Just wanted to let you all know that we've released a discussion draft of a forthcoming law review article I've written with my colleague Andrea Castillo and Houman Shadab (New York Law School) on Bitcoin financial regulation. 

We are very much interested in comments and corrections. This is a complicated issue area, both technically and legally, and we know there is likely a lot we can improve. So please send me any comments or corrections you might have.

We recently completed a survey among US Internet users using the Google Consumer Survey platform. This should provide you with some measurement of the current knowledge on and adoption of Bitcoin (Q1, Q3 and Q7). 

It also provides some analysis of how the public perceives bitcoin currently. I believe the data can be used to underline the point that the public have a reasonable approach to bitcoin and it is not necessary to rush into legislation. Google Consumer Survey data are projectable to the US Internet population and the platform was among the best at predicting voting intention in the most recent presidential election.  The full report includes methodological information.  Primer Research maintains membership in ESOMAR, the leading global marketing research association, and follows their code of conduct.

Visit our blog for further details and the full report: http://www.v-primer.com/blog/
