to bypass regulation (what Vitalik calls “censorship” as a result of it sounds extra hip),
Flawed. OFAC forbids interplay with addresses, it was by no means demanded that blocks with transactions to/from Twister Money can’t be produced.
It’s a self-censorship simply because no one is aware of what the fuck OFAC is doing/desires.
And OFAC would not concern me as a European consumer. So exclucing TC transactions from block manufacturing is clearly censorship.
How would you prefer it if Russia mentioned interacting with contract X is forbidden after which Flashbots would additionally not embrace transactions to/from X in blocks?!
If we let each authorities make sanctions to Ethereum, there might be no Ethereum any extra as a result of no transactioms might be accomplished…
