MIAX Welcomes Industry Veteran Mark Wetjen to Lead ...

I compiled a the contact information for each of the regulators that Sen Joe Manchin has written to, asking them to ban bitcoin. Make your voice heard NOW before it's too late!

I believe that there is a small window for all of us to take action and make it known that bitcoin is not the playground of money launderers and thieves that Senator Manchin unfortunately has portrayed it as. If the Winklevoss Twins come across this by some strange chance, they might be able to arrange meetings with these people and lobby our cause (I'm sure they already have with some of them to some extent in the push to get their ETF launched). Same goes for everyone who owns a bitcoin business. This is extremely important. We can't let innovation be stifled in america when our economy needs it most. Take action now!

For Chairwoman White, I found this email address: [email protected]
For Chairman Gruenberg, I found the contact of people in his press office:CONTACT: David Barr, 202-898-6992, [email protected] [Note: RSVP for live coverage to Greg Hernandez at 202-898-6984, 202-340-4922 or [email protected].]
I couldn't find a way to contact Commissioner Curry: (I think this is him: http://www.occ.gov/about/who-we-are/comptroller-of-the-currency/bio-thomas-curry.html )
I couldn't find a way to contact Acting Chairman Wetjen either: http://.cftc.gov/About/Commissioners/MarkWetjen/index.htm
I couldn't find a way other than this to contact Chairwoman Yellen: https://twitter.com/federalreserve
These are the people heading up the Federal Reserve, the SEC, the FDIC, and the commodities futures trading commission. If anyone has better luck than me in finding their public contact details (NOT PRIVATE), I'll edit the post. They need to hear about how stifling innovation will only put America behind the rest of the world. They need to hear about the misinformation in the Senator's letter. They need to consider this fact from another redditor: u/jratcliff63367 9 points 3 hours ago So, Senator Manchin, are you also going to call for a ban on Dogecoin, Litecoin, World of Warcraft Gold points, Amazon coins, iCoins, frequent flyer miles, and all other forms of digital value transfer? How about gold and silver too while you are at it? I guess you forgot, this is supposed to be a free country. I am legally allowed to go to Las Vegas and gamble, I am legally allowed to buy and sell stocks, bonds, and commodities and trade them. How dare you suggest that digital value transfer should be made illegal. This is anti-american, anti-freedom, and just plain absurd!

Machin’s understanding of why Bitcoin has gained popularity might not square with supporters of the crypto currency, as he says “Bitcoin is a crypto-currency that has gained notoriety in recent months due to its rising exchange value and relation to illegal transactions.” Bitcoin supporters don’t necessarily believe its rise in mainstream popularity is due to illegal transactions, but ... After Mt Gox crashed on Feb. 24, the value of bitcoin fell to $440 – a three-month low after the currency reached highs above $1,000 at the end of November. Last week, bitcoin storage site Flexcoin announced it was closing after hackers robbed it of 896 bitcoins in its hot wallet, which equals some $600,000 worth of digital currency. CFTC commissioner Mark Wetjen has spoken out in favour of flexible bitcoin regulation in the derivatives space and beyond. Wetjen wrote that Bitcoin, which he refers to as a “virtual currency,” is important to the commission because a number of merchants who now accept Bitcoin for payment have expressed the need to hedge exposures to fluctuations in Bitcoin’s value. He said that the commission was recently presented with a swap contract on the digital currency that has been listed for trading by one ...
