Money Laundering and the Blockchain

Date: November 08, 2017 19:00 - 21:00
Location: Garage Society, 19/F, 199 Queen’s Road Central, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Speaker:

Leonhard Weese

Money laundering and terrorism financing are taboo topics rarely disseminated in public discourse or the press. Similar to ‘national security’, these terms are too often used to manipulate discussions to benefit those with power or authority. One of the most curious aspects of Anti-money laundering training is that it forbids you to openly speak about the topic.

Leo is lucky not to sit on Dionysius’ throne of high finance under which the Damocles sword of money laundering hangs. He can speak freely and explain what money laundering is defined and regulated and go through some case studies and mental exercises around how to launder a billion dollars.
