On June 15, New York Post columnist John Crudele issued a response to the view that "Bitcoin should be regulated by the Gambling Commission." He wrote: "I disagree with the view that Bitcoin and other online currencies should be regulated by the Gambling Commission. This is an insult to gamblers. The Gambling Commission regulates honest games. Bitcoin is dishonest. People manipulate prices for their own benefit. At the moment, the price will plummet like last year for one reason, that is, the manipulator has lost control of the market. But those who know what is going to happen will leave before the economy collapses."
