So is all cash. Technology itself is never amoral, only its applications can be.

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

Nope, no more than it bothers me that US dollars are used to finance drugs, child porn, and terrorism.  (It doesn't.)

I'd have trouble sleeping at night as well if I was a christian.

Yup, such an angry space daddy Christians believe in. Must be really hard to sleep at night.

Does it bother you that $ is used to enslave entire societies in engineered debt and artificial scarcity?

I'm okay with drugs. Child porn and terrorism, not so much. Did you just make this up or is it real? (especially terrorism. I could sadly imagine child porn on sale for bitcoins...)

The difference between $$/€/.. and bitcoins is that bitcoins make it easy to pay and be anonymous at the same time. If someone pays for child porn using €, there are usually ways to find him and do whatever the local laws say.

It bothers me, but that has nothing to do with bitcoin.

There still has to be an exchange, even if the money exchange is easy. Drugs must be transported somehow, terrorism is not done by a monetary transaction either.

And child porn? I don't believe that there actually is a market. I think there are only communities of child porn consumers sharing their files. How would you stop them from doing that by making payments harder?

i am christian so i have to admit it sometimes i have trouble sleeping at night.
its a simple thing: Money(btc, usd, eur, ...) will be used do buy/finance illegal stuff.
and btw. there is no terrorism, they are all just freedom fighters. Tongue
and drug related crimes, would not exist if drugs was legal.
how often do you see alcohol/coffee related crimes?
i think that drugs should be legal, and governments should stop having a war against it, and they should focus more on drug addicts.

Have you ever tried to snort coke with a bitcoin? Pretty easy with a dollar note though and near every bill in circulation has trace amounts on them and I think you can get a few grams out of a pile of a million if you were so inclined. What was your point?

Yes it does bother me. But as many people said, it's the problem of money in general, not specific to any specific currency.

And no, using a certain currency doesn't mean I'm sponsoring whatever else is being done with that currency.

You're sponsoring drugs and/or child porn if you're giving money to that industry. (As for terrorism, that's a word I don't even want to hear, it's been made up by governments and hardly anybody uses it Yes it does bother me.
