"They’re not in it to grow your wealth or build the industry."

And pray tell, what industries are being financed by crypto? That is, apart from more crypto industries, none of which actually make anything.

Sure, you can drop it into your corporate treasury and hope like Musk or Saylor have done. But let's see what happens if that "money" can be used to buy anything but USD, EUR, etc.

It will never happen that a value store with extraordinary volatility will ever be anything but one or two steps away from gambling. Artificial scarcity is what is the value basis. It may still take some time, but eventually there will be a failure (even with quantum computing advances aside) and then any of the economies operating on this one tenuous construct will collapse.
