The IRS is out with a Request for Proposal (RFP) to break Monero ($XMR) and other networks that the IRS is currently unable to trace transactions on.
It'll be interesting to see what comes of this. Will the "whitehat" hackers beat the $XMR engineers?
Time will tell.
If they do, don't be surprised to see these tools turned against taxpayers not involved in criminal investigations.
