    It's a question that governments and those outside the space have so it's fair to take a look and this gave a Fair picture. Don't be afraid of seeing what others think that matter. So I found the video cutting-edge and informative. That said, I'm no expert, but my opinion is that trying to over-regulate something because it can be misused would be like trying to eliminate all cash because we don't know how you're spending it. Freedom will always have the ability for some to harm. You always want to try to stop them and act against them, but you have to be careful to not shut everyone down because of a few bad ones. That's true for all laws and all security situations. Those actions should only be taken so that there is more freedom to do, to think, to conduct business, and to actively partake of life. The greater good leans on the side of more freedom with restrictions only to help that occur. It made me happy to hear that the efforts to raise money failed and they were able to track them down. But even if that had failed, you don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. That doesn't mean I know what the answer exactly should be, but let's lean toward that side.

  8. Ridiculous. "Bad Actor" depends on the act, not the privacy of the currency.
    You gonna stop window tinting because it creates privacy in cars?
    "Bad actors" of all kinds drive around in blackened-out limos. Oh no !!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
    Ban tinting now! – before it gets out of hand! ๐Ÿ—ฝ๐Ÿ—ฝ๐Ÿ—ฝ
    – and shades too, damn it! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž If you have nothing to hide why use them? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  14. Avatar dubstep1994 says:

    2:45 "likely" why not just say " he hope " "we think" "we made up founded" – Likely is an empty claim. Useless.

  15. Avatar dubstep1994 says:

    0:39 are you fucking joking? They are not locked out…only if they say officially that they are terrorists lol. But they are financed by the top of the world so it does no matter. They will have an unending cash flow as long as there is more money in wars than peace.

  16. Avatar dubstep1994 says:

    0:20 But fiat is still the nr.1 black market, money laundering, terrorism finansing currency in the world. Together with the USA as always…even giving the terrorists weapons…and money through the CIA like they did with Osama Binladen ( the CIA agent )

    The dollar has been used in more crimes than probably any other currency known to man. I don't want to hear it.

  25. Avatar Crypto Corda says:

    When the telephone was invented it was really a problem, all of a sudden criminals could organize themselves and their actions all over the country. We probably should have banned it right? The fact that you made this video, really makes all of us in crypto look at you with disgust, thanks for showing what you are really about coin-telegraph.

  26. This kinda propaganda is old school, from 60'-70' :)))))

  27. Avatar Adam Sarwar says:

    This is dumb, especially considering that our governments are the largest terrorist organizations in the planet and they print money to enslave people. They even sell drugs to fund their black ops. ๐Ÿ’

  28. Avatar Haji says:

    The only terrorist organization is the USA …

  29. is deep state paying you for such BS vid ??

  30. โ€œThe Industry,โ€ โ€œTerrorists,โ€ one in the same!๐Ÿ™„ If you know someone is a Terrorist, and there in lots of situations they could die, donโ€™t give them crypto, give them fiat๐Ÿ˜‰ If the fiat is gone, theyโ€™ll just print more, if the Terrorist dies with bitcoin, THAT COULD BE LOST FOREVER!!! DONโ€™T DO IT!!!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. First you're an idiot. Second, if it's used for crime means it is good. Try to pay a criminal with fake money. Probably won't work. Loser.
