It makes it so much easier for several interested parties.
1) Every transfer automatically has sales tax added - both from the "sellers" location and the "buyers" location, thus doubling tax revenue for states.
2) Every sellers transaction is automatically tracked for the new year-end 1099 reporting requirements. Thus increasing IRS revenue. Up to the seller to find receipts for every transaction to prove the actual profit/loss.
Turning everyone into a business in the eyes of the government for increased tax regulation and auditing data. Allowing instant seizure of any funds whose source can not be tracked.
So we get tax wins for states, tax win for IRS, and tons of work for CPAs. What's not to love?
