Fast Company: THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN BITCOIN ISN’T A CRIMINAL
Writer Mark Chafkin thinks that federal prosecutor Preet Bharara can clean up Bitcoin.
While Chafkin’s Fast Company article gets big points for quality and content, it fails to provide substantial criticism of Bharara. Chafkin does a disservice by worshipping the lawman. Bharara suffers from his own very obvious vice: political corruption that is evident in his lack of prosecution of the biggest criminals who are politically connected. Bharara will not chase the biggest fish, those who are part of big government, law enforcement or individual criminals who are connected to government through big business. Bharara has only been most aggressive with small fish. Bharara will not be fully respectable until he stops being a politico and when he begins to aggressively go after the real big guys, the politically connected Bernie Madoff-types and government officials who are still operating with impunity as Bharara is too afraid and too corrupt himself to tackle.
