Bitcoin needs bank-grade regulation, says Pompeo

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has spelt out the need for Bitcoin to be highly regulated. Pompeo stated that Bitcoin posed a money laundering threat which can facilitate terror activity. Pompeo’s views echo those of US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who views BTC as a tool used to launder money much more in comparison with fiat currency.
