Law enforcement and crypto companies form alliance

Bitcoin companies announced an alliance with law enforcement to promote security of digital assets and communications.  The Blockchain Alliance comes in the wake of system wide acknowledgment that one of the impediments to cryptocurrency use is the image problem created by high-profile cases like the Silk Road case or the Mt. Gox debacle. While this may be a step on the road to rehabilitating Bitcoin’s image, internet chatter shows many original adopters fear more sinister results.
