I know of no country where bitcoin is illegal.
There are generally regulations or laws regulating bitcoin. Bitcoins are frequently classified as property rather than currency which can limit where it can be used.
Some countries, for example North Korea, limit Internet access but as far as I know have not made bitcoin illegal.
Using bitcoin to bypass vat, tax, money laundering or similar laws as well as in illegal activities is obviously not legal anywhere.

I tried to find a way to buy bitcoin in Canada using a Visa/MC Gift card, apparently that is "impossible". So I'm willing to buy using e-transfer, but I'm afraid the sites I buy from can connect it to me. Is that so? And no I'm not buying anything illegal (see comment for details)...

Usually I use a gift card credit card for these things but it's more expensive....so I'm going to be completely honest with what I like to buy (you can laugh all you want).
1) First is Chaturbate Tokens. You get the most "bang for your buck" by using bitcoin and that's the first thing I want to buy. It's my vice, I know I'm a loser but whatever, I enjoy it. 2) Phone verification. Sometimes I will send someone $2.50 or something (either on reddit or elsewhere) on paypal to verify a phone number account for something like discord. I don't want my real number on discord or other services other than the big 5 (Google/Microsoft/eBay/Amazon/Facebook). I don't trust the "smaller" guys and a lot of these random services want phone numbers, so I use services on reddit to do that.
So my questions are;
1) I can definitely not buy using a Visa or MC gift card, right? 2) Assuming I buy using e-transfer, what is the best site? And will they require government ID or can I just send from my real bank account?
For #2, I don't really care about them knowing my name/address, but I don't want a random bitcoin site having government documents with them. If it was RBC or CIBC I wouldn't care, but these random exchanges I dont trust yet.

Countries are pushing towards going cashless, that means every street drug dealer will end up using bitcoin. Illegal drug market is valued at $360 billion. Bitcoin's market cap would need to double to handle this.

Think about it, digital dollar is coming, other countries are pushing to get rid of cash too. Some of it is to push to get tax money, other reason is to push negative interest rates, among other reasons. There way more black market transactions that just drugs, but drugs alone is valued at $360 billlion. Bitcoin would need to double to handle that. Meaning price will go up at minimum +100%

I know this isn't the best reason for bitcoin to go up, but the underlying economics of it still hold true.

The US Dollar has a captive audience as in taxes in the world's largest economy and commodities such as oil are paid for in US Dollars, whereas Bitcoin can be used to avoid inspection when paying for illegal activities, avoid fees when transferring money internationally, and to avoid sanctions. With Bitcoin you can buy drugs on dark net markets anonymously and across borders, transfer money to countries sanctioned by the US through blocking the use of SWIFT (Venezuela, Russia, Iran) and avoid the effects on fiat currencies caused by Fed policy (such as QE and potentially negative interest rates). While Gold can be used as alternative store of value, it isn't as easy to transfer over large distances. And as seen in the UK, countries can deny transferring gold for political reasons. [link]1 I personally believe that if the US continues to sanction countries by using SWIFT in blocking crossborder financial payments, cryptocurrencies and foreign CBDCs (digital yuan) will grow in influence as the US's international financial power diminishes. Especially if its traditional allies (EU, UK) do not agree with the sanctions that are applied to foreign countries. The use of cryptocurrencies could accelerate at an even greater rate if there is an economic and/or cold war between the US and China. [link]2
