Blockchain anaylsis company CipherTrace has released a tool for use in tracing Monero transactions.
The tool was developed for use by the DHS, who will use it to investigate crypto-related thefts and crime.
The Monero community doubts the effectiveness of the tool.
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin once had to sell half of his Bitcoin to avoid going broke.
He disclosed this after tweeting that people should never take out a personal loan to purchase Ethereum.
Just last year, his net worth was estimated to be between $100 and $200 million.
