Polis FTW!


How often do you hear me say anything nice about a politician? Well, this:

Congressman Jared Polis is calling on the Treasury to ban physical dollars in response to Senator Manchin's plea to ban Bitcoin. "The exchange of dollar bills, including high denomination bills, is currently unregulated and has allowed users to participate in illicit activity, while also being highly subject to forgery, theft, and loss," wrote Polis in a statement.

To be sure, the Congressman is being cheeky. "This is just a satirical version of Senator Manchin's letter, meant to draw attention to the fact that BitCoins are not any more susceptible to the problems that the Senator points out than dollars," said Spokesperson Scott Overland.

Oh snap and so forth.
