Re: The root of the problem is being ignored

Actually, I'll give you one; you called soapbox, after all. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies deprive the government/regulators/whoever of any significant level of control over who can and cannot make financial transactions. The analogy of 'digital cash' is not a very good one, but the benefits/detriments of cash and cryptocurrencies very often align.
