Can Bitcoin self-regulate or does it require government regulation?

On this episode of #TheTatianaShow, we explore this question and more with Amber Scott, a friend from the Baltic Honey Badger Conference.

Amber is the founder, CEO, and Chief Anti-Money Laundering Ninja for Outlier Solutions. They are a Canadian consulting firm focusing on developing compliance solutions for clients such as banks, dealers in virtual currencies, and credit unions. Their areas of expertise include Canadian anti-money laundering, counter terrorist financing, privacy, and regulatory compliance. Amber is a self-professed compliance geek with a passion for technology.

Tatiana and Amber have a great conversation covering a wide swath of topics including government or self regulation of crypto, which country has the best regulations, and what Amber is most excited for in 2020 for Bitcoin. We even throw in some talk about Ross Ulbricht, marijuana legalization, and Orwell’s 1984. 

About the Guests:

Amber D. Scott, MBA, CIPPC, CBP, CAMS

Founder, CEO & Chief AML Ninja, Outlier Solutions Inc. aka Outlier Compliance Group

Amber is a compliance geek with a passion for technology.

After graduating from the University of Waterloo, Amber joined the compliance group at one of Canada’s largest insurers where she focused on the implementation of technology-based processes to streamline compliance.  She has since worked in in-house roles with major securities firms and banks. Somewhere along the line, she added MBA, CBP, and a few other letters after her name. 

Amber joined a boutique compliance consulting firm, then larger consulting firm, before getting frustrated enough with the status quo to launch Outlier Solutions Inc. (Outlier) in 2013. Outlier specializes in anti-money laundering (AML) and privacy compliance. The company is based on one of the premises of Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers: that to be really good at something you need a lot of practice (about 10,000 hours). Each of Outlier's team members has 10,000 hours or more of in-house (not consulting) compliance experience. Amber loves leading this team of entrepreneurial compliance badasses.
