AML, or Anti-Money Laundering, compliance is part of orchestrated efforts to make it more difficult for individuals who earn money through illegal methods to obscure the source of that money. This not to be missed special podcast with two AML professionals, Amber Scott of Outlier and Joe Ciccolo of BitAML, helps shine a light on an area of cryptospace that is both crucial and not well understood by many people.
Amber and Joe discuss the history of AML and KYC (Know Your Customer) in cryptospace, with particular regards to Silk Road, an online marketplace where many of the items being sold were illegal in nature, and Bitcoin was used as the main payment rail.
They also discuss the difference in the regulatory climate between the United States and Canada, the need for education and a basic understanding of the risks involved in cryptospace, how regulation is changing the ICO landscape, the impact that fear has on the space, and more.
