1/ Our consumer org has caught flak for focusing on the significant regulatory hurdles to the general "crypto" economy rather than focusing solely on the merits of Satoshi's invention (#bitcoin) and a path to its universal adoption.
6/ Until people independently charge and get paid in crypto, or create mining collectives in their communities, the on-off ramps will shape adoption, and because these ramps are governed by financial regulators, there will always be a bottleneck.
9/ The arguments of the best cryptocurrencies can and should be fought, and coiners already vote with their wallets, their code, and their clicks. But regulation matters.
