What happens to bitcoin if they turn the internet off? @Blockstream Satellite program is designed to address exactly that. With the just announced version 2.0, users can synchronize a bitcoin full node without an internet connection.

Number 4, from @Cointelegraph

Blockstream Satellite 2.0 increases the data rate by 25 times and allows users to download a full node from space.
Blockstream’s updated protocol for their satellite service makes it possible to download a full node without an internet connection.

It takes less time to sync a new #Bitcoin full node over #BlockstreamSatellite than it does to sync a new Etherium full node over broadband. @Excellion re-tweeted @adam3us 2-3 weeks, we can tune parameters without software-updates, actual speed is a tradeoff with minimum dish size (so far 60cm), sensitivity to accurate positioning, and weather interference at edge of coverage zones. (and cost! much more bandwidth can be obtained for $$$)

Number 2, from @Blockstream

We're excited to announce #BlockstreamSatellite 2.0. This major update includes a new transmission protocol, more bandwidth, a larger coverage area, & the much requested ability to sync a #Bitcoin node from the genesis block up to the latest block.
