ofcourse it is being used but that doesot exactly is about usd its just the people need to use money and the country they are accepts usd so it is beimg used for illigal activitys. anyway hacking and scamming is not new to us they are very old and we are still facing them
Almost every currency is being used for illegal activities world wide. The benefits of using a currency is not solely dependent for what purpose it is being used. People do use USD for their transactions, they want to do. Not just because of easiness of using USD but they are using it for the need of having some currency. Same thing is applicable for bitcoin too.

USD is if I am not wrong the currency that is most used in criminal activities. Even criminals in europe and asia use the dollar in their criminal activities. F.e. if they sell drugs item they want payment in USD. There is no currency in the world which has so many transaction with the US dollar.

US dollar is accepted world wide in every trade possible be it legal or illegal ,i have seen some comments regarding euro being more valued than dollar and so it is used for illegal activity if that is the case they could use Bahraini Dinar as it is the most valuable currency in the world,the problem is you cannot deal with bahraini dinar world wide as easily as the american dollar.

If someone found a currencie that isnt being used for ilegal activities let me know, fiat, crypto, online, real life, the same way we can choose between act right or wrong the fiat has those two faces, and there is no way to stop it, countries try to control it without sucess, those people are strong and build their business that way.

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. The currency doesn't make them so.

criminals use any currency which they find easily in their area for to do any illegal activity. and even some people who are not criminals but sometimes use their money in illegal places like to spend in casino while it is ban in their country and to spend on drugs. So it is not matter that what currency will they prefer but they will use which they will find easily.

And I think paper money are the easiest currency to use in illegal activities as there are no trail of transactions once you hand it over the money to the transacting party, online transaction can easily be trace and even bitcoin because of the linkages of accounts that will direct to a certain exchange sites.

Well the dollar is basically the general currency that we're using so definitely it's what people use for illegal activities most of the time. Although, some are already aware and are using other online currencies,  as of now the local currency is what's more widely used

Will this hurt USD in the long run?

Nope.

Because tax avoidance is the best economic growth mechanism! ... And money exists for it being used for illegal activities. Because creating money that cannot be used for illegal activities has no appeal to be owned.

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?
This definitely won't hurt USD. This has been going for years and years and the USD just seems to keep doing better and better. Also, most currencies go through this, so if anything did happen, it would happen to a lot of currencies.

USD is the currency for illegal activities because it is the easiest currency to obtain globally and you can spend it any place in the world. for example you may not be able spend Chinese currency in another country but you can always find some place that can change USD and it is accepted everywhere.

USD can be used  anywhere since its the most  powerful currency as of now and   no matter what country   where you are  you could  still able  to exchange your  usd to other currencies which  you could  possibly do anything  you want  even to those   illegal things as long  you have the  money.

Of course since all the goods and commodities price were based on usd.  And not only usd but all the world's currency.  And the transaction now for illegal trade and anything illegal became more easy because of the invention of the bitcoin and other digital currency.

I think all the currencies around the world are being used in different illegal activities since we have our own currency. It is not right to use money in this kind of activities because it will destroy many innocent lives and other things here on earth. To be honest, some of the people in the government are the ones who are doing illegal activities like putting a protection to a drug lord that in return he will be benefited and will be paid with a large amount of money and so on. We can't trust everyone that is in the Government's position because some of them are really evil inside. They are just hiding their true color under their angelic names and faces.

Indeed it can be used by criminals or for criminal activities, but the question is which currency is not used for illegal activities, almost every currency is.
