Blog post waarin ik een recente witwaszaak doorloop, met focus op wat tegenwoordig telt als bewijs voor het bezit / gebruik van bepaalde bitcoin adressen.

Helaas wordt nog steeds cluster analyse gebruikt en blijft het lastig om rechters uit te leggen wat het probleem daarmee is:

Just got locked out of Twitter ... again ... because of this tweet, and so was @exiledsurfer for giving me a heads up on the article.

Little known secret: @ToneVays doesn't only talk about price! :-) This Bitcoin Law Review episode is really interesting:
