Events like this should serve as an example and remainder to all Bitcoin users that Bitcoin is very much like cash, and all the common sense (which the person described in this article lacked) also applies to it - you shouldn't walk around with huge amounts of coins on your phone, store it without proper backups and security measures, publicly talk how many coins you have. Even though in this situation the person with cash was robbed, it could have easily been vice versa when the seller of huge amounts of coins could have been robbed - and this have already happened before with other people.

I've said it on this forum alone thousands of times, you don't avoid the law, you try and change it for the better.

In certain aspects one could indeed force through a change, but in other aspects it's close to impossible, especially so if you look at all the developments against people and businesses when it comes to taxes. Mind explaining how exactly you think anyone here can change tax laws for the better? It's one aspect the government just doesn't want to grant people nor businesses any room for. It's their way, and their way only, which perfectly explains and justifies the increase of people looking for ways to avoid paying tax where possible. In legal terms they are criminals, while in reality they are just protecting what belongs to them, and to them only -- no single entity has the right to claim anything that belongs to you.

I'm interested to hear from you how we can change the tax laws for the better.

First you should really get rid of the assumption I'm having problems with the current tax laws in my country.
Cause I don't have any.

And the fact that everybody is trying to avoid tax is a natural thing, some countries managed to have an entire culture based on this and we know how it ended (Greece). It's the human nature  to try to avoid taxes even if they represent 1% of your income. People are trying to avoid paying anything, but it's still a crime.

There will never be a society where everybody is content with the taxes and everything gets done.
One of the richest country in the world shows us that:
Norway’s ‘Voluntary’ Tax Plan Brings In Just $1,325

The question is, why should somebody who sells cakes pay taxes and somebody who makes money trading bitcoins not?

People avoid tolls and they complain about potholes.
They get free rides on the buses and then they complain how dirty and old they are.
They avoid paying taxes and then they complain why the retirement funds are empty and why the unemployment benefits are that small.

Rather than asking me on changing something I don't want to, you should tell me how much of the Singapore's taxes have been wasted on this catching the thieves and recovering the money this guy lost  Wink
