    SLP196 Is Bitcoin Being Captured? With Matt Odell, Alex Gladstein & Rafael Yakobi

    SLP196 Is Bitcoin Being Captured? With Matt Odell, Alex Gladstein & Rafael Yakobi

    Does government regulation of AML (Anti Money Laundering) represent a  new way for governments to capture Bitcoin? FATF (Financial Action Task  Force) is driving stricter regulations, and it now appears that large  Bitcoin businesses are looking for ways to collaborate with the “Travel  Rule”. What are the implications of this for Bitcoin privacy? Will  Bitcoin be captured by governments, or will Bitcoin capture governments?
