Today we got good and bad news for you, the first one will be bad.
According to the Bloomberg, there are more than 130 ongoing cases related to cryptocurrencies run by the FBI.
During the Crypto Evolved conference in New York, Kyle Armstrong the supervisory special agent confirmed that right now the small amount of the bureau are crypto-related cases. However, the agency has noticed an increase in illegal activities in which people use cryptos as a payment method.
“The opioid epidemic, in particular, has come into focus at the FBI as the “dark web” enables a surge in drug abuse. Illegal online marketplaces are where 10 percent of global drug users make their purchases.”
However, during his speech, Armstrong said that the FBI had a neutral view to cryptocurrencies and they have pros and cons.
First FuturoCoin ATM
One of the founders said that in the beginning, there would be one place in a cafe, but they already have 100 more machines. They want to place them all around the world. For now, we know that ATM will handle FuturoCoins and other cryptocurrencies (our guess is Bitcoin of course).
The ATM will work two-way, which means that you will be able to buy cryptocurrencies with fiats and withdraw your cryptos.
They do not want to focus only on regular cryptocurrency traders. They know that sometimes it is hard to understand how everything works; that is why the founders promised that ATMs would be as easy as possible to use and they additionally will create a video to show how you can do it by yourself.
