i think it's very possible, teroris have highest technology to mixing his money at bank without any trail, and untraceble.
i think people can buy anything use usd, the illegal activity with usd is very possible


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?

goverment must ban any illegal activity, he must freeze the bank account of terorism
This is a satire thread m8, this is referencing all the threads where people concern-troll about "oh BTC is used in illegal terrorist activities" and it's not supposed to be taken literally.

Of course a government is going to try and stop illegal activities, it's not like that's anything new.

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?

Good question. I think we need more positive publicity for USD or otherwise people will not use it and then when it will be abandoned the price of 1 USD will be 1 Satoshi like for any worthless shitcoin.

For the time being we can say that is definitely used for many illegal activities and it is better to be careful with it or even avoid using it at all. </sarcasm>  Smiley

thats true, all the fiat currencies are used for illegal activities and we cannot do anything about that, even the money printing should be illegal in my opinion because of the inflation it causes to be honest

however bitcoins are used for illegal stuff too to be honest, there are a lot of shops in the deepweb that allows bitcoins as a payment method and people buy illegal stuff for bitcoins then

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.

Yes the dollar is used by criminals and for its activities its logical, the question is which currency is not used for criminal activities.
I think that we cannot stop this and that this will always be like this, its just the world..

All types of currency and gold can be used for illegal activities. If you ban a certain currency, then they will just use a different currency. The best thing is to track the money an communications as best as you can.

I do think that Bitcoin is somewhat being used for illegal activities but this goes for everyone online currency because you just cannot control it as good.
But there are also allot of people that make use of Bitcoin in a normal way without doing anything criminal related.

Well because USD is the currency used for every country to trade.  It is the base of all.  It is like all commodities price worldwide depend on the price of USD.  I do not think that the government will ban it simply because it was used for illegal transactions.  Any money can be used for illegal things, USD was mostly used because it is the currency of the world.  And as long as people have evil minds to become rich quick and greedy, any currency or bitcoins will be used for their illegal transactions.

Billions of people daily using USD for billions of purposes which also includes illegal activities. A currency is not at all responsible for how it is being used because money flow hand to hand and it may reach to the hands of scammers /abusers too. Similarly bitcoin has no difference from USD and being used by all types of people.

All of the currency will be used for illegal activities especially US dollar. Because we all know that this is mainly usd money can buy and spend anywhere in the world where you are . So do not wonder if it used to be illegal. The bitcoin will also be used for illegal activities. And any currency can be used for illegal it depend where country you are.

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?

Any currency are been used to any illegal activities aslong it is not fake and acceptable by any banks, and if you travel in different countries well you can see really that they are using their currency to buy those illegaly forbidden by the law. And thats the reason why my conclusion is this since currencies are powerfull and it can make the good to be worst.
Offcourse also us dollars being used for illegal activities just like the bitcoin because every person have some bad things and illegal things where they used money for/

Bro, illegal activity is done with EVERY currency. In the 60', 70' and 80's USD was used very much to finance spionage, warfare, terrorism, and any illegal activity you dream. People were not interest in Rubles, Pesos or any small currency... Every AK-47 traded (without US presence) was sold by dollar, like every Katyusha or every Herstal gun. US dollar dominate the surface and in the under world. It could look weird but even when the money is in the otherside of the world it could be changed by USD so, indirectly the USD is used by illegal since it's the most accepted currency in the world. You can travel to the most underground place in Latin America or in Africa that you will see things been sold by USD.

It is an serious issue and this is not only limited to usd. There are some big money transferring rackets like havala where one can transfer money from one country to another without paying legal charges and fees so in other words, it’s illegal funds transfer racket. I am worried about the future of bitcoin and other crypto currencies because we can’t control the use of it and thus it might be misused for illegal purpose so not only usd but no currency is safe.

If we say No then we are lying because for ilegal activities is being used everything and mostly any currency so is bitcoin and so is usd, we can't decide which isn't being used for these activities but based what we read and what we see, we can say that it is used.

Anything or any form of currency can be used for both legal and illegal activities. So yes USD is also being used for illegal activities and it is almost impossible to stop all illegal activities so banning the currency will not be good way to reduce the currency related crimes. Same goes for bitcoin, stopping or banning bitcoin will not reduce the criminal activity associated or thought to be associated with bitcoin.
