Back in December, Adams made a series of predictions about what would happen in 2018 - 2019 that we're already seeing come to pass. Concerning Bitcoin specifically, Adams foresees more attacks by governments and central banks against the cryptocurrency, which these entities see as a threat to their own financial control over society.
Explaining how the crypto markets are easily manipulated, Adams believes that it would be "child's play" for central banks like the Federal Reserve to leverage their power and control over the digital crypto space if they decide to do so. They may be doing this already, in fact, as Bitcoin recently saw more than half of its value disappear in a matter of weeks, tumbling from nearly $20,000 per coin to under $8,000 per coin (it's current value hovering in the $5,000 range, as of this writing).
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) even reported on February 2 that Bitcoin is "falling fast" as a result of major selloffs, presumably prompted by regulatory crackdowns on the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin has seen moderate increases since then, but it's nowhere close to what it was back in December.
"2018 will be the year that central banks begin to fight back against the growing phenomenon of cryptocurrency," says Adams. "Manipulating the crypto markets is child's play for the central banks, which will no doubt engineer a panic selloff or cyber attack on the blockchain as a means to destroy the credibility of crypto in the minds of the public."

Another strategy that those trying to take down Bitcoin will likely ramp up in 2018 is increased negative reporting about the cryptocurrency. Adams foresees more mainstream media stories about people using Bitcoin to launder money, traffic children, and commit acts of terrorism, which could lead to more people losing trust in the digital currency, thus driving down its value.
A major "false flag" event tied to Bitcoin could be the trigger that brings the crypto-coin to its knees, as government entities would then try to pass laws to further regulate crypto transactions and make it harder for people to buy and sell Bitcoin anonymously, and without having to go through a middleman like the centrally-controlled Federal Reserve.
There may also be an uptick in media reports about Bitcoin being tied to "deep state" agencies like the NSA (National Security Agency), which could have the effect of making people distrust who actually controls Bitcoin. Some people already believe that Bitcoin is basically "NSAcoin" – or as Adams calls it, "FedCoin."
All of this will be used to steer people away from Bitcoin and towards actual Fed-controlled crypto alternatives, which may already be in the works (or possibly even be ready for impending release). However it all plays out, Adams believes that the endgame for the central planners is to maintain control over the financial systems of the world by any means necessary – even if that means bringing down Bitcoin.
"Remember: The establishment isn't anti-crypto," Adams contends. "They're just 'anti' anything they don't control. They love the idea of crypto as long as they can track it, confiscate it and tax it. Their next big move is to discredit Bitcoin and shift people in to a crypto system they control."
