crime 

It was interesting how in the 1980s and 90s columbian drug cartels actually invested quite large amounts of money into new research areas
- accounting practices
- creative legal theories
- organized crime politics

Anyway.

Today cryptocurrencies are investing money into cryptoGRAPHY research and pushing the field forward in the same way. It's interesting, it's horrifying and it's driven in large parts by crime (specifically, fraud, embezzlement, and money laundering)
