Is Bitcoin Being Captured?
Does government regulation of Anti Money Laundering (AML) present a way for governments to capture Bitcoin? Matt Odell, co-host of Tales From The Crypt podcast, Alex Gladstein of Human Rights Foundation, and Rafael Yakobi of The Crypto Lawyers join Stephan Livera to discuss this issue.
Financial Action Task Force (FAFT) is going after increasingly stricter regulations, forcing most centralized Bitcoin businesses to look for ways to collaborate with the "Travel Rule." What implications does this rule have for Bitcoin privacy and will it eventually be captured by the governments, or will Bitcoin capture the governments first?
