I think it will destroy bitcoin reputation so it will difficult for bitcoin to grow at some country.
Some country may ban bitcoin as illegal transaction since it can be use almost in any criminal activity !

Why even fiat currency are also traded for this type of illegal activities so what that currency got banned not, it is the users who are using it is bad way, The fault is of the users who have not secured their system with full security, that is why they got this problem.

Satoshi is no god. He did not come down from the mountain with 10 golden rules engraved in stone for no one to question.

it's already a total pain to convert bitcoin to fiat so nothing much is gonna change. they'll have to be extremely good to disguise it. there's software that beats mixers now. i doubt they can be bothered to chase it this time.

they should've asked for monero.

looks like something's been paid already.
Funny you saying this as I just read that they had a bot installed to mine Monero on the affected computers http://uk.businessinsider.com/eternalblue-nsa-exploit-wannacry-ransomware-adylkuzz-monero-botnet-2017-5?r=US&IR=T

Bitcoins value can not be affected because of these cyber attacks that is a fact, the blame should be on their it department who should have done
their jobs of updating their computer systems! Its not an issue until something bad happens like in this case.
I think the should give credit to the hacker for exposing how obsolete most of our systems are and should be security cautious at all times.
