first:

I hope I reach allinvain, which got stolen 25.000 BC...this forum anti-spam is annoying, I can not even write him a PM.

ok:

so, what I would do if I got robbed of my bitcoins:

1. Persistently trace the transactions of my stolen BC through blockchain (should be possible)
2. Publish a list of these transactions every day publically, especially here on the forum
3. Sue everyone that I can get hold of for concealment of stolen goods. (You can always know who got your stolen coins through blockchain)

Point three especially applies to money exchanges like MtGox.

E.g.: Someone cashes out any of my stolen coins at MtGox => If MtGox cashes out, sue them for concealment of stolen goods and claim the BCs invovled.


Fortunately I don´t own any BC, so that is one concern less. Wink
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

And how do you know your bitcoins don't get mixed with others so that someone who has "tainted" coins doesn't actually know they were stolen at one point?

I recall something about "every dollar has touched cocaine at some point".

If I publish the tainted transactions and it is public knowledge, then nobody can say they didn´t know. If I sell you a stolen car, the car legally gets returned to its rightful owner.

You expect for example a company that is selling hosting, to actively verify the identity of everyone who buys hosting, then check all inputs for possible traces of tained coins through the entire blockchain, and then publicly call out about this person? Or what?

What you are suggesting is unreasonable, unfeasible, and impossible to enforce. You simply cannot expect someone to trace back *every* single payment they get to find out whether there might possible be a vague trace of tainted coins.

Yet another noob unaware of how crime actually works (or how this btc thing works), or what something like chauming blinding offers.

Really in most cases I don't think you would get them back. The best thing you can do is prevent such theft from occurring in the first place. That is glaringly obvious, but it needs to be repeated as much as possible.
