This was always on the cards.

I thought the attack might have come through the regulatory agencies. They guard their power jealously and if bitcoin is making inroads then they will pull out all the stops to prevent it happening.

The one benefit is that it will demonstrate to those who believe their nation is free that is is anything but. People do not realise they are in a cage until they touch the perimeter fence. This regulatory confinement has been intensified gradually over the years.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
