Why America Can’t Regulate Bitcoin Review

I recently read an article titled “Why America Can’t Regulate Bitcoin”.

It literally blew my mind. I will provide a brief summary of the contents but the reader should read the entire article to understand just how accurate the author is - https://twitter.com/Beautyon_ and how much diligence and research into case law was performed.

Some facts that are true regarding crypto right now are that social media companies are censoring posts related to crypto. As I mentioned in a previous post, some of the 2017 crypto growth is attributed to social media related to crypto. If censorship by major media continues, it will be harder to educate new users about crypto using these channels and onboard them. Another major marketing point which attracts new users is increases in the price of cryptocurrencies as highlighted by the news.
