For me it has a possibility that USD can be used up for illegal activities. Because such as terrorist create and use this money on anything they wanted. Unless, someone can detect and stop this bad activity.
In fact all currency in the world was used in different criminal activities, maybe USD is included in this some illegal transactions. Even bitcoin have a risks and there's a possibility that in the future, bitcoin value was used by the terrorist to buy some items that they used in war. Because if we analyze all terrorist are a lot of connection in different part of the world.


Every thing is possible in this World.I agree this blindly.Because with the fact I had seen,I had come to this conclusion.So,it's possible to make use of dollar in Illegal activity.Why not dollars? Even a Bitcoin is possible.
When something has got good in it, surely it will have its negative part. Even if something is developed for good deed, surely people try to find the loop hole and tries to hinder and use upon necessity. Same is the fact with bitcoin, it gives the ease in access for illegal transactions,though usd is the one that's been used for illegal activities.
Right. There is nothing with an advantage that does not have its disadvantages as well, at least as far as I know. The mind of humans, most especially those who have made themselves the evil doers, will always find a way through everything. Not only USD, but other currencies have been used for illegal activities and I do not see how even bitcoin or other cryptos would be different.
Yeah, as long as they want to have a tool to help their crime transaction, I do not think they will not have currency for their transaction if they do not know Bitcoin and cryptocurrency.
In history, before we have FIAT, the criminal used Gold for their crime, therefore, even we do not have cryptocurrency, they still use other currency or payment method to commit a crime.
I agree to that. There is no need to pin point for a currency to be used in illegal activities because if they will be using money to complete their illegal activity then they will find a way to accomplish that. USD,Bitcoin are just two of the most commonly used currency to finish illegal activities.

given how long it has been used yea
and it is controlled by corrupt "officials"
so yea on a daily basis
This is true, paper money is usually use for illegal activities as it is hard to trace, so it's important that big transactions
should be done on online transaction so there will be a trace and with that we need a more secured and transparent system which is non other than bitcoin.

United states dollar is really being used for illegal activities but rather I'll state that cash is getting used for unlawful activities. You can't say that only USD has been used for unlawful activities because all currency can be used to purchase unlawful issues and do illegal functions, all can be used in bribing and in doing bad actions in the end cash is the root of bad. On individuals unlawful actions the main purpose I believe is to buy more money so all currency has been used for unlawful actions.
Yes, it is used for illegal activities and is also used for legal and good purposes. It greatly or fully depend on the user that how is he using the money because every thing have a positive use and also a negative use. If someone is using dollar for  good purpose or to fulfill his need, then it is a positive use but if he is doing some illegal work with it, then it is its negative use.

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?
In my opinion, a person in dire need for money that resorts to doing illegal acts will accept any currency. As long as it will satisfy their need. It is not limited to USD alone.

Yes we need more secured and transparent system in our money so that the government easily traced the illegal activities that may happen in their country. Security is needed in order to live safely and protect those people.

Exactly, any medium that has value can be use in illegal activities, including products that has value, they can be use to bribe anyone. But it's hard to conceal those bulky objects so money and precious metals is the easier one to use.

Absolutely usd being used for illegal activities. Before a few years ago, people didnt know anything cryptoworld and payment systems.

That's true, but still it doesn't damage the reputation of dollars/money.

If you're aware in the real world, You have no hesitation to say that USD is being used for many illegal activities. Not only USD but all of kinds of money is being used for legal activities. Many people are using these money to look for some members of their team and these teams are doing illegal such as hijacking, carnapping and many more. And the best reason of it is, the money is too high.

The price is simply too high

Yes. The price is too high and this is the reason why many people doing illegal activities. In the same situation, many people are attracted to high value of money and they tend to do illegal activities.

Not only USD but almost all currencies also being used for illegal activities and of course that illegal activities is really secret and only few people know it. Even online currency like paypal, perfect money, bitcoin and other crypto currency also can being used for illegal activities.

I feel that this question asked by a 10 yr old. This should be slapped in the face of bitcoin anti- supporters that always count bitcoin's mistreatments but could not see how US dollars used to fund major crimes like terrrorism.

All possibilities are there, as we have witnessed recent terror attack in USA, USD might be using illegally.
Not only in USA even all around the world, is dollar being used in terrorist activities. In many countries like Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries they all are being affected by terrorist activities and only dollar is the main back support for them. Even dollar is used in all drugs, money exchangers, human trafficking all around the globe and much unethical activities.

It surely is, in the first place it is a currency, a legal currency which is used by most of the people. So i have no doubt that it is being used on illegal activities and I think , most of the currencies are also too. And it is normal, but obviously wrong. The fault is not on the currency but the people who are doing such things. So there's no need to ban a currency because it is being used as what it is.

Yes. Money and other forms of currency are being used in illegal activites. Power hungry and corrupt human are easily drawn by fast profit in any form. The government can trace it with all their capabilities but for them it is not worth.

However, the fact is Bitcoin and cryptocurrency are helping the criminal complete their crime transaction easilier than FIAT.
Other digital currencies are also controlled by the third services.
So, they can't use digital currencies for their transaction, instead, they choose cryptocurrency to keep safe their transaciton and avoid the government tracking their transaction.

I think it is quite difficult to do for example when some people want to buy a luxury house is not possible everybody should bring hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.
crime will be more prevalent because people know that some services have to use cash money. it is just my response.
