I wonder how they want to control that.
I mean, if I buy a used car for 10000$ and pay cash, would the seller say "No, that's against the law, I will go to the police"??

I think that limit is only about shops, if you buy it from another user and not from a car dealer you will not have this limit (and its anything that they can't control).

So in a deal private to private i can use as much as cash i want? Don't the vendor for example need a traceable payment to demonstrate the origin of the money recevied in cash? I'm talking about big deal

I don't know, but on big investment like buying a house, an appartment... , there are some legal documents that you need to register, and goverment could ask about the origin of the money.

Sooner or later we will witness the explosion of PM's and cryptos.. probably ones more like Dash however.. The ability to track BTC transactions makes it a tool for the slavers and the enemy of the free :S..

I think that on big investment you can't buy it whit cash in the EU, you have to prove the origin of your funds and have a traceable payment for the deal. whitout this is too risky

Isn't it crazy how all the different governments are telling people how & when then can spend THEIR OWN money?  Can wait for bitcoin to be mainstream and trump all the government imposed laws!

It's the end of the world,  and this is why bitcoin and the altcoins are going to be useful.  You'll see.  It's not just Germany.

The only thing that matters is weapons and man power.  This is currently true and will always be true.

It will not come to this point. The German government is highly depend on high cash payments.
Even the German central bank (Bundesbank) has stated that it is not a good idea.

Yeah Trump so cool and all  Roll Eyes

The only point of limiting cash transaction is to help fighting tax evasion you idiot! Of course government tries to tell you how to spend your money! Cause otherwise you'd spend it on taxes on purpose?

And if you just want the end of taxes... Well you belong to this category of people believeing that you shouldn't get help from government in any way at all and it should all be only based on your work and all...
Which means you completely deny reality but that's something else.

Germany limit of 5.000 € isn't too low, other european countries had lower limits on cash transactions, for example Portugal and Italy 1.000 €, Spain 2.500 € and France 3.000 €. The limit only is for cash transaction, you can make higher payments with credit or debit cards or by bank transference.

It is too low. Pretending that cash is some kind of alien entity, and settings to criminalize people who spending their money is immoral and tyrannical.

These kind of limitations will lead people to stop putting their money in banks and more people will start thinking about using bitcoin or other alternative to bypass these limitations.

It is like that, but what if u wish to have that money on your credit card in the bank? I think purpose of this is to follow people even more, to know what we are doing with our money. And to pay tax on every transaction we make.
Bitcoin offer so much more then fiat but people dont realize that for now. Cause of this kind of actions people will see how bitcoin can be good for them.

If they think they can prevent money laundering this way, ok!
What is sign of adopting. This is not bad at all. Average person don't have needs over 1000 euros per day...This is better for bitcoin than you can imagine!

This is just the beginning.
After a while the government will reduce it to 3000€, then 1500€ and at the end cash will be banned.
The only reason they are doing this is to control the population and to prepare the next bailout/bailin for the banks so that people can not withdraw what is theirs when shit is hitting the fan.


IMO Denker has this new German policy read correctly.  These kinds of *new* regulations always start out unthreatening...  Just like the very low US Income Tax did in 1913 (something like a maximum high rate of 4%).

Then, once the camel's nose is in the tent (or teh frog in water heating up), they tighten and tighten.  Then it becomes a really bad problem.

Well yeah. But decentralization doesn't have only advantages. That means you limit a lot the power of your government.

Well considering how shitty most governments are you can consider it as a side benefit Grin

But still, it means a global adoption of bitcoin would lead every government to the ruins.
