So i’ve recently read this post from reuters: [https://www.reuters.com/breakingviews/bitcoin-passes-ransom-test-2021-05-14/](https://www.reuters.com/breakingviews/bitcoin-passes-ransom-test-2021-05-14/)
And it got me thinking, how do we balance decentralisation, the right to anonymity and major criminal activity?
In many past cases this also prevents cashing out ransomed funds through official exchanges simply by blacklisting blockchain/DAG addresses.
This comes with a problem though, tokes get flat out unusable limiting the actual overall supply.
Is there any project that actually addressed this and has/is working on a solution for this scenario?
How would a solution look with a completely decentralized approach that doesn’t use exchanges?
I thought that maybe burning and reintroducing wallet funds into a project through a consensus vote would be a possible idea but how can a system like that prevent abuse?
Kinda curious if this is even achievable
