Despite Weak Links with ISIS, Eurozone Pushes for Crackdown on Bitcoin
The announcement came after German state-run news outlet Deutsche Welle (DW) reported in September that a Bitcoin address, allegedly linked to ISIS supporters, contained $3 million in Bitcoin.
Sanders started with a Bitcoin address allegedly belonging to ISIS, provided to him by the Anonymous splinter group Ghost Security Group (GSG).
Sanders did not disclose the Bitcoin address allegedly containing the $3 million in funds, nor the address of the original account.
This is hardly the first time that public fear has been stoked about ISIS using Bitcoin to fund itself.
What there has been instead is a lot of talk about ISIS allegedly using Bitcoin, from ISIS acolytes and EU analysts alike, but with little to show.
