To be fair, it takes a lot to be as evil as Deutsche Bank.

You'd have to find out how the Chinese handle banking, close down all banks, and have them reopen Chinese style.  Because you know that you can presumably spend more to hide ownership of a corporation than the SEC can afford to trace it, and presumably maintain enough control.

But I'd imagine that there would be a few honest bankers along with the cat and mouse game of "find the real banker".

I don't have any love for Bitmex, but it is interesting that their execs have been criminally charged, while executives at Banks knowingly laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists were not.

Reading through this article, they are no better than the banks and have engaged in aiding terrorism, willfully.
I agree that charging the execs themselves seems unprecedented, but their absolute disregard for even attempting to verify that criminals are using their platform is unprecedented.

As I said, since when has aiding and abetting criminal syndicates to launder money been a crime? It certainly isn't in the banking industry.
