Navigating the Frontier of Crypto Regulation

In the United States, obstruction of privacy has regularly been used as a way to observe citizens by government agencies.

In their infancy, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies were unregulated.

Interest in moderating the space has exploded in the last two years, as lawmakers have realized the space is messy and rules must be set in place. We’ve spent several months closely watching the ensuing attempts at regulating the space.  We provide an overview of crypto regulation and its implications.
