“I just do not have an itch to have to control everything that people could be doing in this space, and I think the present regime, clearly, they have it out for Bitcoin (BTC), and if it continues  for another four years, they’ll probably end up killing it”.

If the central authority has control over it, they would start imposing environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.”
