this debate on AMC/KYC is great and the kind of thing that repeatedly makes me sit back in AWE of Bitcoin. Beyond all the techie blockchain stuff and the controversies over use, intent and vision of Bitcoin is the very fact that masses of for the most part ordinary people are actually engaged in learning, arguing and trying to understand the fundamentals of what is Money?, how is it used?, how is it regulated?, why is it regulated? should it be regulated?
I initially was on the fence about KYC stuff, or to be honest never really thought about it much. It was just in the background of things i did everyday, it was just there and i never even questioned it. Now because of bitcoin I am no longer obliviously blind to it and see its fingers in everything I do in the fiat world.
Where ever bitcoin takes us, whether it succeeds, fails or just muddles along, the simple fact that it has woken so many people from their daze to look at Money and its institutions is truly amazing.
