This is a bit silly though isnt it? Its a pretty neutral protocol that anyone with access to a computer and internet could use. In fact, if I'm not mistaken there were some pretty decent sized appropriations of cash going to Rojava through Bitcoin.

(also, for clarity, I find bitcoin to be ridiculous, the technology itself is cool, really cool in fact, but the proof of concept that bitcoin really is, is just stupid. Capitalism based on the gold standard, without regulations).
