It is no longer a question of if but how New York plans to regulate virtual currencies.
Luckily for their most passionate evangelists, the head of the state's financial regulatory body believes they could hold great promise, despite their evident potential for facilitating crimes.

They work fine at enabling persecution of victimless actions that wouldn't be crimes under a system of government that actually respected human rights instead of being totalitarian.
