Receding hairline dude??? Man has to know his limitations.
How can he regulate a miner in China, Canada or Bulgaria? He will regulate a miner in US, hence other countries will get more bitcoin-simple.
Charlie Lee had a brilliant proposition yesterday-all three word agencies have to start mining NOW-it will increase their budget, LOL.
He also thinks that miners are "strategic", LOL.

Christ, isn't he just! It's all he talks about!

If the US government wanted to make sure the miners couldn't do what they wanted, they could simply set up a mining operation of, say 25% of the network. Job done.

Zabel came across well.

They're trying to buy all the coins.

I am watching some of this while I am at the office.   I am actually really impressed by Lawsky, and the people on the panel asking the questions of the bitcoiners.   They seem really open minded, and don't act as if they are economic gurus.   They seem open and willing to help move the industry forward if possible...

also, in the second video, Charles Lee raises a point that although bitcoin may be potentially vulnerable to attack from large foreign powers, the USA equally has the power and resources to secure the system. That could be critical if the USA needs to make a decisive decision to back Bitcoin.


LOL. They would start an ASIC farm and grab 40% of the hashing power, then they would say "We need over 51% so that we can fuck with the known terrorist wallets!"
Then they would gain 51%, and get really confused when BTC instantly crashes to $0 and nearly all the value travels to Litecoin, Namecoin, and DOGE.

"Hmm? But we're from the government, we're here to help! Why don't you want our AML help?"

DOGE? You must be joking.

This last panel which just took place, the 3 panelists did an excellent job.

Regulators are very open minded it seems.

I hope that they did not invite that Boston professor for the academic panel; he is just full of venom.
