The Qtum foundation and our affiliated networks are a truly global entity with nodes in many countries around the world. We all benefit from the global reach of the internet and the adoption of our technology. However, we also recognize that there are checks and balances required for block chains such as ours that may be used as a financial platform in some countries. The Qtum block chain and its derivatives may not be used by organizations or individuals that are be profiting from crimes, money laundering or using blockchain tech for other heinous acts. We follow both the US Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control embargoed country and individuals listings (more details at https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Pages/default.aspx) and as a Singapore registered organization we also follow the Monetary Authority of Singapore rules regarding Anti-Money Laundering / Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) tasks as set out by the MAS and the UNSCRs.

In short, folks using our technology for illegal purposes, or to bypass securities laws do so at their peril if detected.
