If only we had a regulated market...

For those of you who pine for the government's approval for you to transact with other adults, here's an example of why regulated markets are shit:
That is the link provided by Interactive Brokers to explain why they are asking if you are someone who, as apparently defined under federal law, "regularly enters into, makes a market in or holds itself out as a dealer in forex or retail commodity transactions."
The link goes to the website for a government agency I have never heard of, created by Congress in 1974, or 36 years B.P.D. (Before Pizza Day).
This agency I've never heard of requires that forex market makers maintain a minimum of $20 million in reserve capital and follow all sorts of intricate rules I don't even have the energy to scan at this moment.
Now, look, I get that a lot of capital sloshes around in financial markets. But if you want to talk about barriers to entry, $20 mil is pretty damn steep. Not to mention the lawyers, lobbyists, and flacks you have to pay to survive all the rules that are keeping you so safe. "Startup" is essentially a laughable concept in this context.
High barriers to entry protect established companies from competition, increasing costs and stifling innovation.
If you ask me, I will gladly take -- in a brand, spanking new, rapidly innovating industry -- the occasional ETH/USD flash crash, DAO hack, or Bitfinexed's "There's a Nightmare In My Closet" blog posts any day over a $20 million ante to sit down at the table.
It should definitely be illegal for Kraken to have a trading engine that shitty, though.
