Suex to be you: Feds sanction cryptocurrency exchange for handling payments from 8+ ransomware variants

Presumably the test might be along the lines of "what proportion of the funds and/or transactions flowing through the bank result from criminal activity".

I can imagine that a large bank like JP Morgan might - entirely inadvertently, of course - handle quite large volumes of criminal transactions, and perhaps even in excess of those at Suex, but they would still be a very small proportion of JP's total activities. Whereas, to quote the article on Suex, "According to the US Treasury, more than 40 per cent of the firm's known transaction history involves illicit entities".
