City AM on 12th February reported that Rob Wainwright, head of Europol, had told Panorama on the BBC that an estimated £4 billion was being laundered through unregulated digital currency.  The BBC TV programme, “Who wants to be a Bitcoin millionaire” was aired on 12th February.

The Panorama programme is available at –


Part of the blurb for the programme says that: Panorama investigates what Bitcoin is and what it means, going inside a Bitcoin mine in Iceland – where currency is made – and spending time with the Bitcoin millionaires of Silicon Valley. The programme also hears from others who have been scammed out of their life savings and investors who think the cryptocurrency is an enormous scam and that the writing is on the wall.
