Just remember, nothing is ever made illegal.

1. Only certain people declare a thing to be illegal. Usually they do it for their own advantage in some way.

2. When something is made illegal, what is really happening is that people are being limited. If you like limitations, simply limit yourself. Don't take my freedom away by limiting me.

This is human evolution:



It makes you wonder...

It is probably hard for people to protest and get BTC legalized, as they would fear getting labeled as Criminal partisans.

Basically a lot of FUD is being spread as Bitcoin being a criminal's money, even though in reality BTC does not even have 1% of the market cap being used in criminal transactions.

Considering how oblivious the masses are to the facts, truth and just plainly what Bitcoin is in the first place, i don't see mass protestation really happening. =/

This is a problem for everyone because letting a country making BTC illegal create precedents for other Governments to use against Bitcoin.

The Chairman of the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) has declared Bitcoin to be illegal in Taiwan, following a recent high-profile kidnapping accident involving ransom demands made in Bitcoin.

What do you think about this? They banned bitcoin because 1 kidnapping case, while there are many kidnapping case with their fiat, or is it just a reason to ban bitcoin in taiwan.
Bitcoin adoption is taiwan is really good, and shows big potential. But now bitcoin has been banned Sad

Kidnappers taking 1.6 mil of bitcoin wont need to worry about spending it in taiwan.  Same as any other crime for a large amount they can use it elsewhere.

Why would you want Bitcoin or anything else legalized? Legalization takes away freedom.

Let government get their thieving fingers off everything, and get rid of both, legalization and illegalization... SO WE CAN BE FREE.

If it wasn't illegal to start your own open money system, fiat would have perished long ago. Get rid of illegalization of everything so that we can be free. The only advantage might be that now we have Bitcoin, where we might not otherwise. However, without illegalization of private money by government, we might have something way better than Bitcoin by now.

one thing i can think about would be to increase adoption among those that want to use it only if regulated, and i want assure you that "those" are the vast majority of the population

well for me it is been a little been absurd that because of the kidnapping case the currency being banned,

but i can also understand that this kind of government thinking

yes bitcoin has been label as illegal currency, money laundry currency and other because of the anonymous,

but i think government can think other ways than banning Bitcoin, because bitcoin has a potential become global currency

As I said on an earlier thread on this topic: I don't know anything about the Taiwanese legal structure. I have however directly witnessed instances where 'the cryptocurrency press' had not gotten the story quite right.

In Taiwan, does the chair of the FSC have the authority to enact law by simple proclamation?

Anyone with a campaign ad in their signature -- for an organization with which they are not otherwise affiliated -- is automatically deducted credibility points.

I've been convicted of heresy. Convicted by a mere known extortionist. Read my Trust for details.

if its like Singapore for starters they would try assasination,, f they do go for an arrest

u would need to know the language of the police officers ( not relevant if ur a local)

when they try to arrest u, typically they will go for an arrest if u have had some drinks and

after they have had the chance  to get someone to spike ur drink,, once ur in Jail in one

of these countries ur really really fked they can ban ur bank accounts refuse access to

bail lawayers etc, even the lawyers are corrupt,  so take a Taiwan Ban as complete #&%

That's all nice, I guess, but I can't see how that answers my question. Neither does it dispel my suspicion that this is a false rumor.

Local things dont matter in their eyes. But bitcoin is international stuff with much media coverage. Plus it might annoy a few banks there.

If the banks have control over politicians there, and they fear bitcoin, they will ban it.

Any time I see that a country has banned Bitcoin, I actually go and look at what really happened and it is some entity without the authority to make anything illegal or they are merely "banning Bitcoin from their banking system".
Something tells me that the chairman of the Financial Supervisory Commission of Taiwan likely cannot unilaterally pass laws.

These types of things also give a glimpse into how closely tied the central banks are to many governments in the world.

Exactly, there is a huge difference between "banning Bitcoin from their banking system" and actually trying to throw people in jail for connecting to a Bitcoin wallet.

They are putting their feet on their grave with this since they are denying a huge booming economy to take part on their country. These clowns will learn the hard way.

The state wants to keep taxing (stealing) people, and BTC prevents that they do so as efficiently.

Taiwanese government is already failing bigtime at successfully taxing the people right now. But yeah who knows.

I call traditionalism as the reason why the government (and the people) are sceptical about bitcoin and sensationalism as the reason why media circles made the news about it becoming illegal that big.

Who can stop you from collecting Bitcoin and spending it in another country, or better yet, relocating to another country when it does get banned? The media are such a attention whore, and they will jump on the first rumor and sell it as fact within the first hour.

Until Taiwan make a public statement about matters like this, you have to take everything as Media Fud.
