Thanks for listening to this episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin, content for today's show was provided by Stephanie, Adam, Jonat..

Interview Location: Washington
Date: Friday 21st Jun, 2019
Organisation: CFTC
Role: Commissioner
While Bitcoin is a way out of big government, a fight against ill-disciplined fiscal policies, it is to be expected that departments such as the CFTC and SEC will regulate the space. While China has taken the draconian decision to largely ban cryptocurrencies, the US has taken a more pro-innovation approach, aware that over-regulation will push the technology into other markets.
In this interview, I chat with Brian Quintenz, a commissioner at the CFTC. We discuss the difficulties in regulating the Bitcoin Futures markets, whether the current US government's regulations are outdated and the history of the CFTC and Futures markets.
We discussed:
The history of the CFTC
How Futures work
Self regulation v formal oversight
Bitcoin's unique characteristics
Facebook Libra
Privacy coins

Welcome to episode 65 of The Bitcoin Game. I'm Rob Mitchell, and I just got back from the Bitcoin 2019 conference in San Francisco. I'm really glad I decided to attend after taking a long break from conferences, as I had a great time and got some really good interviews. I'm going to release them in the order I recorded them, so up first is Jimmy Song.
Oh, I also want listener feedback. This interview is unedited, whereas my typical episodes are heavily edited, with the goal of delivering the most listenable and content-dense experience possible. But all that editing takes a lot of time, which reduces the amount of content I release. So please give your feedback on this episode's show notes page (below), or I'm theBTCgame on Twitter. I've got some cool Bitcoin stuff to give away to a couple of people who give me feedback, in case you need additional incentive.

Bitcoin is hard!
For new people discovering Bitcoin the rabbit hole is deep, from tech to security to economics, there are many topics to understand. Further, the long and volatile history of Bitcoin is also relevant, from how the tech has evolved to the personalities to critical events such as the scaling war. Bitcoin is hard!
Bitcoin can also be unwelcoming; the social channels for discussing Bitcoin can be hostile. Whether on Reddit or Twitter, a misstep can be met with anger and humiliation.
Some argue that toxic levels of hostility are good for Bitcoin as it defends against hostile attacks, others (myself included), while understanding the hard-line nature of some Bitcoiners feel that there needs to be a more considered effort to onboard and educate people about Bitcoin and the risks of altcoins.
