Anyone who thinks their bitcoin transactions are not being tracked are not facing reality. I am glad it was used to track down these horrific criminals.

I read somewhere it was much higher than that. But there is no doubt it is not stable enough to be a viable alternative to fiat currency at this time. Regulatory measures could help it stabilize but right now it is primarily used by the big players to: launder money, fund criminal activities, avoid income reporting, and evade tax responsibilities. It might be a novelty by innocent users for some but the broader implications are of far greater concern. I predict increased tracking and crackdowns by FinCEN and the IRS in the USA alone with reciprocal activities in other major countries dependent on income and sales tax revenues.

While some companies and organizations are protecting user privacy while others are not, the same is true for antitrust issues. He believes social media platforms are publishers and should be regulated as such. This is an interesting assertion. What say you?

We shall see. It seems to me, all privately owned (meaning the government does not fund them) have full autonomy by law to decide what they allow or don't allow based on the terms of service. This has been upheld in many courts. The private sector has no obligation beyond its ToS. BUT they do have an obligation to enforce their ToS which many do not do like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
