Common sense tells us that syndicates and criminals does illegal activities so they can earn money. Well that money is of course the fiat currency we are using right now. In the united states of America if you are watching movies you will see how US dollars are being used to buy weapons, drugs, pay the mercenaries and everything. If you have lots of US dollars aside from purchasing or doing trades in the black market you can also watch porn online and offline.

But please take note that the government prohibits the use of US dollars in any form of malicious and illegal activities. If you can use your money in a legal and moral way then it is the right thing to do.

USD used many illegal activities I think because it is main currency in the world to be the benchmark currency of the countries in the world, so widely spread. USD it became many used for illegal activities like terrorism and illegal war because of its spread widely so that it can be reached by people who are not responsible. The use USD for legal or illegal activity actually depends on each person who uses that can not be avoided and unruly spread.
That's right, currency is basically a tool and don't have an intelligence so even some currencies being used for illegal activities it's can't be concluded as those currencies were getting involved into crimes and after that it's prohibited, some media sometimes just too hypocrite and always making the images of their opponent looks bad by spreading bad news about it,but at the end it's just a currency
Everything is being used for illegal activities even if it is currencies or not. For easier trades, most of the people choose currencies to involve in illegal activities. In the future, Bitcoin will be soon used for illegal purposes such as USD is being used right now.

Cannot agree more these days all currency are used for criminal activities so it does not really matters if something is used for it..

Yes, I really like what you say that currency is basically a tool and don't have an intelligence. That is true, for what that currency will be used quite dependent on the person using it. So we can not fault currency if it is used for illegal activities. Spreading USD high and become a benchmark currency worldwide makes the USD vulnerable be used for illegal activities. It's don't much different from the bitcoin that could be used for illegal and legal activities.

I agree, currencies have been used to fuel illegal activities and even war. the government created currencies to be used by everyone and use it as a trading tool but the cons. of it came after that. I think bitcoin is already have been used in many illegal transactions, just think of the features that bitcoins offers, don't you think those features doesn`t attract criminals?. I'm sorry to say but bitcoin is already a part of illegal trade industry, which is sad!.

Not only USD, every country's local currency were used into illegal activities. Based upon the ease of usage people prefer different currency upon their convenience. Bitcoin and other digital currencies which existed as an alternate solution for illegal needs which soon got used by most as a main stream source for illegal transactions. But even now the use of USD is more than that of bitcoin into illegal business comparatively.

Yes, you could say that it is being used for such actions, however since the appearance of bitcoin every one wants to use because they are less likely to get traceable because it is pseudo anonymous, before they used USD and the regulations can track them down if they do use a lot of susceptible incomes, and now with bitcoin it is hard.

Yes I agree with you that USD is being used for illegal activities but Bitcoin also used for illegal activities. Bitcoin is more easier to use for illegal activity than USD.

I think all of fiat and crypto's can be used on illegal activities I mean it doesn't matter what type of money you are using as long as it can pay what they want to buy or the things that they need,
then they will surely use it I mean specially this bitcoin cause of it's anonymity

All currencies are used for ilegal activities, there is no a big difference between fiat or crypto currencies at all. People are the one that has the choise where they wanna and will use their money for and at where. Soo its interesting media were always reporting bitcoin as dark currencie because silk road, when all know fiat does have same business.

Lol, I don't know what is the relation of bitcoin being used in illegal activities with USD being used to illegal activities.  As far as I know they are different currency though we believe that all currency are used in illegal activity, even my local currency is being used in drug trafficking, gun smuggling and money laundering, so I think USD is more exploited in terms of illegal activities.

Any criminal use any currency which he require for a particular place suppose a person is doing any illegal activity in places where USD is easily used then he will use USD and if he is doing any illegal activity in places where euro is easily used then he will use Euro. So any currency can be used by them unless the governments take action against them.

USD used many illegal activities I think because it is main currency in the world to be the benchmark currency of the countries in the world, so widely spread. USD it became many used for illegal activities like terrorism and illegal war because of its spread widely so that it can be reached by people who are not responsible. The use USD for legal or illegal activity actually depends on each person who uses that can not be avoided and unruly spread.
That's right, currency is basically a tool and don't have an intelligence so even some currencies being used for illegal activities it's can't be concluded as those currencies were getting involved into crimes and after that it's prohibited, some media sometimes just too hypocrite and always making the images of their opponent looks bad by spreading bad news about it,but at the end it's just a currency
Everything is being used for illegal activities even if it is currencies or not. For easier trades, most of the people choose currencies to involve in illegal activities. In the future, Bitcoin will be soon used for illegal purposes such as USD is being used right now.

Its done at every currency and I think that we cannot simply say that its only happening at one currency because that is just so not true.

So any currency can be used by them unless the governments take action against them.

US dollar is accepted in almost everywhere in this planet, so international crimes and illegal activities can be financed by  US dollar. But why would we use US dollar if we are only doing small time illegal activity if we are criminals? I'd rather use local currency if I am a criminal, for convenience. Big time criminals who operates in different countries are the ones using  US dollar since it could be their tool to escape.

Cannot agree more, this can not be stopped at anytime and will always occur no matter what happens with a currency.

Rather than looking at the percentage of Bitcoins used for illegal purchases to the total number of Bitcoins circulating, you must look at the absolute value of BTC used for drug purchases. I am sure that it is only a small fraction of the same for USD.

USD is the most popular currency of the world and is almost accepted in most of the countries of the world. therefore there is always a chance that bitcoin may be used for both good as well as for illegal activities in all over the world.

If people are using bitcoin instead of USD to do illegal things then that would put bitcoin in danger now because Donald Trump might seize all the bitcoins.

But nowadays I am seeing that USD is used more in illegal activities than bitcoin because for running bitcoin a user will require a good knowledge about digital system while for them using USD for illegal activities is not hard because USD is known by everyone in every corner of the world even without technology USD can be transferred to any corner of the world.
