This is a very bad publicity, it equals to: "ISIS, come and use bitcoin!"  Shocked

I guess the blockchain analysis and black listing will become more and more popular, like Mike Hearn said, unfortunately  Undecided

cityam says: "according to reuters"..
yet reuters source is an EU memo
yet when using the find function of the web browser. the EU memo never says the word 'bitcoin' and or 'cryptocurrency'. but when you search virtual currency.. 1 hit appears.. in regards to ensuring exchanges follow AML/KYC..

seriously media needs to research better and stop copy and pasting stories.

here is the memo that all media is speculating at:
http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEMO-15-6115_en.htm

search
"bitcoin" = no hits
"crypto" = no hits
"virtual" = 1 hit

can we now ask the OP to rename the topic as debunked.. and then lock it so it cant be bumped by sheep not even bothering to read it and going nuts thinking the media is right

We can say that Bitcoin is mainly use(ober 90%) for illegal activities. This is the truth. Terrorists , ponzies, drug dealers, illegal forex, illegal exchange companies(not licensed) and many others are the real Bitcoin. Withoth these, BTC value will be near zero.

The other part(speculators) is negligible.

It's just not fair.  Bitcoin allways gets a bad rep with mainstream news Media because guess what they are funded by banks who want bitcoin to go away so they can control.  Isn't it obvious?Huh  USD funds terrorist's just as much as bitcoin.  The problem isn't what's funding them but who is.   I'm honestly surprised that People miss this point all together.  Go back to sleep sheep.

Those are my sediments exactly. The big banks are funding these media accusations so they can steal the blockchain technology and toss out bitcoin so they don't have to deal with it or try and integrate it into their banking system somehow.
I don't think we will ever know who is funding them as it is all a conspiracy to keep the masses dumb to the facts of what is really going on behind the scenes.

Besides, we all know the CIA funds ISIS.

Whoaa, that is quite a bold statement to make on a public forum. Do you have any source documents as proof of
that? I doubt if the CIA will fund a terrorist organization to kill their own people. Why would they want to do that?

It is more likely that ISIS is getting funding from extremist supporters from within 1st world nations, owning legitimate businesses. They also sell some oil and trade with raided goods.

It was a joke. Really all I know for a fact is Vladimir Putin said G20 nations are funding, and somebody has to be buying oil from them. I don't understand why the US hasn't located them, and shut them down.

I just can't believe as saying this about bitcoin. Just like anyother currency if it is accessible to the public, terrorist can use it. Let's not lay blame on one source of their funding. I am pretty sure they have fiat being mailed to their headquarters using snail mail too.

A few day ago I also seen a spread on the BBC that claimed that the recent terrorist activity was funded with bitcoin.  According to the spread, the EU was going to have a closed door discussion to ascertain the extant of the funding activity and to figure out what to do about it.  They never did a follow up report on the issue though....so I didn't hear what they came up with behind those closed door meetings.

Please read this recently declassified Pentagon document: http://bit.ly/1DntmiA

It shows that the U.S. intentionally armed Al-qaeda groups in Syria for the purpose of overthrowing the Assad government.

Equally bad, government officials knew this action would lead to an Islamic State in Syria. In other words...

They knew it would cause the rise of what we now know as ISIS!

It’s long been suspected that the U.S. armed and trained ISIS forces. Now we have the smoking gun.

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.

Bitcoin runs under the internet, so I guess it's time to end with the internet too lol. This makes no sense, of course that terrorists will use whatever new tools that arise with technology, but it's to go against progress trying to ruin it for the people that make a good use out of them, they should ban cash first.

Yes I agree with you. All this crap, ISIS and Al Qaeda are western country creations. Mostly American creations. These western countries will never admit this though and they will always try to find another things or people to make them guilty.

I am afraid and I have a little fear that they will make a scapegoat out of Bitcoin. Just like this reportage that we are discussing here and that mentioned Bitcoin as one of the sources of funding. The things start like this!

These terrorist will use whatever funding they can get their hands on to.

Whether that's the dollar, bitcoin or euro's or any other currency they can use.

They will get their funding one way or another.

This news about ISIS mainly founded with Bitcoin is bullshit. We all know that. Bitcoin, or cryptocurrency in general is far less than 1% of ISIS funds.
But that topic is GREAT for mass media, and for FUD spreader antibitcoin haters to show people how bitcoin is a 'threat" for peace.

I too think that news like that are making stupid politicians to take legal action against 'free internet money' which bitcoin currently is.

...but you do realize your talking about Apples and Oranges, right ?
Funding does not equal Currency. Funding is useless unless it is in a currency that is accepted by the seller. BTC are far too trackable for a arms dealer to use. The SilkRoad busts showed the world that.

The US$ is far more anonymous is that sense.  THAT is the message that the Bitcoin community needs to be getting out there.

there is also gold among those, so why they put bad light on bitcoin only and not on gold? biased fud

not to mention that cash play a big role also
because bitcoin is a new currency involved in so many illegal things like silkroad...so it just bring back memory. Gold, I also agree. They shine bad light on BTC but gold is just normal to be on this list?

I would have thought that, technically, the Internet is the main funding source of Terrrism. Cut out the internet and there is less terrorism. Less people are manipulated into believing what other people think that are metally more stable than the manipulated person.
