Nothing about this article is good for Bitcoin, but it does make me want to go buy some AK-47s.

EDIT: I do question anyone's ability to "ship" an AK-47 to a country that outlaws such an item for consumer purchase. How lucky do you have to be to actually receive one with all the security in the postal services of the world these days? They open a box of cookies if I order to South Korea for god's sake.

I agree with you on that in general terms. But it will garner more attention, now it just remains to be seen what direction this will push the project and prices in.

Really? I get packages all the time. Like probably something approaching 40 in the 4 years I've lived in Korea. 2 of those have been opened by Korean customs. One of those had a bottle of advil in it that was in the box it comes from the store. The package was opened, and the store box was opened, but the bottle itself was still sealed, so they obviously weren't really all that serious about seeing what was in there.

None of these packages has ever had duty assessed.

To be at least somewhat on topic, as far as shipping guns, they probably just take it apart and ship it in pieces in different packages. Probably no laws against shipping pieces of metal, plastic, and wood around.

In Korea, you can't ship gun parts either. Owning gun parts is also illegal here. Although I agree with you that customs may be lax in actually checking packages, whenever an x-ray is done and anything even remotely like a gun is being sent, they confiscate it. I can't even get paintball gun gas canisters sent or allowed in my luggage.

In Russia, the recruits are fleeing from the army with a АК47 (the army in Russia worse than prison) to sell and the money spent to help starving relatives (often parents) This is not Moscow, is Russia, this is a very different country. I am from Russia. Not in Moscow. I was offered AK47 for $ 200  Grin

In Soviet Russia, AK47 offers $200 for you. =p

Missed investment opportunity, AK47 in good hands can make more than $200 Wink
