    Bitcoin is a bit of a head-scratcher. Its US dollar value has fallen about 30% year-to-date, and has sunk about 80% since peaking in late 2013.

    Refresher courses about money laundering aren’t enough. Wall Streeters needs a “deep dive” into data and crowdsourcing tools. Wall Street needs to reeducate itself about the meaning of continuing education. The way it’s handled now is misdirected and ineffectual.
