A little bit of publicity – if Gensler is confirmed to run the SEC, I think we will see the US Bitcoin ETF in 2021. This guy knows blockchain/encryption technology very well.

Don’t think that we will demand a complete ban like some Bitcoin bears. But as Mike McGlone said, we will definitely see more and more scrutiny and supervision.
