IRS Is Keeping a Close Eye on Illegal Bitcoin Transactions Through Telegram

The IRS is closely monitoring illegal bitcoin transactions via Telegram, according to Decrypt on June 15. Chris Janczewski, a special agent in the IRS’s cybercrime division, said one of the biggest concerns for law enforcement officials right now is secret chats on the privacy-protected chat app Telegram, due to the fact that peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions running on the Telegram app can move stolen money quickly and easily.
