Crypto exchange Kraken reportedly hunted by the Feds for alleged sanctions busting


Hmmm - interesting definition

Putting aside all the unsurprising other news about the crypto world being rife with scammers, thieves and sundry other crooks, I do find it interesting that this crew seem to have charged with "exporting" to Iran.

So, if there have been trades in entirely digital (supposed) assets, how does that become "exporting"? Are the Americans trying to say that the bits representing those assets have been "exported" to Iran, when the tokens may actually lie anywhere?
