Keep in mind that Chaum may be walking east while you're pointing out
that he's making no northward progress.

Just because something is a cryptocurrency does not imply that the
threat model it is designed to protect against is government intervention.

The threat model he wants to defend against may in fact be money
launderers, fraudsters, and tax cheats, and making a cryptocurrency that
protects privacy in the routine case while being useless for hiding
those crimes from the FBI may in fact be a primary goal.

Let him explain what threat model he intends to defend against, before
you decide that he's failing to defend against it.
