i doubt it.
criminal activities were happening even before bitcoin. for example the ransomware that everyone is talking about these days have been around a very long time before bitcoin was created!

and besides since bitcoin doesn't offer real anonymity it can not really help the criminals as much as things like hard cash helps them.

I have a normal idea about it. In world criminal activities are increasing day by day. Most criminal are used bitcoin. Actually they can not use bitcoin ,they abuse bitcoin. Now, in my country criminals are abuse bitcoin. It,s very harmful for any country. Bitcoin is a trusted site, so don,t abuse it.

I don't understand, you mean people that are criminal in your country are abusing bitcoin and can not use it? I guess what you are trying to imply is that criminals are not using bitcoin for normal good transactions and instead they use it for illegal transactions, right?

Bitcoin is a very promising form of investment. This is what makes criminals commit criminals dibitcoin, some very great features in bitcoin is certainly very profitable for everyone. And this does not rule out the perpetrators of criminals will take advantage of existing features in bitcoin to make transactions for crimes they committed. The many forms of criminalization of the existence of bitcoin certainly must diwaspadi by bitcoin users, lest we lose the actions of criminals who can harm us.

Already,there is an accusation against bitcoin that its widely used for illegal activities.now,adding fuel to the fire,some critics say that cyber crimes are being unded with bitcoins and bitcoins have become the first choice of cyber criminals for payment.They like it due to its anonymity but i don't understand why they would choose bitcoins since it is only pseudo anonymous.but it is said that to trace such bitcoin transactions beyond boundaries abroad is not possible.Bitcoin gaining popularity  and big companies accepting it as a payment has attracted the attention of all towards bitcoin.Bitcoin is a new currency and so cyber crime laws must be improved to avoid such uses.But just as USD is used for funding crimes,same is the case with bitcoin and bitcoin could not be blamed in any way for such activities.

I will not be shocked if it's factual or not. Bitcoin's decentralization and anonymity attract syndicates and/or powerful people/families, to transact under the radar of the Government. Being anonymous would give them an edge to freely do their dirty works and they have total control on it, also this is an advantage towards their competitors. Plus, These syndicates are now working with advanced technology and the fact that they have access on the web they could easily adapt to a better payment and transaction system which is Bitcoin. They could manipulate it if they want to, and nothing could stop them.

Doing illegal or criminal activities using bitcoin is something that criminals will definitely do, for example to buy weapons etc. using bitcoin, because transactions using bitcoins are very safe and will remain anonymous so that criminals will not be easily detected.

Bitcoins is getting a bad name and it's nothing that's it has done to get it, it's due to Game of thrones, the alleged Mr Smith, has demanded 6 million in Bitcoins and every time leak news comes, people are highlighting Bitcoin and sooner or later we are going to see a major anger of people directed at us, Bitcoin users. So many of my friends have taunted me that's it's bad and one should not use it and I am really worried that the hackers are really spoiling the name of Bitcoins.

A bitcoin facility that can make users anonymous is very beneficial to many, including high-ranking state officials who want to launder money, and this will be very profitable for them in many ways either through their transactions or the sending and receiving that will not be known to anyone

https://www.deepdotweb.com/2016/01/23/bitcoin-playing-an-increased-role-in-crime-europol-says/

Would you believe that the existence of bitcoin has increased the number of criminality in  some countries in the world. This is the issue that was being thrown by the EuroPol and the UK Metropolitan Police. According to them bitcoin has played a huge role on the increasing criminality in their area. They added that a huge number of cybercriminals were using bitcoins in their activities.

This just shows that as bitcoin develops both advantages and disadvantages will tag along.
Not only bitcoin ,anything and everything will have advantages and disadvantages,and they start growing,their advantages and disadvantages will grow along with it.It hardly takes some time to find a loophole,but to make sure that loophole will be  never found  is next to impossible. So like it or not bitcoin is getting a bad impression and we are getting a bad impression as people think that all those who use btc are criminals and nothing else.

Over the years, people have engaged in criminal activities in all climes of the society even as at the time when people only valuable resources is wrist watch or glasses and the likes. Even at the present moment people still engage in all sort of criminal activities just to rob people of their resources and using bitcoin is just a way for a criminal minded individual who would use anything he lay his hands on for his selfish interest. In all bitcoin cannot be stopped to be used for these activities because entrance is not screened.

I guess that’s what he means, lol. Bitcoin is not the cause of criminal activities, because their have been such even years before Bitcoin was invented. But, I will also say that Bitcoin kinda makes things easy for them in a way.

With the decentralized functioning and the anonymous nature of bitcoin usage has been found to be an easier way for criminality. This has made a bad image for bitcoin from people who doesn't have good understanding about bitcoin and its related factors.

This is not applying only to bitcoins this can happen some other sources also and many peoples doing this already good and bad peoples in every field just saying bitcoin's anonymous nature is easier for criminality is not good

Many Idiot people using bitcoin in a bad way like buying drugs, illegal weapons and fire arms and also different organ of human body. I saw it in a site of a deep web, the payment that is using is bitcoin. That is one of the disadvantages of the bitcoin.
My friend here is blaming bitcoins to be used in the wrong way instead of the people who are misusing such asset. If you were able to access deep web, you must also be aware of that FBI and other agencies can trace such criminality as it happened with Ross. I don't know how they were able to get their hands on his private key but it happened.

The many forms of criminalization of the existence of bitcoin certainly must diwaspadi by bitcoin users, lest we lose the actions of criminals who can harm us.
Criminals are using bitcoins to perform their illegal activities basically due to the anonymity it gives to its holders. They can make large transactions and nobody can catch them so they are finally free from all the worries of getting caught. They are forgetting karma. If you do badly with others, ultimately it will return to you.

Not all criminal activities can be linked with Bitcoin
Bitcoin cannot be used with any kind of criminal activities
But we can can agree that with the use of Bitcoins, those who are into ransom has increased their chances of not blowing up their cover.
Those who use money as payment to drugs, gun smuggling can use Bitcoin to pay and remain unknown
However, not every criminal in this world are into this kind of technology, keep in mind that there are more small time criminals out there that those who are big time and small time ones prefer cash and fast money.
what if we say many cyber crime is happen due to bitcoin, just like previous days, Script of GOT was hacked by hacker and then HBO pays them $250k worth bitcoin and after then GOT's episode was hacked, and again hacker want bitcoin, so my point is why not bitcoin transaction become traceable by intelligence agencies?? if it happen then no one will blame bitcoin for criminal activities.
