In any event, this is really most interesting because of its potential implication in a case of self-produced and distributed kiddie-porn, should any of those stripping-for-Bitcoins babes turn out to be underage.

Kim Zetter

The FBI sees the anonymous Bitcoin payment network as an alarming haven for money laundering and other criminal activity — including as a tool for hackers to rip off fellow Bitcoin users.

The number of places that accept cryptocurrencies are extremely limited, so it's not any easier to buy a gallon of milk with a Bitcoin than it is with a lump of gold, but many think that day is coming. What about you? Do you think cryptocurrency has a future, or do you think it's a geeky fad that will fade away? Send an e-mail with "CRYPTOCURRENCY" in the subject line to shawn@linuxjournal.com, and I'll follow up with an article based on your feedback.

(basically a tool to use graphviz on bitcoin transactions)

Can't wait to try it on some of my addresses.
I suspect I'm not going to learn much.. but combined with some sort of public database of annotated addresses I guess tools like this will be getting more and more interesting to the average bitcoiner, and to amateur incident-sleuths and LE types.

I've also not been able to send money. Testing on a family members iPhone. (not jailbroken - iPhone 4 I think)
It just hangs. I've only ever left it for about 5 minutes - then need to switch phone off and on to recover.

(2) The idea of brokers "stealing" from clients is ridiculous. If your broker is stealing from you, you should take them to court and get a new broker.

I don't know what it's like in other parts of the world - but in Australia about the lowest cost for a trade appears to be around $10  
Now that's trivial to most people who are trading - but it's an entry barrier tax on the small player for which I can see little excuse in an age of electronically mediated trades.
Still - I don't really see how Bitcoin is going to help with that in any reasonable timeframe even if it does grow significantly, so I did find it a somewhat strange inclusion in the video.

The media picks up on the 'FBI' bitcoin april 2012 report.
Notably absent is any real scrutiny as to whether the document is genuine (although based on the nature of the content, it seems plausible)

I think Matthews 'troll' shrieks with dubious reasoning were a bit of a red herring.. however, he may be onto something as far as who the uploader is.
Matthew may be right for mostly the wrong reasons.

I didn't notice at first that it was 'tradebitcoin' who uploaded it (though it's in plain view).  Clearly the OP Andrew Bitcoiner knows something about the source.

If this is fake, it makes far more sense as an attempt to gain hits/eyeballs to a commercial operation (Andrew Bitcoiner's tradebitcoin.us or bitcoinadvertisers.com) than as a mere 'troll'.
This is another case of the word 'troll' being bandied about in a timewasting fashion.

Andrew Bitcoiner - please either come clean about this as a fake, or make some statement about how it is you came to upload it to scribd.


...and (if applicable) by coming clean sooner rather than later - avoid my requests to forum mods to have you labelled as a scammer.

I've met Andrew, and he joined us outside the Future of Money Summit for a Bitcoin chat, super nice guy.

When this paper was leaked by him last night, he emailed it to a number of undisclosed recipients.

He also privately emailed me and said "the fbi report was forwarded to me by a trusted source  Cool"

That, and based on the thorough analyses by SgtSpike and myself I strongly agree this is authentic.

My legal team is making inquiries and going over it as well, will update as I get more info

-Charlie

Thanks Charlie...  It struck me as a little odd that the 1st release should appear to be from a bitcoiner - but as I mentioned in earlier posts, I totally agree that the content itself is extremely plausible.

I do however find the 'bitcoinadvertisers.com' in the metadata of the scribd posting suspicious.

Matthew is right to point this out.

OP - care to clarify?  

edit: It's not clear to me whether this indicates anything to do with who posted the doc to scribd - or if it's just scribd software matching keywords to post the bitcoinadvertisers.com ad in the sidebar.
edit2: oh.. though it seems 'tradebitcoin' uploaded the doc.  Well that is pretty sus.

The very fact that a document in 2008 looked similiar should be proof enough considering the FBI doesn't keep the same style of letterheads for 4 years.
...

Sure they do.
From 2004:  http://wlstorage.net/file/fbi-ecoterrorism-tactics-2004.pdf
(http://wikileaks.org/wiki/FBI:_Tactics_Used_by_Eco-Terrorists_to_Detect_and_Thwart_Law_Enforcement_Operations,_15_Apr_2004 )


Healthy skepticism is warranted - you're right that the April 2012 document is currently lacking any other source to back it up.
Your skepticism is a little too strident however.


1256  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin FBI Report April 2012 on: May 08, 2012, 10:31:39 AM
For what it's worth - this wouldn't be the first FBI intelligence report to be leaked:

http://wikileaks.org/wiki/FBI:_White_Supremacist_Recruitment_of_Military_Personnel_2008
http://documents.law.yale.edu/sites/default/files/FBI_WHITE_SUPREMACY-2008-ocr.pdf     (note the similar design)

I still classify this document as extremely plausible.



1257  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin FBI Report April 2012 on: May 08, 2012, 06:43:48 AM
I assess with a medium confidence level - that this is a genuine leak.
The overall tone,scope and language used are suggestive to me that it's the real deal.

Trolls are seldom so understated, nor do they have such attention to detail.
