Bitcoin could be 51'd by a nuclear power that commandeered a fab, or maybe conducted a stuxnet-level attack on Bitmain/Bitfury/etc, but that wouldn't kill it. It might halt the network for a while, but it would only strengthen the meme. Bitcoin lives in the minds of Bitcoiners.

How many unbanked people have we banked?

Money you hold in a bank account is not really yours at two levels: the bank owns it, and some national government controls the bank at the end of the day. Bitcoin is *really yours* in a way that will open up the possibilities of novel digitally-focused pseudo-nations.

Satoshi's Whitepaper sparked an idea which is now starting to challenge banks and governments in a very real way. Libra is far from BTC but the notion of challenging the establishment is happening. The cat is out of the bag.
