Bitcoin regulation: a chat with Felipe Ojeda

Charlie Taylor

Felipe Ojeda is a lawyer, host of the Sociedade Alternativa Libertária Podcast and president of the OAB São Paulo's Cryptocurrency Commission. It is with him that we will talk this Friday (16th) at Conexão Satoshi about a possible regulation of Bitcoin, the legal issue of financial pyramids in Brazil and other issues. Last year, the Brazilian Association of Cryptoeconomics (ABCripto) in partnership with some of the largest exchanges in the national market, signed a Self-Regulatory Code in favor of legal certainty in the sector. And in 2022, as promised by federal deputy Áureo Ribeiro, we will be able to see a “libertarian regulation” of cryptocurrencies in Brazil. But what will really be the legal advance of this sector, still so new? Is it possible to regulate a decentralized technology? The Central Bank of Russia, for example, has already admitted resistance to Bitcoin's censorship by saying that "it is not possible to prevent". Some, however, insist that a clearer regulation of the sector's own companies would inhibit the operation of financial pyramids and others related scams that have already hurt Brazilians in millions of reais like Unick Forex. Do you have an opinion on the subject?
