Professor David Yermack is quoted in a feature story about the use of cryptocurrencies in Iran
— January 10, 2018
Excerpt from The Hill -- "Yermack said the transparency of many cryptocurrencies makes it easy to trace payments to their issuers. 'A lot of these currencies have blockchains that are completely transparent and you can monitor them,' Yermack said. 'It’s a double-edged sword. It gives liquidity to people in these countries but it also gives the government a way to prosecute them.'"
