Money Laundering News
Every government in the world is afraid of the relative anonymity of virtual money. The explanation of that is that a government’s financial organs can’t find a viable path to minimize the risks related to the financing of terrorism and cryptocurrency money laundering. But the truth is that Bitcoin money laundering is not widespread.

Therefore, cryptocurrency money laundering is a really complex process where even absolute anonymity is not a key to success.
