Juan Zarate will be moderating a National Security Institute panel, “Crypto and National Security: Finding Solutions to Illicit Finance Challenges.” Part of the institute’s year-long series on crypto, the virtual event will focus on exploring key policy questions at the intersection of crypto and illicit finance. The panelists will discuss these themes and questions:
- The aftermath of the Tornado Cash sanctions and what they mean for industry, as well as future sanction determinations by OFAC
- The future role of sanctions as a tool for statecraft in an era of digital money
- The underlying friction between Bank Secrecy Act compliance and crypto’s ethos of decentralization
- How should the U.S. regulate unhosted wallets?
