How (technically) can governments regulate bitcoin?

I have been in the P2P game for a long time and watched it evolved and seemed nearly unstoppable by gov't. I am wondering, how can the US government truly, long term control bitcoin w/ regulation?
It seems to be that if gov'ts block exchanges, they can be made decentralized as well or just done through tor.
If they make the transactions illegal then they would have to know every transaction that is happening which would be illegal as well and still could be worked around using something other means.
Short of cutting off access to the internet, I dont understand how gov't can get in front of it. If adoption continues, then it will become too big to avoid. So what happens then. Right now the 1.4trl produced in fiat by the reserve doesn't seem concerned with the mere 0.1trl global market cap of crypto but when that market cap is 0.5trl, 1trl.
I mean, lets face it, if the govt said tomorrow that Crypto is illegal, would just toss your coins away or would you still find a way to trade w/ them?
In my mind, Bitcoin is building infrastructure and trust as we watch fiat's trust and infrastructure crumble (Panama papers) and become contentious.

How can bitcoin be adopted by the regulators and governments?

Currently the status quo for bitcoin is being related as an asset/stock like gold, in more developed and democratic countries, while in dictatorship countries it is banned even more.
Regulators/governments should join the forces instead of fighting with crypto. They should see more advantages than disadvantages in it, even for them, not only for people in common.
And maybe this is the biggest challenge.
What practical steps and events can make governments and regulators be more friendly to bitcoin/crypto?
  1. I think one of the ways is to show the people why they would benefit from it, then they would vote for the political movements that would push the bitcoin adoption.
  2. Also creative ideas should come to make the bitcoin good for governments.
  3. Banks should disrupt themselves, reinvent themselves, instead of passively waiting for being destroyed.
Any ideas?

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 24%. (I'm a bot)
BEIJING - China's central bank told a top-level government internet finance group that the monetary authority can tell local governments to regulate the power usage of bitcoin miners to gradually reduce the scale of their production, a source said.
While the People's Bank of China can't directly regulate bitcoin miners' power usage, it can ask local authorities to do so, the central bank told members of the Leading Group of Beijing Internet Financial Risks Remediation at a meeting at the end of 2017, the source said.
Experts say China is one of the world's biggest sources of bitcoin mining, where miners solve complex mathematical puzzles with computers in order to be awarded virtual coins.
The intensive use of computers for bitcoin mining has boosted demand for electricity.
Bitcoin miners have feared that they could be the next target.
At the meeting, the PBOC said development of bitcoin mining will be limited, according to the source, who declined to be named as he is not authorized to speak on the matter.
