The New York Times’ Matthew Rosenberg tells us about the existence of a “long list of examples of how the United States, largely because of poor oversight and loose financial controls, has sometimes inadvertently financed the very militants it is fighting.” The CIA clearly doesn’t have sufficient control of its own funds. How is this relevant to the digital currency revolution?
The United States clearly intends to play a leading role in international money laundering and terrorist financing countermeasures. Many aspects of these rules and policies may also find their way into regional and national regulatory frameworks for cryptocurrency.
I think it’s fair to question U.S. positions on these subjects until they get their own house in better order.
