If you sold its shares in 2010 when China wanted to block Google, Facebook and Twitter, you would lose a lot of money. Thousands of billions of dollars [پول] It occurs in industries that China has banned. I think China’s doing this [حوزه] It is insignificant. It’s kind of funny, because for the last five, six and seven years, China has banned something every three months.

Such adaptations will continue, but no one denies bitcoin as a digital asset. If you look at last week’s Senate, [متوجه می‌شوید] There is a broad consensus among them. The professions and body language of all senators showed that they generally support bitcoin and the digital currency industry. Everyone wants good rules for digital currencies, I think legislators [در این زمینه] They have agreed.
