Crypto supporter here, happy to see the space regulated. The crypto space will never achieve any type of mainstream adoption until it’s regulated.

you might support but you don’t understand.

regulation is needed when you turnover custody of your assets.

crypto’s tenants are based self custody.

what you really meant to say is that you support regulating banks.

No, I meant what I said. Clinging to some weird, antiquated anti-bank dogma around self custody is exactly the type of sentiment holding the crypto and digital currency spaces back from mainstream adoption.

It’s wild to me that people sit on a pile of “self custody” magical internet money they have almost zero reasonable way to ACTUALLY SPEND/USE but hey, at least you’re sticking to the crypto “tenants”, it’s self custody, and you’re REALLY sticking it to the banks, right?

How do you suggest regulating things like DEXes, where no single person or entity has any control or insight beyond what is publiclaly available?

I never said I had the answer, I said I support finding a way to making it happen.

I don’t have the answer for curing cancer, but I support people smarter than me finding a way to make it happen.

it’s anti censorship

Okay, so (presumably) you have money invested into an asset class you can BARELY use for its intended purpose (a digital currency), because it’s “anti censorship”?

are you asking me to google censorship resistance for you?

No, I’m asking you to explain your position. But if what you got out of my reply is that I’m asking you to google something, we’re done here because I’m not wasting time discussing this with someone who made this kind of weird nonsensical leap.

don’t kid yourself. you wouldn’t be taking swipes at “digital currency” if you understood that censorship resistance is the “intended purpose”
