The world’s nuclear stockpile is 15,000 warheads, although scientists believe that 100 of them are enough for a nuclear winter.
Earlier cryptocurrency pioneer Charlie Shrem alsoexplained why Bitcoin could survive a nuclear war. He said that in that case there would be no banks, and Bitcoin would be able to work via satellite Internet and through renewable energy sources. According to him, this will be possible even with the complete destruction of electric and telecommunication networks, and in such a case, some Bitcoin supporters buy satellite Internet equipment, autonomous power supplies and protect their equipment.
