Like they do with Medical Pot growers. While I disagree with its "use" in principle, and not as a medium of exchange/comparative currency, I think the Govt is stealing as much as it can, without raising too much attention, so it can cash in on it later.
I have said too, all someone has to do to corner bitcoin, is save more than everyone else, then pull them out of circulation. Less supply will cause price to jump up, then they will sell them back and flood the market, crashing its value.
Only a few people/groups of people have enough money to really do this, and the govt is one of these.
