blockchain – What am I supporting? Anarchy?

I started buying crypto in 2018. I’m holding on for the ride…boom or bust. However, that doesn’t mean I’ll ever understand it, and I certainly don’t need to jump on any anarchic or utopian blockchain bandwagons.

My most pressing question is this: who or what am I supporting when I buy bitcoin or ether? Did I unwittingly support the overthrow of governments when I bought crypto?

Lastly, who benefited the most in the early days of crypto? The miners? Investors who got in early? And who stands to benefit now? Where is all the money going? (By money I still mean US Dollars!)
