On March 6, 2016, Jon commented on Bitcoin, Silk Road, and the Dark Economy :

How do you compare bitcoin with cash? Cash, on its own, is anonymous. Can we learn from how governments have placed rules on the use of cash and the tracking of cash (via financial institutions) to inform how we regulate bitcoin? What are the downsides (if any) of how we regulate cash now that we should avoid with Bitcoin? Is their a technological solution – not just for the currency but for its regulation – that might make the traditional regulatory schema obsolete?
