nothing happens to a thief who steals bitcoin.

excuse my lame question...

why we don't have 'trusted' addresses & 'anonymous' ones...

so that 'anonymous' thief can never move BTC from 'trusted' addresses
to his 'anonymous' address..

--------
when the transactions is between: trusted -> anonymous

there can be checks/mechanism for 'trusted' address to revert
the transaction... within a day or so...

so that the real owner with 'trusted' address can have
some reaction time to realize the theft and reverse the tx.

So basically you want to make Bitcoin transactions reversible?

I just think you're mad you got scammed.

Because if trusted-to-trusted transactions aren't also reversible, then all the scammers will just become trusted by operating legitimately at first. Sending 0.01 BTC (or .02, .03, maybe even up to .08) to a few people to build up trust, then stealing hundreds. Kind of like they already do!

This would change nothing.

@nmat

well , i can't think of any 'checks/mechanism' now, so intentionally I leave that term vague
as of now :p

may be some form of web-of-trust or friend-of-friend concepts...
----

keeping ones wallet safe is simpler and fool proof,
asking for reversible tx seems to be lame... !

thanks guys.
