Money as software
I think that it is difficult for regulators to fully understand the long-term implications of programmable money. As such, a wait-and-see type of approach to this is needed.

Regulators are paying attention to the positives and the negatives. While virtual currencies offer enormous upside, there are consumer protections to keep in mind with this new technology.
