>> Had a chat with a high ranking public tax official last week who said that the age of secret offshore bank accounts is over

....and what prompted the conversation : ) ?

The problem is that crypto can be good for a % of your illegal money, since it's relatively unproven. Any exchange that doesn't share the info will be taken down ala BTC-E (my bet is that IRS /FBI has their client list and transaction history already) so it's very very hard to spend /cash out.

If it gets our hand, of course then govts we'll declare war on cryptocurrencies
