Yo uncle Sam: I wanna buy my coffee with magic internet money. Leave me alone. I don’t wanna calculate capital gains tax. There is no gain. -with love your niece

Other countries are letting small purchases without calculating capital gains tax. Other let you ignore capital gains when HODLing for over a year. Dear uncle, let's not fall behind others. Land of free ain't so much free if you make it prohibitive for me to buy my coffee with magic internet money. I didn't say anything to you when you stole half of my paycheck because I gracious. I didn't want commotion in the family, but please stop dipping into fruits of my labor. I'm so frustrated I need a beer, but guess what, I have to buy that with cocaine covered green back too.

Guys come on. It took me two minutes. Let’s get this ETF approved. There are nearly 1 Million If us and yet there are a mere 90 comments. If you care about bitcoin’s development please leave a comment. Simple how-to guide in this post

Guys, this is a very important step for bitcoin/cryptocurrency. We all want growth, are you willing to spend two minutes of your time to help do something big? If not for the tech at least do it so your holdings go up in value :-p

For those of you who don’t want to read to figure it out, follow these steps:

1) Send an email to: rule-comments@sec.gov

2) Paste this into the subject line: Release No. 34-83520; File No. SR-CboeBZX-2018-040

3) Send a basic or wordy email about why you think bitcoin/cryptocurrency/Blockchain tech is good for the world. At the very least say, “Please approve this ETF because i believe bitcoin is an important creation and needs to have the chance to grow” or something like that, please don’t quote that verbatim.

Here is a really great comment to model yours off of if you want more things to say:

And finally here is the link to see others comments/how to submit on the official site: https://www.sec.gov/comments/sr-cboebzx-2018-040/cboebzx2018040.htm

From madbanker1, “Seeing as the SEC is mostly concerned about protecting investors, one angle to include in comments is the fact the lack of an ETF does not prevent people from investing in bitcoin, and that without an ETF, retail investors are currently required to take great risk when investing in bitcoin :)”

Similarly, if you want to go the extra mile, read this comment and listen to him.

Dear @bitpay. This week I started setting up my own @BtcpayServer. When I discovered how easy it is, I contacted five vendors and clients I know who currently use your services. They’re going to pay me to help them leave you. I’m sure my story isn’t unique. You are ending now.
