If the USD is being used for illegal activities is a yes and no doubt about it, its already in the news since long ago that people are also using USD to do illegal activities. Since the USD is one of the most powerful currency that you can use for any trade be it local or international its not a surprise that individuals or groups who do illegal things will have their eyes focus on the USD since it's much easier to use and exchange.

You can do anything with the usd.Bad or good its up to you.Anything is possible with the usd.Its an international currency so its not that hard to do some illegal activities.People do illegal activities because they get bigger profit.
Thats not the case. It is slightly different. If any govt finds out that person or company is using their currency for wrong reasons, committing a felony, anti-national activities then they seal the property and bank accounts of that person or company. Thus effectively stopping further influence. As far as cash is concerned then a country will seize that. If found guilty action can be taken against it.
In this case, illegal USD in multiple international bank accounts gets frozen by US govt with help of interpol. US govt stops transfer of money to other forms if they get information beforehand.
USD is a currency and if pointing out that it was used in illegal activities maybe yes..
but remember all currency in the world can be use in illegal activities so all currency is no way out if it was used in illegal activities.

Well you can be assured that it is used. These bad people would take advantage of anything that may benefit them regardless of what or who suffers. Even bitcoin can and most likely is already being used in these activities so how much more for a mainstream fiat currency like the dollar

It depends on the way to using of user, you can not blame this is the fault of Dollar, Bitcoin or any currency. Dollar and Bitcoin are good at beginning, but by the way using of user, these currency have changed and help criminal do the crime.

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?


The simple fact is that all the illegal items you enumerated has no negative effect or impact on USD.

The explanation as to why USD is used or preferred in these illegal or even legitimate transactions is that it has high value and when local fiat I'd converted to USD to be used for transactions, it makes it compacted and comfortable to be carried about without suspicion.

On the contrary, this role played by USD is currently being taken over by bitcoin because of its high value also. Fiat are these days converted to bitcoin to be carried on just a mobile gadget like a mere phone. Shaking my head.  Grin
It totally depend on the user how he uses his money and if USD is being used in illegal activities there is no fault of dollar in it, people will do illegal things until proper check and balanced system will implemented by cyber security and once a safe system is implemented then there will be no chance to misuse any currency so wait till that time.
I agree to that. We cannot do things about it because it is just the people who uses USD or other currency in transacting in illegal things and they should not do it because it is not a good thing but if they will keep continue doing it then we should stay away from them so we will prevent the possible influence from them and we should always remember that we should do things in legal and good way.
Yes and I think this is only US dollars that mostly used for terrorist activities in the world, because no other currency is acceptable all over the world except dollar. Therefore the use of dollars is much in these illegal activities. Dollars are also used for money laundering because if someone wants to send money to other country with illegal means he use dollars because of the acceptance all over the world.
That is the downfall for the USD because it is a universal currency and almost all the things can be paid in USD and the transaction for illegal activities can be done in using USD also and that is why USD is the most used currency in illegal activities but lets be honest that the bitcoin is also one of the way of transacting illegal things because of the anonymity but overall, all the currencies even it is crypto or fiat are already been used in illegal activities.
It is true the value of the USD  was very high and it was being use for the payment and the money taking but as you said it is being as an illegal way so it is very sad indeed people are having a lot of the expectation and the money of the USD is getting down, I think this is not about the currency and the money but the people who are using this in the other way, it s very important to have the bitcoin ad then try to use it instead of the USD as an investment.

Well it is not all about USD or any currency, some people tend to make crimes because they are posses by the dark motives influenced by the bad guys. Any currency can be use in illegal activities either it is transparent or not; for wanting to be more powerful and get their ambitions. Like in China, where illegal drugs is coming from so it is not only USD is being used in these cases.

Every money is being used in the world for illegal activities. the reason why USD is being commonly used in Illegal activities is because of it availability and popularity. i dont think any money is being used more than USD in making transaction dollar is a common household money name. everybody know dollar and how to get it when its needed compare to other foreign currency like EURO and Pounds Sterling

Definitely USD is being used for illicit activities as it is the most widely accepted currency so it is the easiest to exchange anywhere in the world. But government don't do anything about that, but it fear bitcoin because it can't control it nor tax it.

This is not the fault of USD, it totally depend on the user who is using it and those who are using it illegal will sooner behind the bars and government is keeping check on all the accounts and now culprits are worrying about this action plan and few days back bitcoin payment was also under discussion that it is also being used in illegal work answer is simple a knife can be used for cutting apple as well as for throat.

