So...

I find out about bitcoins, and am naturally excited, seeing its potential. I invest in some, and decide one of the big things that is (for now) holding it back is a lack of ready liquidity. Lots of people are reluctant to invest, thinking they'll be "stuck" with them, and those who want them may not have ready access.

I place an ad on craigslist, offering to buy and/or sell, for a small fee.

Within hours I get this email:

> You do understand that the bitcoin program is in fact not legal in this state. There is a 2007 law that outlawed virtual currency in KY. It falls under the tax codes. It is punishable by 1-5years and a min fine of 50k. You will remove this ad. If you fail to do so your account will be turned over to kirs. I will email from other accounts asking for info to get your address unles your dumb enough to reply. The facebook account and ad have 24h to be closed.

Now, obviously I'm not taking anything down. I'm just floored by the level of hostility some folks have toward bitcoins. I'm sure the Silk Road stories aren't helping any, but still... wow.  Shocked

Ask him to cite the law in question. Bet he can't or that the law doesn't apply to bitcoins.

Obviously buying and selling in bitcoins and not reporting gains to the IRS is tax evasion, but it's the "not reporting gains" portion that makes it illegal, not the bitcoins.

And who the hell reports income to the IRS on things they sell on craigslist anyways?

I don't see why they should. Virtual currencies are illegal? Really? So Paypal, Linden Dollars, eBay Bucks, etc. are all in danger of being kicked out the state? Possessing or trading them will result in jail time? And this from KENTUCKY'S legislature? Please. It's a dumb, poorly-thought-out law, even if it actually exists (and I'm not exactly finding it right off. Go figure.)

Was he so kind as to share the actual statute that banned virtual currencies?  

More importantly, is this the sort of thing that a state can regulate?  Isn't banning virtual currencies a potential hindrance to interstate commerce?  

I heard recently that an actual town established its own currency and that was legal under federal law.

All the more reason to run to the press.  Not only do you get to highlight a dumb law if it exists (I doubt that it does), but you also give Bitcoin publicity.

Just tell him Bitcoin isn't a "currency," it's just math. I don't think math is yet illegal, save within the borders of DC. For you to be prosecuted, the state would then have to prove that Bitcoin was indeed a currency, and wouldn't that be fun?

Agreed. You shouldn't let people make uncontested claims like that anyway. At least ask him to cite the statute. Post it back here if he replies. I'm really curious to see if there's actually something like that on Kentucky's books.

Hopefully the community learns not to be me such cowards as we've all be conditioned to be since birth.

I'd like you to respond to him.  I would.

Ask him to go to the Cayman islands where Trillions are laundered yearly since he's such a Defender of Justice.

Oh yeah, don't forget to tell him to bring his crime-fighting iPad2.

This bears serious examination. I can easily imagine that CIA/NSA/SS would deploy semi-automated HUMINT agents to troll for exactly these types of scenarios. Hell, BTC offers seem almost tailor made for a manipulation at these vectors.

I live in Kentucky, and have posted to Craigslist in the past.  I'm very interested in this sad little statist's response.  I'd certainly like to know if any such statute exists, and what it actually says.  I'd doubt seriously that it exists, the KRS (Kentucky Revised Statutes) are not really all that long or complicated for a state code, and I've read most of them.  I've never noticed anything talking about anything digital or currency related, but honestly I haven't looked either.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I'm no lawyer, but I've been combing through the Kentucky Revised Statues for about an hour now, and can find nothing related to the subject-- not in the statutes, not in 2007 legislative reviews, not in the press; nowhere. He may be confusing Kentucky with China, which evidently banned virtual currency for real goods in 2007. It's an easy mistake to make (if you're a jabbering mental patient).

The closest thing I could find was a 2006 law requiring a licence for "persons engaging in money transmission," which seems inapplicable.

It could be a judicial ruling? I think I could find those somewhere.

I haven't completely finished looking through the tax code yet, but unless it's listed in some obscure corner, I ain't finding it.

But yeah, challenge the douche to cite you chapter and verse. He's probably some off-duty cop trying to flex his dick by pushing you around. Don't make assumptions, admit no possibility of wrongdoing, and be as brief and polite as possible.

Your initial message was good; let's see how he responds.

Of course.  The name of the state is a proper noun, btw; which requires the respect of a capital.

"BTW" is an acronym, which should be capitalized. I recognize that it's grown common enough that we imagine it to be an abbreviation, but it is not.

"I see that you don't have the sense not to irritate the mod."

at this point i'm just hoping you're not from Kentucky, Sir!

Born and raised.

I just find it humorous that a state with stereotypes associated with it toward... a certain kind of behavior... is abbreviated "KY"

(I'm from California currently living in Vegas via St. Petersburg FL. Let the hometown/state criticism wars BEGIN!)

Hilarious statist iPad 2 troll.  I can't wait for the response.

LOL.  Thanks for sharing.

Just a recommendation, let it be.  Don't reply or you are just giving him more info on you and you don't know what someone like that would do.

There is no law against digital currencies in Kentucky.  The guy is an idiot.

The OP should have responded that he was an undercover agent trying to catch people, and to shut up before he blows his cover!!

Haven't heard a thing since my response. Don't really expect to though.

Thanks for the craigslist support. I'm not sure how many folks locally will go there to buy, but it was where I first saw someone selling bitcoins (although he never actually sold me any, prompting me to try to add more bitcoins to the market for everyone else.)

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

In the future, books that summarize the history of money will have a line that says, “and then came bitcoin.” It is the economic singularity. And we are living in it now. - Ryan Dickherber

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)
...
...
The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.

Yea, well. Bitcoin is a crank-magnet... and in the end, the people that cranks really hate the most, are other cranks.

Probably because they're the only ones that listen to them.

So um... don't.
