What are Bitcoins worth?  Well, as the author explains, the Bitcoin/Dollar exchange is roughly 9 to 1, meaning one can purchase a 9mm Beretta 92FS with "No scratches or dents, very slight wear from extremely light usage" for 338.69 bitcoins or a little over $3,000.  For a law-abiding citizen, the same gun will cost one $650 to $800.  See, crime doesn’t pay!

The Armory is currently completely without any serious sellers or even non scam listings or any listings at all for that matter that I'd be seriously surprised if anyone can buy a real weapon on there.

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

The point of the article is that a legitimate gun dealer in the United States that decides to accept Bitcoin can sell the same gun for for BTC90 rather than BTC338.69 and the law abiding customer would get the gun in one piece. So crime does not pay.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card
