ICYMI, 12 Russians were indicted in a wide-ranging sweep that may be indicative of an upcoming major cyber attack.

On Friday, House Representative Emanuel Cleaver took to Twitter to express his concern about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies being used in such extremist attacks.

He is basically putting the onus on blockchain founders and the BTC Foundation to get involved, and this isn’t the first time Cleaver has spoken out on the matter. Back in May 2018, the Bitcoin Foundation attempted to explain the benefit of a decentralized currency not owned by any entity.

It should be noted that Representative Cleaver is an advocate of cryptocurrency in general, he just wants the public to be aware of its capabilities in cyber crimes.
