[9:21pm] Joe: Basicly the fed is taking a step to turn off people's money at will.
[9:22pm] jokeefe: That could happen.
[9:22pm] Joe: Orwellian times at it's best.
[9:22pm] jokeefe: That is from March. Any update since then or are they still in the exploration stage.
[9:22pm] Joe: Well, they can already freeze bank accounts.
[9:23pm] Joe: There is an actual bill now but I forget which one atm.
[9:24pm] Joe: But if memory serves correctly it's the fed trying to end crypto and the dollar in one move.
[9:24pm] Joe: I have to re-read it a bit slower.
[9:25pm] jokeefe: I thought they need a court order to freeze a bank account, but anything that makes it easier
[9:25pm] jokeefe: ...
