Basel Committee report notes

A group of regulators included in the so-called Basel Committee, considers the threat of mass introduction of cryptocurrencies in the global market.

“Blockchain, but not Bitcoin” is an erroneous slogan

Question: exposing the statement “blockchain, but not bitcoin”, how can we convince an ordinary person that such logic is erroneous?
