I wish everyone knew this was the norm with any bill, not just the urgent ones. There needs to be a larger revolt about the pattern of this bullshit and not just when it pertains to a certain interest.

[–]yenachar 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Sounds reasonable. But let's start with this one!

[–]stink_bot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This one IS important!

Clean bill act

with a rider that gives us more power

I'm a Canadian but want to help. How can I?

[–]stink_bot 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We need more Canadians like you Sir...hats off to the maple leaf.

[–]yenachar 2 points3 points  (1 child)

1) Your encouragement alone is golden.

2) Please advocate for wholesome, moral, forward-looking crypto rules in Canada.

[–]ElGoodness -1 points0 points  (0 children)

What if morals belong in the sewer, generally speaking. Would Canadian ethics do instead? I got that in spades.

For those in the USA computer code is a form of free speech.

[–]MR_Weiner 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Silly argument. I mean you can write whatever code you want, but there are obviously legal limitations on how you’re allowed to execute code.

I once spelled fire in paint. Stop serving prison time

[–]JRhod3sie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s such bull shit that they can do this.

[–]Canadian-idiot89 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wish I was American so I could snap shit at some representative. Either way I wish you guys the best, go get em!

[–]Huckabuoy 3 points4 points  (7 children)

What’s the language? Your the only one reporting this. Must be sneaky for real. Please elaborate

[–]Always_Question[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's all over crypto twitter. I'm not the only one. lol



[–]one-man-circlejerk 6 points7 points  (2 children)

The linked article doesn't say it either, and the linked tweet says something about KYC? Anyone got any actual information about this?

From what I can see it's something about mandating exchanges report transactions for tax purposes, seems like that would only hit people who were not intending on paying tax on their gains?

Am I missing something?

[–]Always_Question[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The issue is that the language is so broad as to require even individuals (such as software developers, miners, stakers, LPs, etc.) to be caught within the definition of "broker," and then it basically imposes burdensome reporting requirements on everyone--reporting requirements that are usually reserved for full-fledged brokerage firms with dedicated compliance departments.

[–]one-man-circlejerk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the extra details

[–]Hanzburger 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Cmon ethereans, are we really downvoting this guy because he's not caught up on the news? This isn't the sub I know. These petty downvotes on this like this and new people asking questions are ridiculous. We're better than that.

[–]Always_Question[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

People are downvoting him because he was being a bit snarky. "Must be sneaky for real."

[–]Huckabuoy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Put the evidence in the body. Everyone is so tired of the I heard that....

[–]Alarmed_Patience_105 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If our corrupt government can’t control it or have their hand in your pocket, forget it

[–]yenachar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The US Treasury Department is the poster child for wayward democracy. I see no evidence they are acting in the best interest of their own citizens or following any moral code whatsoever.

[–]Huckabuoy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well blame anyone who ever said “I wanna be paid in BTC”. How do you think this all works.

[–]Western_Tomatillo981 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You misspelled, "Biden administration"

[–]SirNicksAlong 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This tells me a lot about how badly they need it to pass and how little they want people to notice.

It's afraid.

[–]JetherBStrong -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

I cant stand that ugly ass bitch

[–]nelsonblaha 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You're not helping.

[–]stink_bot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who? The VP?

[–]bleudefact -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

The republicans will allow this trojan horse to go through because they know voters will only blame the democrats.

Republicans outwitting democrats one more time....

[–]stink_bot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They be smart!
