I guess that the criminals decided to use Monero, Dash, ZCash or other anonymous crypto currencies, because their transactions can't be tracked. Yes, Bitcoin is quite transparent crypto currency, so BTC is trusted by many people.

Anyways, I think that the overall dark market was not reduced, but illegal activities are paid in other coins. Therefore currently the most of Bitcoin transactions are made by speculators.

Yes, but where does those currencies end up after they used those Alt coins? How many merchants do you know that accepts Monero or Dash or ZCash? In many instances those mentioned currencies are used, because they have better anonymity, but eventually it ends up being converted back to BTC to enable these criminals to spend it.

We want to ignore that, but it is true.  Roll Eyes

Guess that's where mixing services come in, right?  Wink

The criminals could have simply moved all their money out to more secure cryptos and keep and transact there and just convert to btc when they need the money back in fiat. That could skew the numbers since these would be new money coming in.
I don't get it completely. Do you mean that speculators are the new criminals? Who tend to hoard crypto currencies and in exchange to fiat? Anyway, there must be suggested solutions for that to prevent from skewing money coming in the market. But, then how could this be prevented by the way? Hope this will be worked on and track the criminals.

LOL, I was responding to the comment that criminals have moved on to other cryptos and that they may still be using btc but under the radar.

I wouldn't call speculators criminals, I'm not an SJW. There are speculators in every market, they're who keeps things moving. After all, they're the ones who buy in in bulk and that money tend to go back in the market again after they've made a profit.

Criminal speculators   Lips sealed.  What makes you say that? Did you based your findings by interviewing criminals? I thought underworld organizations want to stay under the radar.  Wink

Yes, I agree with you, but the existence of crime in the crypto world always has a big influence in destroying the market. and criminals will not leave the crypto world.

Bitcoin network systems always have new innovations, and security is an important value that always be considered, so that criminals cannot use bitcoin for their benefit.

Currently, the ratio of legal to illegal activity on the bitcoin network has completely changed trend as the former surpasses the former. This was stated by DEA Agent Lilita Infante at the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration.

Is the number of criminals on the bitcoin network has significantly reduced compared to early days?

https://coinpedia.org/news/bitcoin-network-speculators-not-criminals/

Yes i agree with you. The speculators want to make quick profit from market movements.
They even can manipulate the market to get more profit by buying the low price after they dump.
I think not much criminals exist in cryptocurrency, other than scam icos and projects.

Even though bitcoin has been criticized a lot that it's mostly used by criminals for illegal actions,i think that it has been over zoomed.

But speculators also could not be welcomed as they don't contribute anything for cryptos and just help to destabilise the market by price fluctuations.But the sad thing is that even criminals ratio could get reduced in cryptos but not the speculators and they would last till the end.

another shitty article is being shared by the owner of the website on this forum for click bait purposes!

I don't know when these people are going to realize that "essay writing" is not the same as "article writing". an article is something with valuable information, some research and real sources. for instance there is no valid information about how the activities on bitcoin blockchain are being measured. OP is just making things up as he goes to make something possibly because he has read some tweet or some random comment in the social media.

It is possible that the criminal world uses transactions in the crypto currency, but most of them are accounted for by market speculation.

I'm wondering what is better though. Speculators are really annoying, every post on this forum is about the price instead of a proper conversation on how the tech can help out

I agree, that bitcoin most dominated by speculators to the community not criminals because till the bitcoin long lasts many people use it and part of bitcoin world but if people know their limitation while using bitcoin and know the etiquette the crime will avoid.

Offenders can use significant resources to influence the market negatively or positively if they wish. Today, there are fewer and fewer Mossics, the largest moshchenki left only in new projects! New project - Moss is trying to raise funds and disappear!

In the market, scammers began to work in other ways, but willing and beginning to trade in the market is really becoming more. Good traders are still few, mostly those who lose.

it is absolutely true that crypto world is the one that makes the most money that makes criminals not leave the crypto world, but with bitcoin has an innovation that allows users to secure their assets now it will be very difficult for criminals to steal it.

If it is the case that speculators outweigh criminals in crypto, I would think
that the mainstream media will still use the criminal factor to beat bitcoin with.

I think most criminals tend to use different coins tah Bitcoin for their actions. If they have to make an illegal transaction they will rather use in this case Monero or ZCash. Bitcoin as far as it's secure it's not that anonymous.

Bitcoin is easy way to use for illigal activities because this is decentralized we admit that, but it doesn't mean that all activities here is illigal i know that bitcoin flatform organization doesn't allow that kind of activities i know that they alimimate quickly if there is irregularities here. But we could aware those speculation about negative issue for ligetimacy of bitcoin because we are democracy all regarding to bitcoin is willing to discuss.

Today, there are fewer and fewer Mossics, the largest moshchenki left only in new projects! New project - Moss is trying to raise funds and disappear! A lot of time has passed before the government began to really promote the legitimacy of electronic money. Although I do not think that is the only factor because they may be using other electronic money in their method to commit crimes, and the news only includes the BTC support what I think they have transferred. Other electronic money, and what others have said head Monero, Dash, Ripple, and Zcash is one of the most preferred cryptocurrencies for anonymity. What do you say? I think the hell organizations want to be under the radar. The Bitcoin network has always been innovative, and security is an important consideration always, so criminals can not use bitcoin for their benefit. Yes, they can hack accounts,

The bitcoin community is now full of speculative investors, who have large or small capital, with one common goal of earning as much profit as possible. Indeed, transactions become faster and more passionate, because the movement of buying and selling is very fast along with rising prices or falling prices. They are speculators, so they don't care if they lose, but at other times they also win big.

Because BTC has huge benefits, there will be so many speculators!
Everything in the world will be like this. If there are interests, there are many speculators who risk the crime to commit speculation!

In my honest opinion I think the rate at which criminals use the bitcoin for their fraudulent activity has reduced simply because of the transparency of the bitcoin as every transaction happen to be recorded on the blockchain technology

Though that doesn't mean the currency isn't used for fraudulent activities as its basically decentralized and anonymous..

The system is still dominated in my own opinion by both criminals and speculators(who keep waiting for the price to rise,rise and rise)
