Today, several Russian agents were indicted for meddling with the 2016 election using mainly Bitcoin as the means to purchase servers and e-mail lists, as well as personal information of American voters. The markets have not had a huge reaction to this and hopefully it won’t as it was finally showing some signs of recovery. But this does present more challenges to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency overall as anonymous and hard to track transactions give a way for foreign agents to interfere with our political process and there is no guarantee that they will not do so in future elections. This is a development that we should all watch to see what happens. Trump has also made a task force to investigate cryptocurrency crimes.
