Will BTC work without the internet

in brainfeed •  last month

It seem that by using SMS the answer is yes.

Interesting that with a power blackout banks or ATM's could not work.
Whilst some cash would have been in circulation, the chances of a longer blackout may have ended that as merchants
collected the cash & paid it to suppliers.
But with inflation factored in the long term use of cash may be in dout anyway.

So the winner(?) in a long blackout seems to be crypto or BTC, with more adoption & acceptance.
