Is anyone worried about potential future regulation by the government (US specifically)? It seems inevitible that there will be government intervention at some point. Will regulations severely impact Bitcoin's value if/when that time comes?

I'm still rather new in the Bitcoin "scene", but I feel that I have a solid enough grasp about how it operates, that I feel comfortable making cautious investments into it's future. However, it seems inevitable - at least to me - that The US Government (along with other governments) will begin to intervene and impose regulations on BTC. How I envision that to specifically look in my mind is somewhat spotty, mainly because of the decentralised nature of Bitcoin and blockchain technology. So, I guess one of my questions is: in what possible ways could an entity like the US Govt actually impose upon the freedom of Bitcoin? And the other question I have is, will the value of Bitcoin tank to unrecoverable levels should sanctions on BTC be levied by the Govt? Thanks

States like NY should not be allowed to regulate bitcoin with "licenses" because bitcoin is inherently national and international trade which is the exclusive authority of the US government in the USA.

Would it be in the interest of the US government for Bitcoin to reach $1mil+, since they own the second largest amount of Bitcoin in the world? Could this deter regulation?

I'm just thinking that since the US government has over 100k Bitcoins they have nabbed from silk road dealers, they would theoretically want Bitcoin to reach staggering heights, right? This could help the US economy greatly. Is this a good argument as to why they wouldn't want to regulate it and drive the price down?

How the US government will regulate Bitcoin - just turn the miners into 'financial institutions'

This article appeared a couple of weeks ago. It describes how the "Building America's Trust Act" (S. 1757) would change the definition of a 'financial institution' in the U.S. Code (the compendium of Federal laws) to read:
(2) ‘‘financial institution’’ means—.....(K) an issuer, redeemer, or cashier of travelers’ checks, checks, money orders, prepaid access devices, digital currencies, or other similar instruments;"
It seems like this would turn every US miner and probably any US-based organization creating a digital currency into 'financial institutions' who would have to comply with all the related laws. It's also not clear whether 'other similar instruments' would include tokens, and how a distinction would be made as to which were securities and which weren't.
For those who want to look this up, here are links to: The text of S.1757. Scroll down to section 409(A)(1)(A) on page 250; and Section 5312(a)(2)(k) of the U.S.C.
You can follow the progress of S.1757 here.
This could be why Dimon and Bernanke think Bitcoin will end badly.
Sorry if this is a bit of a repost, but I think it deserves more attention.

Government intervention/regulation/interference, even opposition against bitcoin are GOOD SIGNS. It means they are SCARED of bitcoin. They see they are slowly losing control, and they are trying to delay the inevitable. This should encourage us more than anything IMO. /r/btc
