- Ex-Coinbase CTO Balaji Srinivasan recently spoke about Operation Choke Point 2.0 on Twitter.
- Srinivasan stated that there is a coordinated assault on Bitcoin.
- The statement comes a few days after his $1 million BTC price bet.
Balaji Srinivasan, the former CTO of Coinbase, an angel investor, and a tech founder, recently took to his Twitter account to speak about Operation Choke Point 2.0. He shared a summary of Operation Choke Point 2.0 by Cooper & Kirk, a law firm that went against the FDIC, OCC, and the FED for the first operation.
Balaji stated that it is hard to deny the fact that there is a coordinated assault on Bitcoin. However, he stated that freedom will push back at the national and state level. He was recently all over the headlines for his $1 million bet on Bitcoin in 90 days. Balaji’s statement received backlash on the one hand, and was a hint of positivity and hope for the believers on the other.
According to Cooper & Kirk, a litigation boutique, there is evidence to suggest that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Federal Reserve Board (FRB), and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) are engaged in a covert financial campaign against the cryptocurrency industry.
Cooper & Kirk believe that the sudden collapse of cryptocurrency-friendly banks, the debanking of cryptocurrency businesses, and the tighter scrutiny of the cryptocurrency realm are not random events and is a coordinated attack against the crypto industry.
David H. Thompson, a Cooper & Kirk attorney states:
It looks like that time has come, and crypto is now the industry with a target on its back. Congress must once again hold the federal banking regulators to account and ensure that this Operation Choke Point 2.0 is exposed and brought to an immediate halt.
Moreover, Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange, has also come under the radar as it faces a lawsuit from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) for allegedly violating regulations. A recent spree of tightened scrutiny has raised the question of the rise of “Operation Choke Point 2.0.”
