what a backwards place Brussels is

RT @NicholasVinocur@twitter.com

Gobsmacked by this ruling which will see Uber nearly stop functioning in Brussels from Friday.

Politics is one thing. There are people who depend on this service.

Including one family that has to use it most days for school delivery + pickup...

Changing the goal posts again. You’ve been locked down. You stayed home. Avoided travel and family & friends. You got the jab. You’ve followed the rules. Now @who@twitter.com says you better not get too damn comfortable, ‘cause it ain’t over.

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.

.@ConsumerChoiceC@twitter.com's @kokota@twitter.com and I made our case for Smart Crypto Regulation here: consumerchoicecenter.org/princ

8/ The lower we can make the transaction costs (as an economic principle, not dollars and cents) to on-off ramping, the closer we can get to broad crypto adoption. And that means treating crypto as a category in any policy debate or conversation, whatever our personal preference.

Show thread

7/ Or a threat that only certain countries with more relaxed rules will allow on-off ramps, which will necessarily limit market penetration and any crypto future.

Show thread

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.

Show thread

5/ That's because the greatest impediment to any growth in the crypto economy, "hyperbitcoinization", or whatever you want to call it, is the on and off-ramps. Fiat to crypto, crypto to fiat.

Show thread

4/ And this only gets worse if we don't push smart and innovation-friendly solutions that will keep the confiscatory and bureaucratic tendencies of national and supranational governments at bay.
