Cardano creator Charles Hoskinson has warned that the White House’s new crypto proposals threaten Bitcoin. He has warned that these changes won’t go well for Bitcoin and the rest of the market. A new White House Office of Science and Technology report has asked for enhanced measures. These include creating evidence-based environmental standards for the responsible design of digital assets.
Hoskinson said that if these were implemented, Bitcoin would be outrightly banned. The EPA and DoE will start talking to companies about changing how their cryptocurrencies work.
