It feels like the heat is over now. Although the price of bitcoin has rebounded a lot now, it has reached more than $30,000, but the heat of attention is far less than the development of AI, and even the big news in the currency circle seems to be unable to turn over what public opinion waves, isn't it?
For example, there is a big news recently, that is, the largest exchange in the currency circle and the United States law enforcement agencies, the largest exchange in the currency circle - Binance, his boss Zhao Changpeng and the United States law enforcement agencies reached a plea agreement, to pay up to 4.5 billion dollars in fines in exchange for the United States. This scene is almost identical to the plot of the book "The American Trap" written by a French Alstom executive that I read. Zhao Changpeng was also charged with violating U.S. law by conducting transactions with sanctioned countries, primarily Iran, in a typical example of the underhanded use of U.S. domestic law.
So the United States now claims to be liberal and democratic, but what does it actually do? Under the pretext of industrial chain security, they threaten companies to move out of China, and under the pretext of sanctions against terrorist countries, they prohibit enterprises and individuals from conducting free trade with these listed countries, raising tariffs and implementing trade protectionism. These kinds of actions prove that it is not a country that imagines the freedom that people think it is.
And Binance is said to have paid a huge fine in Zhejiang, plus Zhao Changpeng did not go through judicial procedures, and reached a plea agreement with law enforcement agencies in the United States, can be leniency, but also to do nearly ten months in prison, as the richest Chinese in the world - Zhao Changpeng's assets may be higher than Ma Yun? I don't know about that -- I don't know what to say about being so humiliated.
However, I have seen some coins on the network from the media, in the coin circle is really very few people, but also talking about this matter, some actually think that this is a good news for Bitcoin, its logic is really incredible. They said that the plea agreement is actually to allow Binance to be placed under the judicial supervision of the United States, equivalent to Binance compliance, Bitcoin transactions on Binance are recognized by the United States government, there will be a large number of legal funds into the market, driving up the price of bitcoin.
I can only say that this idea is very wishful thinking. If they read the book "American Trap", they will know that this punishment is entirely the abuse of their power by the law enforcement agencies of the United States, expanding their power, and seeking their own interests. Has nothing to do with regulating bitcoin and legitimizing cryptocurrency trading.
And these up owners simply do not understand the nature of Bitcoin. To become a widely accepted currency, Bitcoin needs people to know from the concept that it can become a currency, and it is a very good personality currency, and it is peer-to-peer, and does not need any authoritative individuals or authoritative organizations to endorse him. So Bitcoin needs the US law enforcement authorities to admit that its legalization is completely unnecessary, and these up owners do not really understand the nature of decentralization.
Actually, it's a little more extreme. Bitcoin it is a revolution, it is the life of the United States government agencies parasitic on the hegemony of the dollar, hoping that they will give Bitcoin as a wedding dress, carry the litter, and there is no difference with the tiger's skin, the price of bitcoin will rise, only because more and more people accept and recognize, not because the government of a world power approves its legalization. This is because for a world power to do so is tantamount to digging away the foundation of its own source of money and power, which is not to be expected. The Chinese government has made several moves to eliminate public trading of bitcoin in China. And the government of the United States, the world's leading power, should not expect it to be very friendly to Bitcoin. In a sense, because the United States is now the number one power, Bitcoin is a much bigger threat to it than China.
