I think the government will eventually come after Coinbase.

I'm pretty shocked Brian was allowed to start up in the first place out there in Cali.

Online internet gambling/ wiring law of 2006 that Bush administration passed I could see being thrown at coinbase. Or something else.

If coinbase gets shut down, expect a huge spike up in the price of bitcoin. As this would not make it very temporarily harder to buy bitcoin, it would also be the first visible evidence that the US gov is threatened by bitcoin.

What's stopping them from moving offshore where the government has no authority?

Do you think it is better to keep bitcoins in the private bitcoin wallets, or is it OK leave them in bitcoin exchange wallet?

It's probably safer to keep them in a private wallet (encrypted, with multiple backups). If you plan on day trading, though, you'll have to regularly keep at least a few coins in an exchange.

If they ever made it illegal to own Crypto-currencies, we could always just send them to an online wallet and pretend like we don't know what they are.
