He got busted just like any other sorry ass drug dealer. Should be the end of subject. If it was my son and he got caught pushing and condoning and aiding in drug sales amongst other things, I would have kicked his ass as well early on.

I luv bitcoin and the concept and all the potential it holds, but bullshit like this with Ross and others is absolutely ruining it for the rest of us.

Sorry no sympathy here.

How is it ruining it? If you love the concept and all its potential then you should see the potential it has for using it for drugs, Does buying drugs with fiat ruin that too? In fact, I would argue that being able to buy drugs with bitcoin is a big benefit of btc as it allows us to purchase things free from state intervention or regulation (at least in theory). If people want to buy drugs then let them as it's none of the states business.

Only in fantasy land lol Now if Walgreen's or CVS takes payments in BTC for my prescriptions, then yes its all good. So long as BTC serves for illegal use its image will be just that. Shit BTC 225.00 now? lol BUT use them as you see fit. And until BTC fiat was the only real option to buy anything  Wink Drugs included

PS: Bill O'Reilly on fox news will be discussing Rosses crimes and sentence if yall want to watch.... 8PM eastern

Bitcoin has always inclined towards illegal activities like selling drugs. Even Gambling is something why a majority of people got into bitcoin . Despite giving bitcoin a bad name, they don't really affect people holding them . Ross did get busted like a drug dealer but he also had a sentence for a lifetime due to other charges which a normal drug dealer would probably not have got.

What load of BS? Less than 0.1% of all the drug sales are conducted through Bitcoin. Fiat cash accounts for the remaining 99.9%. The most well-known drug cartels, such as the Ndrangheta, Cosa Nostra, Beltrán-Leyva Cartel, Gulf Cartel, Sinaloa Cartel, Solntsevskaya Bratva, NATO in Afghanistan.etc never use Bitcoin.
