Bitcoin: WannaCry’s Curse or Blessing? (Video: Oneconsult Talk)

Bitcoin is a digital currency which allows for pseudonymous transactions while not being regulated by banks or any other central entities – properties which make it popular among honest users and cyber-criminals alike. In fact, Bitcoin has been involved in an extensive list of crimes, such as money laundering and the recent WannaCry ransomware attack. However, contrary to many people’s beliefs, Bitcoin is not anonymous.
