Bitcoin is a permissionless ledger. In plain English, that means you don’t need to ask anyone’s damn permission to use it. There are no terms and conditions to read, no checkbox to tick, and no forms to sign before you can send or receive bitcoin. But if some people had their way, pseudonymous cryptocurrencies, as well as anonymous coins like monero, would only be used with the government’s permission. These people are wrong. So wrong it hurts.
