US Space Force Major Jason Lowery has made a bold prediction, suggesting that Bitcoin could become a cornerstone of US defense strategy, driving its value to unprecedented heights. Lowery argues that Bitcoin’s proof-of-work consensus mechanism could serve as a significant deterrent against cyberattacks, likening it to traditional military assets that deter physical attacks. He has even speculated that this realization could drive the value of Bitcoin to $100 million per coin. Lowery’s views are detailed in his book Softwar: A Novel Theory on Power Projection and the National Strategic Significance of Bitcoin, which explores Bitcoin’s potential as a tool for national security and power projection within the digital realm. His advocacy for Bitcoin extends to urging the US Department of Defense to formally investigate the national strategic importance of proof-of-work systems. This stance contrasts with the current regulatory approach, which has been more focused on litigation and control rather than support and integration of digital assets.
