Certainly, and you do know for a fact that it is being used heavily in smuggling, theft and other illegal and shady activities--in some cases, the government themselves partake in. Also, illegal activities and whatnot aren't constrained to just USD; even btc is being used for these illegal activities too.

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
i think he will study bitcoin from the core and if he find it as beneficial for them then he will also give good support to bitcoin. we can hope that very soon he will give a good decision about the future of bitcoin.

Very true and it is not today tgat people started using the US dollars for illegalities. It's been existing but since the blockchain technology was introduced I think the American government is getting concerned about the possibility of bad people using Bitcoin/USD to perpetuate illegality. So it's possible.

All the currencies are used for illegal activities especially US dollar as it is the global currency and is accepted world wide irrespective of caste,colour,nation.In india,they tried to ban high value currencies to stop black money and money laundering,but it failed to deliver the results.Preventive steps should be taken to prevent illegal activities and not to ban currencies.


Yes, every currency is being used for the evil, that is why I think dishonest media should stop saying bad things about Bitcoin. Bitcoin isn't the currency of thieves, it's just a currency used for every kind of things like dollar or any other. The problem is not the money, the problem is not material unanimated things, the problem is the people behavior.

Welcome to Earth.

Are you kidding? USD (along with every other currency) is just currency. For as long as there have been and will be people doing illegal things, there will be a USD, a EUR, a GBP, a YEN, a YUAN being spent to fund it.

USD is the much used currency for all sort of illegal needs. When bitcoin is compared, the USD used for illegal needs is very huge. Now bitcoin has given an easy access for the illegal needs due to the anonymity as well gambling industry has benefited much through it.

to me i think not only USD but every currency of the world may be use for illegal activities. so we can say that some  criminal people will be using bitcoin for illegla activities. but i think there is no fault of any currency.

Certainly, and you do know for a fact that it is being used heavily in smuggling, theft and other illegal and shady activities--in some cases, the government themselves partake in. Also, illegal activities and whatnot aren't constrained to just USD; even btc is being used for these illegal activities too.

That is the sad reality that all forms of government must face and accept. There are no government that is existing in this world that is not corrupt. Corruption is rooted in the society and even exists in the family. Illegal activities cannot be also stopped since the runners are government officials and other government personnel who are high in ranks down to the lower ranks. As long as there is evil in society all forms of fiat currency including US dollar is prone to be used in illegal activities.

Sure, every currency is being used in illegal activities. It can be bitcoins, USD, euro or any other currency.  Its the people who make use of these currencies in an illegal way and there fore the people should be blamed for that and not the currency itself.

That is always our preference on how we spend our money, we have the freedom so we all have the liberty to spend it, however we need to understand that there are laws when violated will go after us. If you are making illegal activities, expect that any time soon you will be caught and eventually be arrested, there is no perfect crime and it's better to make money in the safest way that a faster way which will compromise your future.

In fact, the US government can always track the illegal movement of dollars. I think that they do so. Gather dirt on the corrupt politicians and get them their desired solutions. To catch corrupt Americans is not profitable. First, it could undermine confidence in the dollar, the corrupt, and it is a very large amount, and secondly the money stolen in other countries and working for the us economy.

some people out there definitely use usd for illegal transactions. well, I think has a lot to do it. in fact, sometimes they also use bitcoin. but, I guess they will not be able to stop it, although their efforts did really great. because sometimes that they do in secret.

Oh yea, especially when they're paying in cash. People are using shell companies, laundering money through casino tokens. There are many ways to do it you can even pay a poor, homeless guy to make a bank account and give you the card, so that you can use an ATM to withdraw cash and disappear.
USD is being used for illegal stuff as we speak.

Yes it is very much possible, Actually, in all country this things was also happened to their place. but most of the time now bitcoin is being use to this type of illegal transaction, because maybe others know that bitcoin was not 100% anonymous, instead, bitcoin was pseudonymous. Though, bitcoin is not designed for illegal activities purposes.

It seems to me that you are mistaken. In order to use bitcoin in illegal activities you still have to exchange it into local currency. From now on, no privacy for the criminal no. So it seems to me that the stories of complete privacy online is a myth.

You are wrong, there fore to show you how many users don’t know anything about the dark side of the bitcoin even though they use it every day, there is a part of the internet that normal people don’t use and can’t access via normal browsers and that is the dark net.

It is mostly used for all sort of illegal stuff, anything bad that you can think off is available for purchase there and what they use is not regular money, they use bitcoin so they can hide their tracks between the animality of the internet and the normal bitcoin transactions.

No, You might see some of the news if the bitcoin is used on the darknet. And I think if that will be linked to the illegal activities without the need to exchange your bitcoin into the local currency.

The bitcoin have some aspects are supporting the truth about the used by the dark marketplace. The anonymous is the key in this case.

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.
Crime originated from The mind of man and not currencies! Currencies either USD, GPB, Bitcoin and even eth are not the cause of Criminality but evil thoughts from the mind of men. Any currency are being used for illegal action, many are saying bitcoin is being used to fund terrorism because of it decentralized nature and op is now saying USD is being used for illegal activities.
