The founders and CEO of Bitcoin mixing service, Samourai Wallet, were arrested and charged with money laundering and unlicensed money transmitting offences.

🔥 Ray Dalio exits debt money

Ray Dalio discusses the role of money as both a medium of exchange and a store of wealth in his latest article. Highlighting that most global currencies like the dollar and euro are debt. In times of financial instability, non-debt assets like gold and cryptocurrencies provide more security.

You know we’re spiralling when Ray Dalio tells you to buy "non-debt" money. Potentially a good bit of content for introducing someone to Bitcoin.
