This is almost certainly a silly question, but there are a lot of new bitcoin owners like me and a specific threat was made today which sounds credible to those of us who lack deep knowledge of bitcoin.
The specific threat is this one:
1: China controls 70% of the miners. SOURCE
2: They are using Hydroelectric and Nuclear Power reactors to do this. SOURCE
3: The United States (and allies) are seeking to destroy bitcoin in a war with China.
4: Bitcoin will go to 0 and US regulated coins will survive. SOURCE
So it's kind of 2 threats rolled into 1 and I'm trying to come up with a "probability of threat number" to determine if I should even devote time to considering this.
My guess is that the probability is less than 1% but it's just a guess and I have a high amount of uncertainty due to my current depth of knowledge.
Again, please forgive the silliness of the question, but any assistance to help improve my confidence that the threat is not to be taken seriously would be appreciated.
