Monero Talk interviews Peter Van Valkenburgh

In this Monero Talk episode12, Douglas Tuman3 interviews Coin Center4’s Research Director, Peter Van Valkenburgh5, on the implications of the Tornado Cash case6 for the Monero ecosystem:

[..] whether its fair or not, Monero has gotten a reputation for being more antagonistic to surveillance regulations [vs Zcash] (Peter @ 1:00:35)

Several topics are discussed in this interview, including the history of legal issues around crypto, OFAC and the current state of AML regulations, Monero vs. Zcash and Bitcoin from a regulatory point of view and the applicability of free speech laws for computer code.
