US Representative Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), Member of the Financial Services Committee, said in an interview with the CNBC Squawk Box that "there is no way to kill bitcoin".
According to McHenry & # 39; ego, regulators do not have the option of killing an open spread book. However, he believes that new iterations of cryptocurrencies, those that mimic bitcoins and are not fully open or decentralized, can be closed.
"You can kill something that is not a real open scattered book," said McHenry, referring to Libra on Facebook. He believes that if the token is "a commodity or security, depending on how it will be sold and used, these are different elements."
