Hey peeps, GB here. With all the tomfoolery going on in the cryptosphere, we have had a bit of a black eye lately. 5 major arrests of prominent bitcoin criminals, a few sporadic but massive heists, and the takedown of two serious dark markets. We even had a model get kidnapped for a bitcoin ransom, they were actually going to attempt to auction the poor lass off on the dark market  Sad

to me, it seems the enforcement efforts have ramped up as of late. Our AG, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions the Third, Republican, has vowed to crack down on illicit markets and cyber crime, specifically crypto it seems:

Quote from: Jeff Sessions
And drug addiction is causing more and more crime and violence in communities across our country. And while law enforcement, first responders, and medical professionals across this country have been doing their part to stop this crisis from growing, drug traffickers and others have chosen to exploit this epidemic of addiction.
And today, some of the most prolific drug suppliers use what’s called the dark web —which is a collection of hidden websites that you can only access if you mask your identity and your location. And it’s called dark not just because these sites are intentionally hidden. It’s also dark because of what’s sold on many of them: illegal weapons, stolen identities, child pornography and large amounts of deadly drugs.
Today the Department of Justice announces the takedown of the dark web market AlphaBay. This is the largest dark net marketplace takedown in history.

So, do you think this administration will take a harder line with crypto in general? These investigations dont seem new; its odd to me they are wrapping every thing up so quickly Wink
