Here's a synopsis of a report by @MessariCrypto on Bridging BTC to #HarmonyONE's EVM👇
messari.io/article/bridgi… @MessariCrypto 2/ Since Bitcoin does not have smart contracts, it is challenging to create conditioned & complex transactions.

This makes programmatic custody of bitcoin & bridging it trustlessly to other chains quite difficult and most BTC used on other chains is via centralized custodians.

26/ PRIVACY RIGHTS

While crypto entrepreneurs should set clear guidelines on KYC/AML reporting while preserving privacy, peer-to-peer transaction reporting & disclosure requirements on self-custody assets are unconstitutional overreaches. Get a warrant, or we’ll see you in court 27/ While it is built for decentralization, using crypto for nefarious purposes leaves an excellent paper trail for prosecutors to lock in a conviction. People who build products that aim to serve dark markets almost always get caught & go to jail.
