What is your reason for buying\holding crypto, what is the end game for you?

I just cant see how BTC is any sort of revolution. Maybe as a holding asset that somewhat takes away from global growth, but not as a currency. People seem to think that decentralization is the end game, well it isn't if it can't support capitalism, and lending is the biggest part of capitalism I can think of, and I don't think I know much about economics at all, to be clear and honest. All I know for sure is the only crypto I have used when crypto was under heavy fire in 2017, was xrp, unfortunately, but it worked very fast and very cheap. Eth and btc did not. Lets lets say the US dollar crashes to the ground (which it seems maybe most crypto holders want), how is it going to benefit society if you really think about it. I honestly think the immediate transfer of wealth (if for example btc was suddenly the new world currency), would have to create an even greater global depression, one that would take decades to come out of as new "banks" would have to be formed to loan the new currency just for businesses or global economy's to operate, never mind the useless crap like unsecured loans, car loans etc. Just think for example how farmers and transport alone would function. I just wonder how many people have been bothered to think past "cool idea, better get it while it seems cheap". As an asset I kinda get it, it's cheaper and SO much easier to buy than land, stocks or even gold to an extent, but it seems it has no intrinsic value, just very shaky store of value for when physical assets can not be held for what ever reason. BTC seems like such a brilliant idea to come from a single(?) man, but it hasn't progressed enough and I don't think it can progress to a world currency. I think it's become a pyramid scheme of sorts for people who don't fully understand it, (they just like the idea of it, a lot like Marxism for example), and for the educated in macroeconomics and rich in fiat to take advantage of. If that's the case, open up, we can still all get behind it and...
