The government has announced its intention to apply anti-money laundering regulation to digital currency exchanges in the UK. It is hoped that regulation will not only prevent criminal use of digital currencies, such as Bitcoin, but support innovation.

Well I hope that's just not the excuse they use to throttle it under the guise of 'safety'.
