Opinion: Danske Bank's Estonian branch is suspected of spending $223 billion on money laundering, much higher than the money laundering amount of digital currency users.

On November 11th, the Danish financial institution Danske Bank was involved in a massive money-laundering scandal related to the Estonian branch, which allegedly washed $223 billion in eight years. According to documents disclosed this week back to 2012, Dansk Bank's Estonian branch allowed a group of Russian select clients to convert their funds into gold bars to help hide funds; the amount of gold transferred was unknown. The money-laundering scandal was called "the biggest scandal in Europe's history", and the money laundering funds of the Estonian branch came from Russia, Latvia, Cyprus, Britain, China, Switzerland and Turkey. The Bitcoin.com article pointed out that the Danske Bank scandal showed that although the government and tax authorities are cracking down on the small amount of money that digital currency users may be laundering, the world's best-known banks are also the biggest money launderers. The world's leading banks help wash money more than $2 trillion a year and are fined a small amount. Bankers are not imprisoned, and banks and politicians are allowed to invade ordinary people's daily financial activities.
