Not really. Cash has big drawbacks for illegal purposes: lack of anonymity, traceability, and weight: paper money is heavy, and the electronic version is very, very traceable. It's really, really difficult to lose the paper trail and legitimise your ill-gotten gains without either getting caught, or getting less than 20% of face value.

Crypto isn't - or at least not as easily - which is why it's the organised crime currency of preference. I'd expect to see an expansion in the use of crypto for even street level drug dealing in the next few years or so to reduce that problem for example.
