OFAC just settled an enforcement action with @BitGo for apparently failing to prevent users in Crimea, Cuba, Iran, Sudan, & Syria from using its service. Lots to say here, but first, it turns out Treasury *doesn't* need more KYC to enforce sanctions laws. home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/…

Don't sleep on the team at Suredbits and the work they're doing on DLCs. If you do, you will miss out on the fact that people are bringing products to market on top of Bitcoin that were previously thought to be impossible and destined for altcoin chains. tftc.io/martys-bent/is…

Privacy > KYC The long-term reform is to end KYC completely. End financial surveillance. Stop forcing companies to collect hackable jackpots of KYC data. Better one guilty man go free than millions of innocents get hacked. Because they will get hacked, as Treasury itself was.

Particularly egregious is a pt @lex_node points out. Essentially, the USG wants to take the stance that it can treat crypto as a monetary instrument purely for restrictive policies, but exclude it if it removes their ability to exercise more oversight. twitter.com/lex_node/statu…

Tl;dr exchanges will need to file a CTR when they send funds to a crypto address. No impact on users, no impact on B2C or B2B, but likely increased surveillance of the Bitcoin network by the govt. Good scoop by the Block to actually get details on the proposal.