Yes, USD has got its own importance as well value based on the entire capital volume. This has lead usd to be the top used fiat for majority of illegal activities. Recently bitcoin has been used as an source due to few of its features making it more easy for such kind of activities.

all currencies are being used for illegal activities. this is real. Let's accept this. it's just a difference that the USD is a currency that dominates the financial market all over the world. the United States of America is a country that shows its presence all over the world. The universal language of English is the universal currency in usd, which is the American currency. it is playing a leading role in illegal activities than other currencies.

Of course USD is used for illegal activities , and in fact the most illegal activities, crimes are funded by USD worldwide. Bitcoin still not yet known by the most of people around the world, so criminals and terrorists still use fiat currencies, like USD for their illegal activities.

Yes it is! It is used to buy guns for wars, it is used by the Federal Reserve when it prints a ton for the benefit of themselves at the expense of somebody else.

Correct and also not only USD is being used on illegal activities but also on all currencies of the world because we do know that it has value then anytime it can really be used on these kind of stuffs and as you said not all criminals or syndicates do have knowledge about bitcoin which for now fiat money will be always be used on these kind of transactions which we can say that this is just really a normal stuff to be asked.

I think every currency in the world is being used for illegal activities. Maybe USD seems to be dealing with it more because they're getting busted more relative to the others.

Hm....I don't think there's a currency out there being dealt into illegal activities. Anything worth a great deal of value is likely to fall into that category.

Indeed. There are lots of currencies that have already existed before and USD is one of those which are used into illegal doings in which USD is used to buy terrorist equipments, drug paraphernalia, etc. The usage of currencies vary on the type of individual in which they use it on any thing they want to use and capable of damages in the society.

If the USD is being used for illegal activities is a yes and no doubt about it, its already in the news since long ago that people are also using USD to do illegal activities. Since the USD is one of the most powerful currency that you can use for any trade be it local or international its not a surprise that individuals or groups who do illegal things will have their eyes focus on the USD since it's much easier to use and exchange.

You can do anything with the usd.Bad or good its up to you.Anything is possible with the usd.Its an international currency so its not that hard to do some illegal activities.People do illegal activities because they get bigger profit.
Thats not the case. It is slightly different. If any govt finds out that person or company is using their currency for wrong reasons, committing a felony, anti-national activities then they seal the property and bank accounts of that person or company. Thus effectively stopping further influence. As far as cash is concerned then a country will seize that. If found guilty action can be taken against it.
In this case, illegal USD in multiple international bank accounts gets frozen by US govt with help of interpol. US govt stops transfer of money to other forms if they get information beforehand.
Yes i really believe that USD is being used by illegal activities because it is a money and not only usd even all kinds of currency in the world that signifies an asset, for money is hot and that is the reason why the world is busy and there are some people wanted to earn big in a quick an easy way and that is the illegal activities and speaking of illegal activities it includes gambling, smuggling, mafia games and other crime accessory.

Hm....I don't think there's a currency out there being dealt into illegal activities. Anything worth a great deal of value is likely to fall into that category.

Any currency that has a value can be use for illegal activities so it's not with the money but with the users who are thinking
of using USD as a tool to run their illegal transactions. Cryptocurrencies can also be use for illegal transactions so there is no difference.

Well it is not all about USD or any currency, some people tend to make crimes because they are posses by the dark motives influenced by the bad guys. Any currency can be use in illegal activities either it is transparent or not; for wanting to be more powerful and get their ambitions. Like in China, where illegal drugs is coming from so it is not only USD is being used in these cases.
Is there any currency that cannot even be used for illegal activity ?

That is the reason I always wonder why a lot of people sometimes do say Bitcoin will promote illegal activities. Even before the invention of cryptocurrency, illegal activities have always been on and it totally depends on the dark motives of the person involves as you said.

Currency is for transaction purposes and if someone with such motives in the US or in any other country apparently wants to make some dark transactions, currency absolutely must be involved.

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?


The simple fact is that all the illegal items you enumerated has no negative effect or impact on USD.

The explanation as to why USD is used or preferred in these illegal or even legitimate transactions is that it has high value and when local fiat I'd converted to USD to be used for transactions, it makes it compacted and comfortable to be carried about without suspicion.

On the contrary, this role played by USD is currently being taken over by bitcoin because of its high value also. Fiat are these days converted to bitcoin to be carried on just a mobile gadget like a mere phone. Shaking my head.  Grin
Well, for me, all currencies are being used for illegal activities, and not only USD or Bitcoin as some would say. The only thing I would say makes Bitcoin seem like the worst is because the people behind such activities can hardly be traced, and it also makes things easy for them.
