I'm also getting tired of all the "bitcoin is banned" threads. I've been reading threads here for like 2 months already and I haven't really found news of any country of significance that has outright banned bitcoin. Most of those in the news are either countries trying to put up some form of regulation, like in China's case (which I welcome) or warning their citizens to be careful in using Bitcoin, like India. In fact most of the news I'm seeing is starting to be promising. For example the Philippines is starting to regulate bitcoin. http://www.philstar.com/business/2017/01/30/1667297/bsp-regulates-bitcoin-usage Though it might sound a bit threatening regular users really need not worry. Some people are already using it to send remittances, the gov't regulating it might encourage other workers abroad to use it due to trust. Who knows business might become more willing to accept bitcoin for payments here, after all foreign remittance fuel consumption here (makes up at least 10% of gdp).



I read that many times and I am always quoting it that it is not really banned, and just "not being endorsed by the government"... Maybe signature campaign posters/farmed accounts are the ones always stating that it is being banned...  Cheesy

Maybe they just lack the time to research and just focuses on earning in campaign... Get used to it, there are much worst post than that that I encounter everyday...  Cheesy

On that topic it's really getting annoying, the general discussion page is just 50% newbies posting generic or controversial topics followed by a flood of people spamming the same message for their sig campaign quotas because they never bother reading beyond the OP. Bet those newbies are all alt accounts made for this purpose (sigdumping) *puts on tinfoil hat*. But yes, there are worse, still doesn't excuse them though

I've been reading stuff in this forum for some time now and have never started a single thread, mostly cause I'm still trying to learn more and most threads have enough answers (of course unless there's like 50-80 pages to scroll through, hard to read all that). I just find it a bit weird that newbies are allowed to start threads. The worst that I've seen are those that would just post a url. Not a single sentence, not even a word, just a url. IMHO members should be at least Jr. Member rank to start their own threads. That should probably reduce the amount of spammy threads since they'd actually have to hang out for some time here to reach Jr. Granted, some Newbies do post interesting stuff but they are outnumbered by the spammers.

"Bitcoin is banned in many countries"

I see lots of newer users and even some older, more experienced and knowledgeable users on this forum say it. Where did it come from? If you hand half a brain to read Bitcoin news (coindesk, cryptocoinsnews and news.bitcoin.com are my go tos), you would realise that all recent events regarding governments and Bitcoin are mostly just anti-money-laundering restrictions, not bans against cryptocurrency.

Most times what people engage in is just hear say and sometimes what they just decide upon is just the headline without even going through the content of the news. Another thing which is the most common us the fact that some people are just designed to be carrier of bad news, they are the ones that will predict a crash or a government functionary that have said something against bitcoin but will not report the first bitcoin ATM is Dubai or the adoption in Israel etc.

The thing is, a lot of people get the news from the mainstream, and the mainstream is known for getting things twisted. For example, i've seen "bitcoin banned in russia" numerous times already. My russian friends which are into bitcoin but in a casual way, have told me about it a lot of times already.

Now you know what is funny? the reality in which no country with even limitless resources could track you down and pinpoint the exact location or link any bitcoins to you if you simply pay a few percents to a mixing service and go completely off the radar, and actually any government's agencies acting against bitcoin is because they are unable to keep track of coin owners.


ALSO if anyone feels like there are junk posts being submitted you can easily ignore the users and stop acting like you all have blood that is not red Cheesy

In general, people like to talk without knowledge. They are not investigating exactly.
Some news are entering interesting news headlines to gain hits on sites. People believe this news immediately.
If they read the Bitcointalk site they will have the right knowledge.
