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.
Well it doesn't really matter what currency is being used. The dollar is pretty much the same as euro or yuan or whatever currency. Illegal activities are done internationally so i think its not that much exclusive to the dollar.

Indeed true, saying currency as convict for crime is not justified.

It is not that person is doing crime with baseball bat because it is sold for USD. I live in India, me buying baseball ball with rupee will be justified? Cheesy
I don't think, currency will be affected in any way due to its illegal use till it is fiat currency of country. However, conservatives might try banning anonymous currencies like Bitcoin on the name of crime!  Undecided

It doesn't matter currency form to do such activities. I believe currency is just something which has value and rights to buy something of equal value/weightage. Currency no matter is USD or any other form it can buy those things it's just where are you standing on earth whether is it east side or west side of hemisphere. Each form of currency can be traded anywhere. One can buy things with euro or inr or usd in any country as there are hundreds of ways to do it. So in my opinion it is not the only which is illegal or does it only the one which we can put finger on  Smiley

The dollar is used for criminal activities because the dollar is an internationnal currency wich everyone use to sell/Trade ect internationnally. So yep the dollar is part of this crimminal activity, but it's surely not the only one.... and can't be blamed for this either...

Once asked the question, what will be done with bitcoin, if there will be substitutions in criminal activity. So if the dollar is fine, then bitcoin will not suffer. But only the dollar is controlled at full capacity and there is no bitcoin.

The dollar is used for international criminal activity because it is lightweight, non metallic, fits in small places, and is accepted almost everywhere in the world. Fiat, no matter where it comes from, will always be the ultimate choice of criminals world over. Cash tells no tales, and there is no blockchain to stand evident. Once it's done, it's done.

Even if it’s not the dollar that’s being used, as long as it is something that has value, criminal and illegal activities are going to continue. Heck, even gold or other commodities can be used. All these for the love of money. These people are always going to find ways to keep their businesses going and with whatever resources they can get hold of, be it the dollar, bitcoin, and other sort of stuff that has value.

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?

I think criminal activity will not hurt USD in the long run. It may even strengthen it as it creates demand for the currency. If governments find a way to curb the use of their national currency in illegal activities, they will do it.

All of the fiat or even the cryptocurrency are being used or can be used in doing illegal activities because they are money and money can be use everywhere and especially in bitcoin because of its anonymity feature then it is being abused by the criminals and using it as another layer of their security and that is how the image of bitcoin is getting worse just because of the criminals.

There are a lot of posts in this thread saying that Bitcoin is being used for illegal activities because it provides anonymity, but in fact if you are not paying with Credit Card and use some other precautions cash provides you more anonymity than Bitcoin does. So yes, USD being used and will always be used for illegal activities, like any other cash.

And I agree that the journalists emphasizing that Bitcoin is being used for illegal activities are just showing their incompetence.

It seems to me that this is a deliberate provocation against bitcoin. Those who say that it is used for money laundering forget to say that the dollars for this purpose, use more often.

All of the currency is being used for illegal activity, now even Bitcoin. It is nowadays natural that currencies/money will be used for illegal activities or illegally. And USD being more recognized currency in this world, it is usually used more for illegal activities.

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

Yes, I do agreed on you mate. Perhaps, this kind of a problem are also facing it in all nations in the planet. as long as there is illegal activities happening in their place it should be ban or make a law about this things in each country. Because if this things can't be resolve it will be a shameful image for the country of course.

What kind of question it is?
Any currency from around the world is or can be used for illegal activities.
I guess bitcoins are also used for illegal activities as it is anonymous somehow.

I am just a promoter of websites/coins. I do not force you to invest in anything also I do not recommend I am not responsible if you invest in any of it. I am paid for promotions and I only promote it. If you think I am promoting a ponzi scheme please PM me with a solid proof that they are running a ponzi scheme or something else so, I can stop there advertisement/promotion.

Yes. Every known currency is being used for illegal activities at certain times. There was a research about cocaine over dollar bills... almost every single bill have traces.

The fiat currencies are more used then crypto coins, even knowing the silk road keeps with some good volume and they work with altcoins at their deals. There is no way to control and stop those ilegal activities, because you can put into the jaill all people selling, others will replace them since there are buyers.

What's even wrong. Are you patriot of US or what. Of course usd will be used for illegal activities as there isn't any currency in this world which isn't being used for illegal purpose. Now the introduction of these crypto currencies it will surely be used for illegal purpose in the future. And can't you see the president of us is itself doing illegal activity by building a useless wall...

Is useless for you to reforce the frontiers against illegal invaders and thieves? It doesn't sound patriotic for me or logic, even not being a USA citizen... Anyway the money isn't being used for illegal activities on this situation. Who is using money for illegal activities is who is invading USA by this spot where there will be a useless wall soon...  Wink
