Enforcing Cryptocurrency ?

I hope nobody is mixing up two separate issues here.

Hacking into a computer is a crime of course and should be dealt with according to law.

BUT it should NOT matter to the law whether the accounts in question had 2 bitcoin or 2 MILLION bitcoin.

Because if it did that would mean the feds were enforcing the value of cryptocurrencies, which central banks at least are NOT happy to do.
