[Update Feb 19, 2014:

This thread is no longer being updated all that much. As Bitcoin further permeates the world, most every nation (or state, etc.) will have content specific to that jurisdiction's involvement with Bitcoin.   Feel free to continue posting as you wish, but this thread will no longer be even close to being a comprehensive list as it had been for a period of time.

Abstract- In Ukraine it is illegal

I have a feeling threads like this will be becoming more popular this year as regulators are looking more carefully at ICOs and are willing to step in and take action where they think they have jurisdiction. Markets like Korea or China where they have simply banned ICOs make for uninteresting reading as there is no well explained policy reasons or abilities to make determinations on grey areas. I think that securities regulators and tax authorities who take an active interest and do not apply a blanket approach will make for very intellectual discussions.

Bitcoin technology based on blockchain technology provides an attractive option for cybercriminals. With the operation of Bitcoin as a decentralized currency, people can make transactions without the presence of intermediaries such as banks or other financial institutions. This lack of intermediaries makes Bitcoin users gain anonymity and an impenetrable level of confidentiality from third-party interference.

BitFloor files complaint with FBI and Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).

Abstract: BitFloor suffered a security breach/hack in which about 24,000 BTC were stolen after access by the hacker was obtained to an unencrypted backup copy of the private keys hosted on BitFloor’s systems.  The exchange is essentially insolvent as a result and remains shuttered, except for facilitating withdrawals for the funds that weren’t stolen — the U.S. dollar balances, none of which were impacted as a result of the security breach.


I think it's disgusting the amount of exchanges and startups that have poor amounts of security for their digital assets. In traditional companies, there is very little someone can do to steal everything in seconds- however, obviously, crypto completely changes that. You'd think that anyone developing an exchange of value would invest considerable effort into protecting funds, but clearly they do not.

Agreed, I believe that something that needs to be done within exchanges would be a segregation of duties system. Whereas the hackers would have to penetrate many complex layers within the organization in order to steal funds. As it is now you take the funds and simply send it to your wallet. What exchanges should do IMO is make it so that there are 3-6 layers of authorizes on different teams in order to prevent fraud. Wondering if that could be built into the system itself for exchanges where the stakes are much higher than for the retail investor.

Agreed. This is the #1 reason that governments not only are beginning to but MUST regulate the exchanges and ICO (startups) releases!
Regulation will force the exchanges to implement at least baseline security standards and financial solvency/reporting requirements for startups looking to use ICO's for their financing. Right now for the most part the crypto-coin world is the Wild West where anything goes with ZERO consumer protections.

Due to the bridge of security and it's lapses the government of some countries with detail knowledge of cyber crime has not been in agreement with its security checks and hence do not support it's policies and benefit even if the benefits out weighs the cyber evil. My take on the issue is that more appropriate measures be taken to make the blockchain technology a safer environment.

Wow this is super interesting. I am currently writing my thesis in litigation for cybercrimes and I am definitely including an article on how crypto facilitates the payment of anonymous ransoms. Great sources!

I think it's nauseating the sum of trades and new businesses that have destitute sums of security for their computerized resources. In conventional companies, there's exceptionally small somebody can do to take everything in seconds- in any case, clearly, crypto totally changes that. You'd think that anybody creating an trade of esteem would contribute significant exertion into securing stores, but clearly they do not.

This is a very useful thread. I'm getting a lot of updates from law firms in different countries as the law firms are putting out press releases as things evolve in their country. So I'm putting the links to the press releases in an email and sending it once a month or so, to people that want to keep up to date. Please PM me if you're interested in getting the emails Smiley

I am writing posts which are at their own wish and will being deleted by moderator. The posts were better than anything else and in favour of bitcoin. But it is their perception for which nothing can be done. Its also a violation of human rights to waste one's efforts like this, but even if they do they should give a clear option of deleting account here. No contact address is also there. In profile there must exist delete account option. This mars the image of bitcoin as such a situation is of helplessness in Bitcoin forum and hence gives negative impact on bitcoin as well.

Moderators of this forum should feel shame and delete account.
