strikes me that the typical AML/KYC seems like a reasonable amount of regulation.

I think maybe they are just trying to ensure there isn't a whole bunch of other crap on top of that.

I hope.

Fuck yeah Wilson! Attack mode.  Cool

(He just ranted about the burdensome legacy banking infrastructure, all the forms to fill out, and how it could easily be put into code and automated.)

The twins have done fine, not as engaging and confident as Wilson, but they've not done btc any harm here.

Great, the female regulator just cited Rpietila original research. (Regarding the number of people who own half the bitcoins, which is pure speculation.)

*FACEPALM*

You'd think they'd have at least done a little more research, it is their job after all...

Why in the world are they asking about price volatility? Are the regulators also speculators?  Wink

Oh great, the asshole regulator on the right just started talking about "spending vs. hoarding." Yet another keynesian fuckwad.

Hoarding is not a problem at all, when money appreciates it gives people incentive to spend as well because it feels like free money.

Oh, Winkle doing a good job explaining why HODLING is actually necessary to facilitate transactions... the market cap and liquidity we have now is simply not enough to be able to absorb the transaction volume we'd expect with more and more adoption.

you can tell that each person speaking to the panel is very careful not to speculate on to what the max price they think bitcoin will reach...

I think Fred Wilson is getting a little bit too preachy about how the current system sucks and how banks will fight back.
