Bitcoin went from $1 to $10,000 in 9 years. Never been heard of.. and Bitcoin got $350,000,000,000.  Roll Eyes

HYIP cartel is most likely using Bitcoin for their 200% profit per month HYIP programs/ponzis.

Will FBI investigation come to Bitcoin ??

Will FBI investigation come to Bitcoin ??


The FBI has been investigating Bitcoin transactions for years now. In fact I recently saw news about this again:

https://www.coindesk.com/fbi-agent-confirms-130-crypto-related-investigations/

Quote
The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is currently running 130 different cryptocurrency-related investigations, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

FBI Supervisory Special Agent Kyle Armstrong told the Crypto Evolved conference in New York that the agency is investigating a variety of crimes, including human trafficking, drug transactions, kidnapping and ransomware, which have a cryptocurrency component, according to Bloomberg.

Further, there has recently been an uptick in cases involving cryptocurrencies, he said, citing opioids as one area where the bureau needs to focus on. Roughly 10 percent of drug users worldwide purchase drugs online in illegal digital marketplaces.

Some parts of the U.S. have also seen an increase in extortion schemes, where the perpetrators wish to use cryptocurrencies.

That being said, these "threat-tagged" investigations only make up a "small sliver" of the thousands of  cases the agency has, he said.

And unlike crimes involving cash, Armstrong said the blockchain's immutability makes it easier to track transactions. On the flip side, cryptocurrencies' anonymity or pseudonymity make it more difficult to properly investigate a crime.

Avoiding ending up in trouble is really easy: Just don't buy anything illegal. The problem is if you are sending Bitcoin to someone that is a criminal and you don't know it, or somehow received "tainted" coins etc.

Every single Bitcoin user gets their own FBI agent assigned to them. Mine was my best man at my civil partnership recently.

My hands are actually fitted with a type of overglove on top of his hands which means he can override every single thing I type and do. I also have to allow him to fit into the same suit and pyjamas as myself.

You're telling me you don't have one, OP? You must be some serious deadbeat not to warrant one.

Funny. Of course it is insane for authorities to pretend to track every single bitcoin transaction , let alone every single transaction in any other cryptos, it's simply impossible, but thinking that the FBI is not actively and daily trying to track down bitcoin users it's naive.

Using Localbitcoins is a lottery in which you may or not may be dealing with an FBI getting paid to ruin your life while you try to get a couple hundred bucks worth of cash to pay bills.

The 130 cases are probably about deep web activities or about some big fishes irl. Nothing bad about this. If they do it with fiat what could be wrong to make it with digital currencies as well. We are safe from getting monitored by the FBI as an average Joe.

When people classified bitcoin as ponzi I do feel very bad because I have been in ponzi before and there is a great different between cryptocurrencies and ponzi scheme.  if FBI should investigate bitcoin because of the gained it makes in 2017 then I think FBI is the enemy of humanity.

Probably but they could be actively investigating bitcoin users itself through their activities on blockchain, and not as a person unless they know who particularly owns the address they are monitoring.

Why would simply investigating bitcoin will make FBI the enemy of humanity? It's not like they investigate it so that they can stop people from using bitcoin. They are only investigating it since long before 2017 to prevent money laundering and crimes related to crypto.

It begins with "130 fringe deep web cases" and it ends up in efforts to control every transaction. Remember that Jeff Garzik is working in bloq, a technology to try to monitor the blockchain and track everything.

Localbitcoins is already not safe to use. You can have bad luck and be trying to get 100 bucks in cash and you end up arrested by some cop. The bastards want to put everyone in jail, even us poor people trying to save up some money and get some extra money in cash to meet monthly expenses. It is a lottery. I am too paranoid to move Bitcoin at this point out of the crypto system, they can label you a criminal if they want even if you are innocent.

Maybe FBI investigation will come to bitcoin but they will invest who the satoshi Nakamoto no one actually knows who is that or the blockchain network which is virtual.Hmm then who will be the crime partner.Maybe all the investors of bitcoin will be investigated anyone thinks this is possible?

Lmao. How do they even begin investigating Bitcoin itself? It doesn't set the prices, which is what you assume will be the reason to bring about an investigation. It's just code that people use in the most basic sense.

It doesn't matter what HYIP scammers use because they all collapse in the end. Not even Bitcoin can fund them enough.

Bitcoin is not going anywhere bruh Cool But the people who make money illegally are !! Grin As long as you stay clear , you are good to go with your BTC.
Over the years, the cyber crimes have increased and particularly those involving BTC have definitely increased because of the anonymity BTC provides over any other payment method. So it's obvious that the FBI have an eye over these transactions but I am quite sure that they are behind the criminals involved with it and not the genine people who work hard to earn money through BTC. So just chill and spread the BTC love.

It does not matter whether it is investigated by fbia or nsa because it is not a company or something backed by the entity, but it is said that its creator has been determined by nsa but he is not a threat for usa  Roll Eyes

FBI or other government institutional  already investigate Bitcoin from few years ago :
  • They called few Bitcoin developers in 2010
  • Blockchain analyzer such as https://www.chainalysis.com/ already used by exchanges and government
  • There are speculation that government already know Satoshi identity even though they don't deny/confirm anything

It is even possible that they use Blockchain analyzer service to track people whose address tied to exchange's or their account (such as bitcointalk.org account).
If users really care about their privacy, they should use anonymous/fungible cryptocurrency, use secure connection and maintain their habit.

Maybe the FBI investigates bitcoin to prevent it from misused. We know that bitcoin is decentralized and transactions made unknown identity. So, there are possibilities that it could use for money laundering and any illegal transactions. This is just for the safety of everyone.

It is foreseeable that with the development of the bitcoin community, more people will use bitcoin, then FBI will shift their attention to the digital currency.

Bitcoin is always under investigation because bitcoin is use to not good activities that's the reason why others doing investigation against bitcoin. But bitcoin is legit the people who are using it to bad is the suspek on this and need to investigate. Even they investigate bitcoin they will see the truth bitcoin is legit.
