I think it was more the angle of "we cant track/tax it so its only
use is to launder money", not counterfeit. 

From the government's perspective, I don't think there's a difference. Anything that can't be taxed is bad, m'kay?

Looks like Musk is messing with the value of several cryptos by his tweets here lately. Pissing off the FTC.

I think its more that he told people, than he actually bought it.

Seems Gates is trying to manipulate the crypto market now. Saying its bad, drive value down.

Wonder what his angle is. Seeing a lot more of his ugly evil face here lately, in a variety of situations.

Right, but must be a reason for his attacks.  Is it to devalue and hurt Musk, just to be a prick?  Or he want to get the prices down so he can buy them all and cut us out of using digital currency?  Or is he coming up with his own 'blessed' version..

Everything he does is for a reason. ( all about him of course, but still, a reason )

Probably all of the above. Bitcoin is not controlled by the .01% and therefore must be stopped.

If he is guilty as proposed, then nearly every investment firm on the plant needs the same treatment. And lottery.

But the lottery is for the children, for education!  Has education not improved since the start of state lotteries?

 

If lotteries helped education then people would be educated enough to realize lotteries are not a good investment.

I think ours went to lower taxes on plates, public pensions. And of course politician pockets via some 'project fund' for building stuff like roads, internet, etc.

The actions against McAfee by the DoJ and the IRS represent a worrying shift in the view of the U.S. government’s criminal enforcement arm.

Earlier this month, antivirus pioneer John McAfee was officially charged by the United States Department of Justice on seven counts of fraud and money laundering. These charges have been filed with respect to his activities in the crypto space from 2017 to 2020.

Crypto in general is problematic for ... let's call them "Big Fiat".  A large shift of economy from fiat currency to crypto currency would mean that Big Fiat can't just "print more" to enrich itself at the expense of inflating the currency.

As I've mentioned before, I'm surprised that they haven't simply declared that all crypto currency transactions are de facto counterfeiting.

But it would be funny to see the NSA have days when they dedicate all their acres of compute resources to mining :)

I watched what I think was a senatorial meeting some years ago, where they joined up together to discuss what to do regarding cryptos. I was fearing they would start arguing how to ban them. Instead, they first speaker started with a line that can be summarized as:

"There is a lot of money to be made here. We have to ensure all this crypto stuff is done in the US so we get a slice of the pie instead of letting anothern country get ahead of us in this tech."

The latest news is that El Salvador is going to make Bitcoin legal tender, i.e. a legit form of currency within their nation.

This has all sorts of implications and should be an interesting experiment.
Hopefully it works. It would be great for other nations to follow and eventually take fiat powers away from all of the governments.
