Abstract: Anonymous cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are quickly gaining popularity as an electronic, decentralized payment or banking system that hides the identities of its users. There are many legitimate uses for cryptocurrencies, which are easy to trade online and offer nearly as much privacy as cash does in the physical world, but they are also used to buy drugs or other illegal items or services, for tax evasion, illegal gambling, extortion payments, and so forth. This talk will summarize the history and current state of anonymous cryptocurrency, and what the future might bring. What are the technical, policy, and legal challenges that must be addressed? What are the opportunities for new legitimate markets enabled by electronic currencies that provide cash-like benefits for online transactions? How can we ensure protection for law-abiding consumers and corporations and at the same time stop criminal and fraudulent activity?
