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.

It is probably better to use cash or gold with illegal activities because they are not as easily traced. It seems like there is much work to hide bitcoin transactions and it opens the door for mistakes. It seems that even if the final transaction is mixed, that all the other transactions might be preserved somehow on other accounts.  Imagine how many people might have kept a record of their transactions for other purposes along the chain to that final transaction. That's a whole pile of leads there and probably more than one snitch in the group.

The type of currency is rather irrelevant. Anything that has widespread value can be used to fund illegal activities, and more, should be expected to be doing so. USD, Euro, Yen, btc, gold, diamonds, drugs, etc. The medium is fungible, criminals will be criminals. The currency doesn't make them so.

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.

How exactly do you think you would go about "seizing" all the bitcoins? The ledger is decentralized, so there is no way to shut it down. Seizing bitcoins would require the confiscation of the hard drives that contain private keys to public addresses. And that also assumes that those hard drives have the only copy of the private keys. In short, there's no easy or feasible way to accomplish bitcoin seizures.

how do you know that USD is using for illegal activities, its look like that you yourself engage in such activities because no one will like expose his illegal  activities. and the second is that way only USD or bitcoin is using for illegal activities while there are so many other popular currencies in the world. to me those counties where the illegal activities are more as compare to other countries those countries currencies will be using as more for illegal activities.

I think donald trump would not do it, after all, if they did ban on bitcoin. it does not impact too much on bitcoin, because users can still use bitcoin although even prohibited.

I see more and more articles of the USD being used for illegal activities, such as funding of terrorists and unconstitutional, illegal wars, funding of wars that cause severe infringement of civil liberties like the war on drugs, among other things. I am pretty sure that when goons smash into convenience stores and steal stuff, then the money they probably steal is USD, which makes it criminal currency. Also, I am pretty sure that the baseball bats that majority of the goons have bought were paid for by the USD.

Also, most people collect rain water, drink raw milk, and throw cannabis seeds in soil, all three acts which are considered serious illegal felonies punishable by seriously expensive fines and extensive jail time, possibly life in prison.

Some people also walk, drive, fish, or hunt without a permit that can easily be bought for in USD.
 
Will this hurt USD in the long run? Will governments ban this just like they started to do with paying in cash for some services to harden the use of illegal activities, and money laundering?
Of course yes! All of currency are use at illegal activities like gambling buying drugs etc. All currency's are guilty for that. That question have an obvious answer. All cyrrency are guilty for using it in illegal activities. Because if you will use illegal activities the money is involved, so that is automatic that all currency's are use in illegal activities.

The accurate definition is, it is not up to the currency but up to the one who uses the currency. All currencies are use for illegal activities and in fact, fiat are mostly use especially paper money because it has lesser trail compared to bitcoin where there is a public ledger that is very transparent.

to avoid illegal actions I prefer USD. because of the movement and spread of currency USD more secure and controlled.
while bitcoin is more risky because it is anonymouse so many people who use it for illegal actions.

to avoid illegal actions I prefer USD. because of the movement and spread of currency USD more secure and controlled.
while bitcoin is more risky because it is anonymouse so many people who use it for illegal actions.
Well it really doesnt matter when it comes to people doing illegal activities. Of course they will use all available resources for there ventures be it cryptocurrency or the dollar. They should be able to take advantage of bitcoin's features but ultimately, the results would all be in dollars.

They can use bitcoin for illegal activities but our exchange sites now are already requiring us to comply with the KYC policy, we have to submit all information. We might not be under the radar of the government for a while but once you will be under investigation, it would be easy for them to trace your transaction. Never convert your bitcoin into fiat if you do not want to be trace.

Yes it is very possible that USD can be used for illegal activites, this also happening in the different country. So other nation is was creating a law about this matter, maybe some are giving them a ban once they've found out caught in the act. Even bitcoin can be used for legal and illegal transactions therefore same thing with USD dollar.

Euro is more suitable than USD for illegal activities. Since there are 500euro papers which hold a lotmore value than 100$. To answer your question, of course it is being used for illegal activities. It doesn't make USD guilty. USD is the most common currency around the world, thw most liquid... That's why terrorists choose USD over everything else.

It's true. Here a 500€ papers can be exchanged for 520€ in street and we don't have problem to find someone to exchange. It's more convenient for the criminals, they find several advantages with it. For exemple it's more easy to transport 100k€ with 500€ than with 10-20-50€. But not easy to get one 500€ paper, we have to fill paper at the bank and wait like a week to get it. The truth is you look really suspicious asking for a 500€ paper. And so far i have never see any, only 100 and 200€ and they are also rare to see

Actually, all currency in the whole word can be use in in any illegal activities of each country. That's other country are giving any restriction about creating a law about it, not USD only..

It's definitely wrong ffs, USD is far more untraceable than bitcoin which have blockchain and every outgoing transaction was recorded and there's no way to delete this. The USD itself ain't got GPS to detect and there's no way to control it directly. Bitcoin itself doesn't trigger criminality because of its pseudo-anonymous feature but the criminality itself take advantage of bitcoin instead of other currency. Even if bitcoin doesn't exist, I'm sure the criminalities still exist.

USD is used for illegal activities of course man, what do you think ? They pay their drugs or prostitutes with a candy ? Remember USD is the most used currency internationnaly to buy/trade anything. When they are dealing, thy don't talk about the price using the Zimbabwe currency !

As we all know that USD is one of the major currency on the world which means it is really important and value is high compared on most currencies which is on commonsense thing that they are definitely used on illegal activities since we do know usd is money and does have value which means anything you can do anything about it either legal or illegal.

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.

Really? Can Donald Trumph seize ALL the bitcoin? he has the power to manipulate the decentralize bitcoin? I guess this is impossible to happen mate, I think he can ban btc to their country but not ALL bitcoin world wide, no one can unless it is shut down by the developer.

Trump will never ban Bitcoin because he does not care about advanced technology. I'd rather working with paper than computer. Therefore, Bitcoin will continue to exist in the USA for at least 10 years. I doubt that a government can ban Bitcoin right now because the people will not like this idea very much. There will be protest

Are you believing it? I don't believe it. trump can ban the btcoin anytime they want. But I think not for this time because the blockchain system offering the future database for all of the parties. and promising improvements.
