Cash is serialized isn't it? So to say cash is anonymous is only HALF CORRECT!
OK. Let's replace "cash" with "coins" then. Coins aren't serialized. Bitcoin shouldn't contain "coin" in its name, coz every satoshi is serialized
umm, no they are not. You are thinking of them like the items of an online game in a database. Where every item, even if its the exact same has a unique ID. This is not the case with Bitcoins... The sending and receiving of bitcoins is simply a recording in a ledger stating x number of coins now belong to x address instead of y address. Nothing more. And unless you go out of your way to attach your info to an address you are using it is actually fairly anon by default. If you are doing something so terribly illegal that you think an agency would go through the trouble and resources to track down who owns an address, then you have much bigger problems than to worry about how anon bitcoin is by default..
If your goal is to make bitcoin as anonymous as possible by default, then why not work on a project for the average user that would do that for them?
And cash will not be the answer for much longer. Look for ALL USD to be 'digital only' starting 2017 when the noose is much futher tightened to outlaw cash transactions....
And if you want to make a comparison of the anon value of spending BTC versus any other currency in digital just think about a normal, digital transaction at a merchant now. You slide your card that has all of your personal details attached to it. It logs your name, address, phone, dob, and any other data you have 'agreed' to allow merchants access to by simpy having the card. It logs the exact time and place you used your card. There is a high likelyhood that there is also video to match up exactly with yuor transaction, your vehicle and anything you may have been 'browsing' in the store. Did you spend some extra time looking at those dangerous pool chemicals but you don't even have a pool you say?... ;p Just sayin' /tinfoil loin cloth
