  1. Cryptocurrencies can become units of account only if there is a friendly and conducive regulatory environment.” It is not true. What they are referring is “accounting” in the legal terms; this require an accepting regulatory environment for sure. But people don’t do accounting just to please the government, they do it for economic planning. Economic planning is the most important thing; individuals and companies will use whatever tool at their disposal to economically plan in the most effective and efficient way possible. E.G. Venezuelans don’t plan in Bolivares, they plan in €, $, BTC, BCH, eggs and flour. Even if the government tell them to plan in bolivares or else… they will just plan in bolivares on the surface and will plan in what they prefer under the surface.
