Yes

 @9MW54DDdisagreed…2mos2MO

People have a right to send their money to whoever they want, if people chose to live in America they chose the freedom and they are good people who share right values and won't sponsor terrorism with crypto. Also sanctions are bull **** .

  @ChaseOliver  from South Carolina answered…2mos2MO

No, because when shelters are funded by government, however well-meaning, the incentives of shelter administrators shift from providing better services that aid the long-term outlook of the homeless, to filling beds to receive more funding.

 @9NQL5VP from Pennsylvania answered…2mos2MO

No, but it should be regulated to where specific steps must be required to send money to sanctioned countries.

 @9RDCN23  from Virginia answered…10hrs10H

No, but it should be regulated to the point where specific steps must be required to send money to sanctioned countries.

 @9RD5T95 from New York answered…12hrs12H

It should be regulated with proof of use. Recipient families should be identified and funds should be restricted for their use only. There should also be permission for proof of use when larger sums are being transferred (i.e. family purchases a home and provided receipt within 30 days of purchase)

 @9RBN2M3 from Florida answered…1 day1D

The government should have zero involvement in personal transactions.

Most people are sending small amounts of money to help their relatives who live in other parts of the world where economies are in shambles.

Every American citizen has a right to financial privacy and self-custody. Crypto is here to stay, and banks should be planning on their eventual extinction a few decades from now, instead of trying to keep people locked into a corrupt system that's no longer sustainable, and will be replaced in time by a more efficient and beneficial financial system.

 @9R348MG from Washington answered…6 days6D

No, but such transactions should be monitored to ensure that American citizens are not contributing to terrorist movements around the world.

 @9QZHFTN from Texas answered…1wk1W

Money should be allowed to set anywhere with approval and transactional over sight. Documentation of the seller and reciever and purpose.

 @9QWMM8R from California answered…1wk1W

Yes but increase foreign aid, put a mandatory 5 day waiting period to determine if the transaction would be used as material support for an act of terrorism

 @9QVMSJPDemocrat from North Carolina answered…2wks2W

Yes, unless the transaction is fully transparent and approved/monitored by the relevant government agencies like the IRS

 @9QTZ5SBIndependent from California answered…2wks2W

No, but with known countries who may have corruption and terrorist activities, the transactions should be monitored

 @9QXT4P4 from Florida answered…1wk1W

Yes, because currency conversion is different in other countries and this method has not worked in El Salvador

 @9QWQK99from Virgin Islands answered…1wk1W

Only when there is a likelihood that this money will be used for criminal activity/ the country is under sanctions

 @9QSQ8XZ from Washington answered…2wks2W

If an Investigation is launched, and It is proven that the payment receiver isn't a government agent of the sanctioned country, then yes.

 @9QR756C from Alabama answered…2wks2W

Cryptocurrency needs to be regulated by the Federal Government and if it can’t be regulated it needs to be banned.

 @9NML9K6 from Florida answered…2mos2MO

Yes, but only countries determined to be global threats to security, such as Russia, China, and North Korea.

 @9NMJ6QFSocialist from Texas answered…2mos2MO

Yes but not for those the purpose of avoiding sanctions rather it should banned to try and kill crypto which is awful.

 @9NMCYG8 from Texas answered…2mos2MO

Ban citizens to protect them from getting scammed by using cryptocurrency not because the government should want to prevent financial transactions overseas.

 @7YS3KJPIndependent  from Arizona answered…2mos2MO

No. Regardless of whether crypto should be considered a currency or something else (I lean towards the latter), I feel this violates the Fourth Amendment. You should need a warrant.

 @9NCVR3Kfrom Virginia answered…2mos2MO

Yes and we should ban sending any of these countries any form of currency, family or not due to no considerable proof of the money reaching the family.

 @rosetintedarcher answered…2mos2MO

No, but secure verification should be enacted to ensure US money is not used for terrorism

  @JcawolfsonIndependent  from Pennsylvania answered…2mos2MO

No, but investigative agencies may obtain a warrant to examine suspicious activity

 @9MV9ZCQ from Iowa answered…2mos2MO

  @JcawolfsonIndependent  from Pennsylvania answered…2mos2MO

No, but federal agencies may investigate if they have probable cause and get a warrant

 @9MV7ZL8Libertarian from New York answered…2mos2MO

No, freedom of financial transactions protects individuals from runaway, malignant governments.

 @9MTXPWRGreen from Connecticut answered…2mos2MO

No, the government should not punish a country's whole population for the crimes of its leaders.

 @9MSXN2WLibertarian from California answered…2mos2MO

 @9QXTR72 from Virginia answered…1wk1W

No, but there should be documentation that the money is reaching individuals and not restricted governments of groups.

 @93CK7FFRepublican  from Nevada answered…3wks3W

Yes against certain sanctioned countries because we can't determine if the money will get to the relatives anyways

 @9PXQQXJ  from California answered…4wks4W

No, but it should be highly regulated and only be used for the purpose of humanitarian aid to families in need.

 @9PW9X5MIndependent from West Virginia answered…4wks4W

No, but they should regulate it to where the government can monitor individual transactions to decipher if they are illegal/terrorist related

 @9PVYPJQ from Massachusetts answered…4wks4W

No but add more restrictions and increase monitorization of this service and close the service on Sundays.

 @9PT6LY3Democrat from North Carolina answered…4wks4W

Yes, unless the transaction is fully transparent and is first submitted and approved by the relevant government agencies like the IRS

 @9PRS36Q from Illinois answered…4wks4W

They should require checks to confirm it is not going to government or terrorists in those countries

 @9NTH43Q from North Carolina answered…1mo1MO

Yes, unless the transaction is transparent and approved by relevant government agencies like the IRS or State Department

 @9NRZBG5from Virgin Islands answered…1mo1MO

Yes. And promote visas for those family members living in OFAC countries and let them come over as immigrants.

 @9NP8NFG from Virginia answered…2mos2MO

No, but it should be monitored to determine whether it is being used for terrorist or other illegal activities

 @9NNGDNZ from Maryland answered…2mos2MO

No, but surveil those who do to see if these are simply remittances or attempts to fund actions hostile to us or our allies
