Bitcoin Q&A: Regulation and the bank boycott



In 2014, you told the Canadian Senate to hold off on regulating cryptocurrencies for five years. What would you say to them now and do you see any new restrictions or regulations regarding bitcoin coming in the next 6 months? How would the Cryptocurrency Tax Fairness Act (HR-3708) affect capital gains reporting? Most regulations in the next six months will probably focus on ICOs and whether they fall under securities law. Custodial services which hold money on behalf of others may also face more scrutiny on a state-by-state basis in the United States. I don't believe in KYC/AML regulations. More and more interactions will move to decentralised exchanges; destroying the on- and off-ramps will just encourage people to stay in the cryptocurrency economy. Boycotting a technology or industry that is rapidly evolving is not a good idea. https://coincenter.org/link/the-crypt...
