It is hypocrisy at its finest, let's castrate bitcoin - it is the root of all evil! EU fucked up with refugee crisis and years of pure bureaucracy dulled their minds.
It is the another idiotic idea, they think that taming bitcoin will gonna change something with Islamic terrorism and money laundering? This is not the way, gentlemen.

That should be easy then, as bitcoin is not anonymous anyway: http://www.bitcoinisnotanonymous.com/

What is anonymous, is cash. I wonder if EU is also planning to ban cash?

You shouldn't worry about this. How are they going to end the pseudo-anonymity of something that they don't even understand? Besides, the most that they can do is request more information from companies.

i think that they are not understanding that you can not stop a decentalized system

old generation is still not well aware how a decentralization work, yes they can hinder adoption, but adoption currently it's a joke anyway, only geek people are using bitcoin basically...

Exactly! Hilarious read, yeah good luck trying to enforce that. I always have a little laugh when I read about banks, governments, offical bodies etc threatening to clamp down on certain aspects of bitcoin. How exactly.....

There is nothing wrong with this tbh, they want companies to keep track of who is buying/selling bitcoins, coinbase and other similar exchanges around the world already do this.

If they are going to protect the customers of such companies then there is nothing wrong. Nobody who uses Bitcoin is forced to use those companies and can retain their pseudo-anonymity.

Exactly! Hilarious read, yeah good luck trying to enforce that. I always have a little laugh when I read about banks, governments, offical bodies etc threatening to clamp down on certain aspects of bitcoin. How exactly.....
Maybe if they understood it, I'd take them seriously.

Pseudo, they forgot to append pseudo in the term anonymous to describe bitcoin. Also, more UNLIKELY help to terrorism came from cash/fiat, and I wonder how they are not seeing this one and tend to look at bitcoins instead. :/

What they should first solve is making sure their ladies are safe from the raping refugees instead. Sooner they'd all be invaded if very event in their cities includes rape scenes.
Thats a bigger problem than stopping making bitcoin transactions anonymous  when in fact it isn't at all.

everyone CHILL OUT

its not about bitcoin.
its about unregulated exchanges that handle FIAT

they are not going after bitcoin-core to start demanding users hand over ID, its purely exchanges that handle FIAT unregulated.

so chill out, its not an attack on bitcoin

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

Europe wants end to anonymous Bitcoin transactions

Money-laundering powers seen as crimp on terror funds if virtual currencies offer (unlikely) help

Well, they can sure try, but I don't see how that could work in the practical world. The monitoring of transactions could lead to something, but not the identity of such money launderes or terrorists

Of course it exists at some level. How do you link a transaction to a specific person's identity??
