No that isn't the point of anarchism. The point of anarchism is to burn down hierachies. All hierarchies. Not reinforce them by calling e.g. capitalism anarchist / voluntary / libertarian (ancaps). Or the just as hierarchy-prone example you just used.

Warping anarchism to mean 'my bourgie hobbies' i.e. 'my glorious privilege' will be the death knell to anarchism.

Case in point: bitcoin is decentralized. And all it's done is allow the rich to buy lots of bitcoin and have yet another way to hoard their wealth and destroy the planet by burning fossil fuels.

Guess who came up with bitcoin? Ancaps. Can't wait to see what transhumanists come up with.
