Bitcoin Q&A: Blacklists, surveillance, and unstoppable code


How can I check if a bitcoin address is blacklisted? Why does blacklisting addresses not work? What are your thoughts on surveillance companies in the industry? What does it mean to build unstoppable code in a world of regulations like KYC/AML? Is there a fundamental difference between writing code and running a business? These questions are from the August monthly patron session, which took place on August 24th 2019.
