Abstract

As regulators increased actions against the e-gold currency because it helped criminal activities run more smoothly, a new cryptocurrency named bitcoin came alive. Martin C. W. Walker writes that the timeline of the e-gold prosecution and birth of bitcoin seems more than coincidental. He says that decentralisation, the model for avoiding accountability, has been used over and over again to avoid regulation.
