“I don’t think Bitcoin is widely used as a transaction mechanism. I’m afraid it’s often used for illegal financing. It’s an extremely inefficient way of processing transactions, and the amount of energy consumed in making these transactions is surprising. It’s a highly speculative asset. I think people are aware that it can be extremely volatile. I am concerned about the potential losses investors may suffer. “
