Britain should examine criminal use of cryptocurrencies - PM May

LONDON, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Britain should take a serious look at cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin because of the way they can be used by criminals, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday.

“Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, we should be looking at these very seriously, precisely because of the way that they can be used, particularly by criminals,” May told Bloomberg Television in an interview in Davos. (Reporting by Alistair Smout; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
