As Bitcoin crashes, let's remember that the R candidate for WA State Senate helped deregulate it

Jinyoung Lee Englund played a major role as spokesperson for the Bitcoin Foundation. Per https://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/bitcoin-foundation-the-little-known-group-lobbying-for-virtual-money/article16293082/, lots of gems, including:
"Ms. Englund, who previously worked on Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign ... met with members of Congress, the Department of Justice and central bankers, seeking to assuage their concerns about the growing popularity of bitcoin. Her briefings appear to have helped. In November, Senate hearings into potential regulation of the currency offered a surprisingly friendly appraisal of bitcoin’s potential and the Department of Justice announced that virtual currencies “offer legitimate financial services,” helping to send the price of bitcoin to new highs."
"Ms. Englund grows uneasy when discussing the investment aspect of bitcoin. “Bitcoin is trading like an early stage tech stock,” she said. “Right now, it’s volatile … eventually, it will even out.”
“Yeah, investors and entrepreneurs are going to make a ton of money,” Ms. Englund says. “But the real goal of bitcoin is financial inclusion for the poor. Not just Africa. We’re talking about Americans who can’t get banking because they are too poor.”
Sure.

The Future of Bitcoin - Deciphering "2016"

"Jinyoung Lee Englund, a spokeswoman for the Bitcoin Foundation, a Washington-based nonprofit that promotes bitcoin, said she thinks the currencies can coexist in the same way investors use more than one commodity as a store of value. 'If bitcoin is like gold, litecoin is like silver,' she said.
Mr. Thomas, who mined his digital coins using his computer, says many more currencies will gain value. He is confident his pile, which he said is now worth about 8 bitcoins, or about $4,384, will be worth more than $10 million by next November.
"There have been so many times where in the past, I've been right at the right spot and unwilling to take the big risk, and as a result I look back and say, 'Why didn't I do that?' " he said.
If Thomas is right then we are looking at a new wave of wealthy investors by the end of 2014. Due to the production of ASIC equipment and the abundance of companies jumping on board to accept Bitcoins, we can probably expect each Bitcoin to skyrocket between $750,000 and $1,000,000 before it is all over. Most businesses, however will be using fractions of Bitcoins and even Litecoins for smaller businesses like restaurants. As we press into 2016, we can already see the formation of the new digital economy."
