other countries have recognized they MUST adapt because trying to fight against it only puts them behind the rest, while technology only exponentially grows. America is set up to be the example of what happens when greed with imaginary money tries to fight against exponential progress... even a slight delay compared to others is disastrous. So America will fall. If you live in the US of Gay I would learn how to fully decentralize yourself to avoid getting caught in what is coming. The government will try to encapsulate it, but you cannot encapsulate something you have barely any grasp on, which these old politicans are clearly trying to do. God speed, there will be a lot of disinformation to try to get you to do the following:
>crypto is a scam
>join OUR (government) digital currency to be safe
>its going to be illegal to have your own wallet
>join xrp, its going to 1000s per coin! (Protip: 1 dollar xrp is 100 billion marketcap, 10 dollars is 1 trillion... 100 dollars is 10 trillion... does this seem reasonable)
>crypto is a security!
There is much disinformation, but doing your own research and learning tokenomics will help greatly. Remember, you become a slave to the things you own. Decentralize your finances, decentralize your location, decentralize your life. Then youll be truly free
