As far as I understand, governments & banks create money into existence. Governments, when run correctly, use it to build infrastructure, give grants and create jobs.

What if everybody begins to use a cryptocurrency therefore nullifying the value of the governments currency?

  • How will governments spend when nobody wants their money?

Government's tax citizens and businesses in their currency. Earnings (even earnings in cryptocurrencies) are taxable income.
