The virtual currency Bitcoin has come under close scrutiny from US regulaters after the charging of two exchange operators with money laundering. Robert Faiella and Charlie Shrem are accused of attempting to sell more than $1m (0.7m euros) in the digital currency to users of an online drug marketplace website. Silk Road was shut down by the authorities last year after its suspected owner was arrested.
