Anthony Pompliano, Founder and Partner at Morgan Creek, said in a twee that Bitcoin never shuts down, after mentioning that Wells Fargo’s system is shut down.
He has also added an image in which a banker says that this is not FUD and that one of the managers of the bank said that the problem was nationwide. Apparently, the ATMs are not displaying balances and bankers cannot make changes on anyone’s accounts.
“Love having first-hand experience with the inefficiencies in banking!” said the banker.
Wells Fargo’s system is shut down right now.

Bitcoin is impossible to be shut down. Even if a country turns off the internet for a few hours, there are other countries that can turn on their mining rigs and set up nodes to keep the network running. Moreover, if there is a problem, nodes can be set up via satellite, thus making it almost impossible to shut the whole network down.
Bitcoin has been operative during the last 10 years and it has never suffered or experienced such a similar situation.
