Bitcoin Q&A: CoinJoin, Privacy, and Network Bifurcation

Will CoinJoins making blockchain analytics irrelevant? Could there be a bifurcation of the network over privacy improvements, if a large portion of the supply is held in centralised services?

CORRECTION: At 1:57 I say that the European Union has deemed CoinJoin to be illegal. This is completely false. While various centralized / custodial mixing services have been shut down (https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/dutch-authorities-shut-down-bestmixer), there are a few CoinJoin wallets which are not custodial and there has not been any European Union legislation banning CoinJoin.

This question is from the CryptoCompare Digital Asset Summit, delivered on June 12th 2019 in London, England: https://aantonop.com/event/digital-asset-summit/
