Over the last weeks I managed to use steganographic methods to store custom data in the block chain. The only required information to retrieve the data is the starting block number and information about the algorithm that was used to store the data.

This data contains information that is considered illegal in most Western countries. In fact, most countries are likely to send you to jail, if you knowingly spread this data. Which is exactly what you're doing right now - if you're running a Bitcoin client.

Please consider this as a warning. In exactly one week from now I will inform US police departments about the way how the data can be retrieved from the block chain and how IP addresses of nodes distributing this data can be collected. I can't tell you what to do, but by running a Bitcoin client right now you're in legal jeopardy.

I guess you forgot about the part of how many people now actually use the bitcoin wallet program? Somehow I don't think it's that many. And even still to go ahead and say that there is illegal content that "you" supposedly injected would be like shooting yourself in the foot. Good job troll

*Wow a Necro thread* lol

It's the appropriate thread to necro considering the "kiddy porn in blockchain" drama thread that popped up last week. It would do people good to realize that their ideas have not only been thought about before, but extensively argued, and they should learn how to use the search function before posting new drama.
