You’ve most likely heard of newest Financial Action Task Force guidelines from this past summer which include new anti-money-laundering standards as well as the Travel Rule. It seems the crypto industry is sweating and gnashing its collective teeth trying to figure out the next move. The deadline for compliance is June 2020 and time is quickly ticking away.

No one is really explaining the whole story about the FATF guidelines and the Travel Rule and countries are still trying to sort out the compliance and regulation concerns.

That’s why we are excited to welcome David Carlisle, a former US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence member who is now leading the education effort around regulations at Elliptic.

Then you’ll hear from John Wolff with RAKUN. RAKUN is an entertainment platform utilizing blockchain to connect to the gaming world while deriving real world value from "play". Think Crypto Kitties with pigs that race.

Do your laundry, but make sure there isn’t money left in your pants because this is an anti-money laundering episode, peppered with a good amount of fun and games.

This is episode #336 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
