Cryptocurrency investing has taken the country by storm in recent months. With unprecedented volatility and security problems, crypto is both loved and hated. The underlying Blockchain Technology has proven use-cases, but many still see cryptocurrencies as an asset class to invest in.

From a security point of view, cryptos give massive anonymity to perform illicit transactions - Is the crypto that you are using tainted? As all transactions are publicly listed in an open ledger database, how do we differentiate between clean crypto and dirty crypto? How to ensure that the Bitcoin you are buying was not stolen in the first place, or worse, was not part of a money-laundering activity?
