This guy is a bit-basher with little understanding of how bitcoin works, referring to it in the past-tense, as though bitcoin was dead

A brief article in the Financial Chronicle's 'mydigitalfc' in Hyderabad India.

Quote
A Volatile, New Currency

2011-09-19

http://www.mydigitalfc.com/economy/volatile-new-currency-260

"Although Bitcoin trading has flourished in certain niches, its future depends on its adoption as a currency. As Benjamin Friedman, a Harvard economist, explained on National Public Radio in July, the dollar is legal tender, meaning that it must be accepted by all businesses operating in the United States. Since there is no such guarantee backing Bitcoins, a majority of consumers are unlikely to abandon the dollar for the virtual currency."

Can Bitcoin Replace National Currencies?

"While this makes it unsuitable in its present form as a national currency, the development of digital currency is still in its infancy, and Bitcoin’s issues involving anonymity may eventually be resolved. "

  I watched the first 20 minutes and didn't see anything interesting.  Can you list some of the highlights you saw, and preferably say where they are in the (one-hour long) video?

The writer is being sarcastic.
The link is 'Enjoy Cheesy' in the post:

EDIT: Only in Holland would they actually buy some drugs on TV on  Silk Road and then sniff it to check if it actually is real.

Sorry my Dutch Is not too good. But just to point out as others have, it's a currency, just like any other currency. You can buy illegal things with euros just as well as you can with any other currency and bitcoins.

The big difference with bitcoins and old fashioned currencies is thats it's not printed by any government and any noticeable It does not take fees and Such (like eg with credit cards) to use it digitally. It does not make it any more or less overused for Illegal Purposes. That argument is Comparable to ban cars or saying We Should kitchen knives Because people get killed by em.

Obviously not enough research done.

Bitcoin is not 'specially designed for illegal transactions. If your reasoning goes that way, then the dollar also developed for selling cocaine.

@ Everyone who has just seen this episode, take a look at http://www.bitcoin.org/ (the site of Bitcoin) and especially http://www.usecoins.com/ to understand what is Bitcoin DO (a decentralized currency).

Dear Editor, I can not imagine that you read but little chance I would take a minute.

Your research on this topic is not really thoroughly as there are some pretty important facts that you have completely left out of the broadcast. I found this myself because within 10 minutes (it was not that hard). So the situation you have outlined that drugs purchased from this website is completely anonymous. The website itself is also completely untraceable because they ensured by using Tor. Unfortunately, the payment Bitcoin actually traceable and it even makes it very easy for someone to find information. The IP address of all the two parties is in fact open to all. This IP address is traceable back to eg your home address and telephone number. Which is not only useful for the police but also fun for people who sometimes commit a overvalletje here and there. Well of course you can be sure that you have an anonymous IP address, but there are also ways to circumvent them if you really want to find.

What I'm saying is that you take a dumb idea in people's head placed a false sense of anonymity. There are people who do not take the necessary precautions and yet with this site to work. These people may result in trouble and you are the cause. Sure I know that you are not really the cause because everyone is responsible for his or her own actions. But just as an educational program, it is your responsibility to correct information in order to protect these people. There are extremely many stupid people in this world.

To force to stand here a YouTube video that explains everything as spotless.
