AMERICA UNCOVERED

A Cryptocurrency Crackdown Is Coming

Cybercriminals use cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and Bitcoin to move money anonymously and under the radar of law enforcement. In order to stop cybercrime, governments want to change that. But will it come at the expense of privacy and free speech? Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has targeted the funding sources of protesters joining the "Freedom Convoy," which started as truckers protesting his national vaccine mandates. If governments can get data on crypto users, will this be used to silence dissent? Would a cryptocurrency crackdown be used for non-criminal activity? We talk about that and more in this episode of America Uncovered.
