CFTC Commissioner: Market Manipulation Could Shape Bitcoin ...

I compiled a the contact information for each of the regulators that Sen Joe Manchin has written to, asking them to ban bitcoin. Make your voice heard NOW before it's too late!

I believe that there is a small window for all of us to take action and make it known that bitcoin is not the playground of money launderers and thieves that Senator Manchin unfortunately has portrayed it as. If the Winklevoss Twins come across this by some strange chance, they might be able to arrange meetings with these people and lobby our cause (I'm sure they already have with some of them to some extent in the push to get their ETF launched). Same goes for everyone who owns a bitcoin business. This is extremely important. We can't let innovation be stifled in america when our economy needs it most. Take action now!
For Senator Manchin himself: http://www.manchin.senate.gov/contact_form.cfm West Virginia Office: 304-342-5855 D.C. Office: 202-224-3954 press office: 202-228-1810
Contact Secretary Lew by phone or mail at: Phone: 1-202-622-2000 Fax: 1-202-622-6415 Department of the Treasury Attention: Secretary Jacob J. Lew 1500 Pennsylvania Ave. NW Washington DC 20220
For Chairwoman White, I found this email address: [email protected]
For Chairman Gruenberg, I found the contact of people in his press office:CONTACT: David Barr, 202-898-6992, [email protected] [Note: RSVP for live coverage to Greg Hernandez at 202-898-6984, 202-340-4922 or [email protected].]
I couldn't find a way to contact Commissioner Curry: (I think this is him: http://www.occ.gov/about/who-we-are/comptroller-of-the-currency/bio-thomas-curry.html )
I couldn't find a way to contact Acting Chairman Wetjen either: http://.cftc.gov/About/Commissioners/MarkWetjen/index.htm
I couldn't find a way other than this to contact Chairwoman Yellen: https://twitter.com/federalreserve
These are the people heading up the Federal Reserve, the SEC, the FDIC, and the commodities futures trading commission. If anyone has better luck than me in finding their public contact details (NOT PRIVATE), I'll edit the post. They need to hear about how stifling innovation will only put America behind the rest of the world. They need to hear about the misinformation in the Senator's letter. They need to consider this fact from another redditor: u/jratcliff63367 9 points 3 hours ago So, Senator Manchin, are you also going to call for a ban on Dogecoin, Litecoin, World of Warcraft Gold points, Amazon coins, iCoins, frequent flyer miles, and all other forms of digital value transfer? How about gold and silver too while you are at it? I guess you forgot, this is supposed to be a free country. I am legally allowed to go to Las Vegas and gamble, I am legally allowed to buy and sell stocks, bonds, and commodities and trade them. How dare you suggest that digital value transfer should be made illegal. This is anti-american, anti-freedom, and just plain absurd!
