What would happen if the governments of US and China crack down on bitcoin?

Given the fact that now some people have grasped that there is a real value in bitcoins, at least as a store of value (also thanks to their resilient distributed network model) do you think that a crash would immediately happen if one day the news says that bitcoin is going to be heavily regulated or banned for every company in the US, China or Europe?
Do you think this is still a realistic scenario?
EDIT: -------------------------
I know well that US and China HAVE SUGGESTED that they won't do anything but I have also seen the news today, and that seemed to go in the opposite direction, resulting in a small flash crash, what if they take further actions that way? Could they?
MY 2 μBTC: -------------------
In my view every innovation, even when it's good, needs to be supported in its adoption, that is why I think that a well structured international lobbying activity is very important for the future of crypto at this stage

Thoughts on putting a quarter of net worth in bitcoin? Anyone already there?

I've been considering this for a few months now. I'm a 30 year old professional with net-worth ~$200k, mostly in diversified index funds. I first started investing in bitcoin in early 2014 (after the MtGox crash) and currently have ~$20K+ worth of BTC, so basically ~10% of my net worth. I'm strongly considering moving that up to 25%. I've done a lot of research on bitcoin over the past 2 years and believe I have a good understanding of the potential upside (huge potential as a safe store of value + worldwide decentralized transactions) as well as the risks (exchanges and online wallets getting hacked, private keys on cold storage or paper wallet getting lost or stolen, price volatility, altcoin competition, hard forking, China "cracking down on bitcoin" for the 16th time...). I'm solidly long on bitcoin I'm pretty confident we'll see 3,000 in 2-5 years and 10000 within 10, though it's probably going to be pretty hairy getting there.
A couple things I've already thought about in terms of reducing risks:
-Buying over several weeks/months in increments to smooth out cost basis. -Holding the actual bitcoin broken up into several different wallets (some cold storage, some online with trusted U.S. based wallets, some on major exchanges). Is there a 'good rule of thumb' people use for this? Like put no more than $X or Y%in any single online wallet or physical cold storage location?
For improving my upside, I'm going to margin lend some of my BTC broken up between 2 exchanges to reduce counter-party risk while still getting benefits of BTC interest income.
One thing I've been thinking about is the psychological component, from having so much volatility, and seeing price go up and down 10-20% in a couple days. Would appreciate any thoughts or advice from someone who's migrated from a "heavy dabbling" into having a significant fraction of net worth in a long BTC position.
Cheers

Time to go outside and get some fresh air - ignore the charts, prices etc for a few days.

The WHOLE market is heading south and my bet is it is temporary although there are a couple of major things contributing to this currently.
1) China cracking down on bitcoin mining
2) reports that 80% of all BTC now mined
3) Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon in South Korea reported that a total crack down and ban still a "live and open option" 4) France looking at a total ban and regulation on BTC, ETH, LTC and XRP
lots and lots of scared folk out there at the moment but I am not moving, if it all goes down then so be it but I bet it doesn't and rallies back
JUST HODL AND LEAVE THE MONITORING ALONE FOR A WHILE AND ALL WILL BE FINE - DONT PANIC AND SELL IF YOU DO YOU WILL BE AT A LOSS IF YOU BUY BACK LATER TRUST ME I HAVE DONE THIS A FEW TIMES BEFORE AND IT IS ALWAYS THE SAME. HODL STRONG FOLKS

Did I jump the gun?

Looking to learn from a recent decision I made last night because now I'm second guessing myself.
One of the deciding factors that got me into Bitcoins was the fact that China started playing big time in this game and I went on a gut feeling how big this opportunity was.
So for what I could invest and afford to lose was $500 for a total of 3 bitcoins.
Now after reading all of the news about China cracking down on Bitcoins and seeing how far the price fell. Not to mention how bad crashes have been in the past. I thought to myself that for a big as China's play helped take BTC to $1,000, the reverse would be just a dramatic. This is also considering other negative factors like Silk Road, Mt. Gox, and the recent decision on how the IRS is treating Bitcoins as property and not currency.
So, I decided to cash out all 3 BTC's that I own for a total of $1,300 making my initial investment back and then some. First I could actually use some of the money at this moment. Second, I'm having the expectation that BTC will drop even further to let's say the $100 range because of the drastic drops in the past and when it does I'll buy back in with the ROI I gained and have more BTC than I did before.
Now, that I had a chance to sleep on it I'm second guessing myself but since it's such a small investment I'm not sweating it that much but I just wanted to come here and put what I did out there for opinions to learn and see if I made a mistake or not.
