Bitcoin virtual address can only need to transfer, this feature will be some criminals use, such as the black market, dark net transactions, there are 2 trillion states for money laundering the United Nations Office on drugs and crime crime statistics every year, accounting for about 5% of world GDP, which is a large part of the use of bitcoin; The last is the consensus of value .

Bitcoin regulation

Regulation of digital currency. Every coin has two side, and other digital currency bitcoin certainly has its good side, for example, to the center of the transaction point, but it also has many defects, these defects include: first, the digital currency may not be subject to capital controls, capital controls is a country promulgated laws or regulations and in order to control the inflow or outflow of capital in the country. By setting restrictions on banks and investment behavior, state can monitor capital flows. In some cases, digital currency can be an easy job to do around the capital controls, buy a digital currency in the domestic currency in foreign exchange, and thus not subject to government regulation. Article two, digital currency can be used for the black market, dark network transactions, such as the famous “silk road”. Third, in 2017, 90% of the ICO (Initial Coin Offering) project is a project of air, without any real value.

The virtual currency supervision measures, divided into threecategories:

First, some of the country’s more stringent measures For example, China: auction trading virtual currency convertibility of the RMB is closed, financial institutions and payment service institutions can not participate in bitcoin transactions, although the prohibition of virtual currency transactions, but Chinese attitude to block chain technology is open, in May 2018 to set up the blockchain Industrial Park in Hangzhou, 5 Yuegong Ministry issued the “2018 China block chain industry white paper”, affirmed the application block chain technology in the financial and real sectors for the ICO, the Ministry of the white paper is still held a negative attitude and warning. Russia; Jordan: the central bank banned banks and financial companies involved in bitcoin and other encryption currency transactions.

Second, some countries adopt certain restrictions on virtual currency For example, the United States,: the implementation of license management, but it is difficult to apply for licences; South Korea: the prohibition of anonymous bank account transactions, aimed at combating money laundering and other criminal activities, minor investors and foreigners to prohibit the establishment of digital currency accounts in Korea and Japan; market analysis: according to the CryptoCompare data, the yen bitcoin transactions accounted for more than all digital currency day trading volume 60%. 6 month 2018 years 22 days, Japan’s financial regulator ordered a number of encryption currency exchange rectification anti money laundering measures.

Thirdly, some countries adopt the virtual currency to completely open attitude Singapore, for example, early in the 2016 years, the monetary authority of Singapore launched the famous “sandbox (Sandbox) mechanism, namely” in the pre filing cases and the current laws and regulations are allowed to engage in business conflict; and even after the official termination of business, will not pursue legal responsibilities. A “sandbox” system to block chain enterprise has obtained the huge innovation space, also make Singapore a Asian countries to circumvent national policies and went overseas for ICO, also let Singapore become Asia on ICO most friendly countries, the China most ICO projects are issued in singapore.

The price of bitcoin 2010 for $0.003, to 2017 years 12 months 18 days, the price of bitcoin for $18674, bitcoin prices soared after millions of times, 12 month 18 day, bitcoin prices fell, fell $5800 a month 7 2018 2017, at the end of the year is when all ICO frequently issued, with bitcoin prices and other regulatory measures, many ICO disillusioned. Bitcoin spike also shows that bitcoin is a process from the initial to gradually rational madness. Blockchain this disruptive technology, countries are optimistic, but in the technology development process will inevitably encounter a variety of situations, some of the block chain development process to the early development of the Internet, in early twenty-first Century, the Internet also experienced a process of crazy bubble. What time will the blockchain what successful landing of the project? I believe that with the development of technology will change rapidly, much faster than the internet.
