    The question I hope everyone will soon ask:If the government can just print money, why do we pay taxes at all?Going down that rabbit hole will eventually lead them to #Bitcoin

  • From danheld:

    One of the most mispriced assets in the world right now is Bitcoin.

In terms of news links for Bitcoin here’s one to try:

Section 4.5.1 of the May 2019 FinCEN guidance states that “providers of anonymizing services” — such as custodial mixers — are money transmitters under FinCEN regulations….Anyone who provides anonymizing services by “accepting value from a customer and transmitting the same or another type of value to the recipient, in a way designed to mask the identity of the transmittor, is a money transmitter under FinCEN regulations.” Helix operated as a custodial mixer, where users’ coins were allegedly sent to Harmon’s control and swapped, then different coins were sent back to the user or to a predetermined destination….Then he mixed the bitcoin and sent it to himself again, at DropBit (another layering transaction), and from there, a regular user could unknowingly get the tainted bitcoin, and risk future issues with traditional on- and off-ramps for the reasons outlined above. The other federal charge complication is that most money laundering cases also involve unregistered money services business activity, meaning, the company didn’t register with FinCEN before setting up their dark web drug website….The DC money transmitter law has never been modified to include bitcoin and never been tested against bitcoin….We view CoinJoin as being no different than other standard privacy practices in Bitcoin, such as not reusing bitcoin addresses….Rafael and I have spent years learning the intricacies of money transmission and money laundering laws, and we have each helped many Bitcoin companies navigate these regulations.
