  • S.

  • Government or Bank of England, someone else is able to slow down the pace of growth, you know to just pull a massive restriction or do you think that this really is unstoppable that it won't be able to pull it back 30%.

  • Well, china is kind of doing it now until they get their stuff sorted out with the central bank digital currency.

  • Again, I don't think their intent is to get rid of Bitcoin is to clean it up.

  • They've got wild speculation going on.

  • They they've already they've got a problem with their private sector shadow lending markets anyway.

  • And crypto is being used for it also they've got a problem with money going offshore.
