Thank you for this great article that provokes a fertile controversy. This article has one hidden assumption in it: the fact that cryptos have to come from the blockchain. Take a look at holochain for example (http://holochain.org), and read the many Medium articles about it (https://medium.com/holochain), you will see that cryptos can operate from a very different technology that doesn’t have the limitations of the blockchain (mining, energy waste), and that we can make totally KYC and AML compliant. Cryptos do not have by design a flaw with KYC and AML. It only depends on the rules of the game we design around cryptos.
