United States Senator and cryptocurrency critic Elizabeth Warren has announced her bid for President in 2020, the New York Times reported on Dec. 31. Following her announcement, Sen. Warren made plans to visit the state of Iowa, which hosts the first presidential caucuses in the country in February 2020.

據《紐約時報》報道,美國參議員,數字貨幣批判者Elizabeth Warren在12月31日宣布將參加2020年總統選舉。她發出聲明後,就計劃去參訪愛荷華州,該州會在2020年2月進行總統競選預備會議。

Warren is the senior U.S. senator from Massachusetts and has held office in the Senate since 2013. The senator is known for her criticism of cryptocurrencies, having repeatedly expressed concerns that cryptocurrency consumers could be hurt by scam initial coin offerings (ICOs) while also stating that crypto is 「easy to steal.」

Warren是來自Massachusetts的美國資深參議員,並且自2013年一直在參議院任職。她以對數字貨幣批判而聞名,她之前表達過對於數字貨幣參與者被ICO騙局欺詐的擔憂,並且表示數字貨幣非常容易被盜竊。

Speaking at a Senate Banking Committee hearing in October, Warren asserted that 「the challenge is how to nurture productive aspects of crypto with protecting consumers.」 The Senator also outlined that American consumers are falling victim to cryptocurrency scammers. Sen. Warren reiterated her critical stance in November, stating:

在十月的參議員銀行委員會聽證會上她提出「現在面臨的挑戰是如何從多方面保護投資者」。她同樣指出不少美國投資者成為數字貨幣詐騙的犧牲品。她在11月重申她的批評立場,並指出:

「It』s American families that end up paying the price when any regulator says we』re more interested in Wall Street. What I think is that we need a [Federal Reserve] that is engaged in watching where risk builds up in the system. That』s the Fed』s job — that』s not the job of American families.」

監管者們卻放任不管,並表示我們對華爾街更加感興趣時美國家庭必將為此付出代價。對此我認為我們需要一個聯儲局來觀察這個充滿風險的系統。這是聯儲局的工作,而不是美國家庭的責任。

Regulation of the cryptocurrency space is a matter of much concern for industry players. Today, venture capital investor Fred Wilson wrote in a blog post that he is especially concerned about the 「actions brought by misguided regulators who will take aim at high quality projects and harm them.」

數字貨幣的監管是整個行業關心的重要議題。現今,風險投資者Fred Wilson在部落格中撰文表示,他當前最大的擔心就是「不少規管機構的誤導去破壞一些高質量的項目」

Wilson also suggested that Donald Trump will be impeached and removed from the White House by the end of 2019 following a report to be issued by Robert Mueller that outlines an alleged history of illegal activities by the president and his electoral campaign.

根據Robert Mueller的一篇報告,Wilson同時預期特朗普將在2019年底下臺,該報告概述了總統和他的選舉活動所涉及的非法活動的历史。

On Dec. 6, U.S. Representatives Darren Soto and Ted Budd introduced two bills aimed at preventing cryptocurrency price manipulation and optimizing the regulatory framework. The first bill outlines possible scenarios of price manipulation in crypto markets and advances remedies, whereas the second calls for a comparative study of regulatory arrangements in other national jurisdictions.

在12月6日美國眾議員 Darren Soto 和Ted Budd介紹了兩個針對防止操縱數字資產價格和優化監管框架的提案。第一法案概述了針對操縱數字貨幣價格的問題以及預付補救措施的可能情景,而第二項法案要求對其他國家司法管轄區的監管安排進行比較研究。

In November, the state of Ohio began accepting cryptocurrency as a payment option to pay taxes. Businesses will be able to pay 23 different taxes using BTC through an online portal that has been set up by the state treasury office. As it stands, individuals will not be able to use the service to pay private taxes.

11月,俄亥俄州開始接受數字貨幣作為繳稅的選擇。企業可以通過在線BTC平臺支付23種不同的稅費,不過個人交稅暫時不能選擇這種服務。

Other U.S. states have tried to pass bills that would allow taxes to be paid using cryptocurrency. However, these bills have been stopped in their tracks by state lawmakers.

美國其他州正在努力允許使用數字貨幣交稅,不過這些提案都遭到州立法者的否決。
