posted 24 days ago
According a report by the European Union’s law enforcement agency, “privacy-enhanced wallet services using coinjoin concepts (for example, Wasabi and Samurai wallets) have emerged as a top threat in addition to well established centralized mixers.”

Europol's report also included decentralized marketplace protocols as a “high priority threat… Criminals have started to use other privacy-focused, decentralized marketplace platforms, such as OpenBazaar and Particl.io to sell their illegal goods,” the report says.
