Law Enforcement Still Monitors Bitcoin To Arrest Deep Web Users

There have been a lot of question asked as to how law enforcement agencies can track down users on the deep web. As it turns out, there are nearly a dozen different methods which can be used to do so.

Of course, not an advice for  people who use bitcoins for some illegal activities. These people, deserve to get punish for breaking the law.
But for oppressed people who happen to live under dictatorship and suppression.  They could change their bitcoins for dash or other similar altcoin. Change back on another exchange. Also, it would not hurt to use some tumblers in the way in and out. Repeat it several times for really paranoid. And Kim Jong-un probably could not prosecute these freedom loving people for buying subscription on Washington Post website with bitcoins.

Anonymity and privacy on the deep web work both ways, but also poses significant risks. It would not be the first time a law enforcement official went ‘undercover’ on such a marketplace. Buyers have no idea who the seller is, and vice versa. Sometimes, that other person may be a law enforcement agent.
