Crypto does provide value propositions that don’t strictly rely on a user custodying their own funds. As demonstrated here, there’s an ability to exit local disfunction and plug into a global store of value/payment system. Users get these benefits even if through an intermediary.

Argentina was the richest country in America for some time in the 20th century but their government insists in destroying their wealth. I was surprised to learn that even though that is true, their gdp per capita is higher than Brazil gdp per capita https://i.imgur.com/pXlXeoC.jpg
