Comment:
The demand for Cryptocurrency seems to come from a convex combination of various mafia organisations, libertarians who distrust the Government and financial speculators. The question seems to suggest that there exists a technology to control these groups by some central bankers, maybe sending a calvo fairy to forbid mining coins every other month to create price stickeness and finally gain some traction? We do not even fully understand what the transmission process of bitcoins to the real economy is but we are already debating regulatory oversight?
