Yellow Vests movement that has rocked France are planning a bank run similar to Bitcoin’s Proof of Keys.
The latest Yellow Vest’s demonstration, dubbed the “Collectors’ Referendum,” calls on supporters to withdraw all their savings from banks on Saturday.
The action aimed to “scare this (French) state completely legally and without any violence, yet more effectively than ever expected”.
According to expert assessments, the eventual turnout is likely to be low enough so as to not spark a crisis. Nonetheless, Bitcoin users have drawn analogy with last week’s Proof of Keys event that was aimed to encourage them to withdraw all coins stored with trusted third parties and take back control of their private keys.
