They said the funds are safe.
The problem of these guys is that they would probably earn that monthly just being white hats, or being compensated with a forfeit worth of bitcoins for the help, but I guess being bad guys maked them feel better.

They don't do it for money, they do it for power. To make others back down to them in cowardice. That's all it is -- a power show.

 People already look at BTC like it's a scam and is only used for illegal purposes

Listen, I love bitcoin but let's be honest...what legal things are BTC used for?

Transferring money without huge fees, and instantly? Selling items without fear of the buyer screwing you (aka PayPal/credit cards)? Selling services without that fear?

A potential opportunity:

Post by the head moderator (moments ago) at two plus two
http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/showpost.php?p=48233856&postcount=21

  • I would suggest we try to make a deal with an extant site with good software and Bitcoin capability, (as a unique facility for us, if necessary), to add password-opened TPT-users-only tables.

    The rake, (their gross profit for managing our tables), could be capped at an agreed figure, on, say, a six months revolving contract, to provide them with a minimal but acceptable net profit after their specifically related expenses.

This is actually pretty huge and could really boost up one of the BTC sites! I think for SWC to be viable, though, it needs mobile working.

Maybe you should do what other sites do and after you make a withdrawal request or p2p transfer we get an e-mail that we must confirm the request before the transaction is processed. Would that help?  I love SWC and hopefully you guys can put a stop to these horrible people. 

There has been no compromise of our infrastructure and you have nothing to worry about there. This is simple DDoS-- we are just getting hit with large amount of traffic from some people that write broken english and have probably simply rented a botnet.

However, if you would like to add a second factor of authentication to your account to further secure this, we support the use of Google Authenticator.

Most of the Bitcoin economy is legal transactions, in fact. There's been extensive study of the blockchain by economists, and only a small percentage of Bitcoin transactions involve illegal activity. The majority of Bitcoin transactions are perfectly legal.

Meanwhile, the vast majority criminal enterprise prefers US dollars. Some money launderers may prefer the Euro because the maximum note value is much bigger. Bitcoin is not really attractive for most criminals.

The big problem is that 2+2 is incorporated in, and its owners reside in Nevada.

So never mind.

Can you explain why this is such a big problem?

Promoting an unlicensed site in Nevada is a criminal offense.

Interesting... wasn't aware that promoting anything was a criminal offense ANYWHERE. Even torrent sites have been let off because they aren't HOSTING files, just telling people where to find them. Promotions should be the same thing.

I agree that ideally that will be the case.  But does it happen now?  I've used bitcoin to buy electronics, gift cards, ect...but it's only because I had bitcoin.  I've never bought bitcoin specifically to spend it on legal goods and services.  Has anyone?

That article doesn't say that a majority of bitcoin transactions are legal (it is the opening sentence, but that is an editorialized sentence), it says that illegal bitcoin transactions don't compromise a majority of all illegal transactions.  This makes sense, as most people don't use bitcoin.  I'd still like to hear your opinions on what legal things people are specifically spending bitcoins on.

I have only spent Bitcoin on legal things. Rent, food, flights, and hotels. I think you have a cognitive bias-- there's no indication that a significant part of the Bitcoin economy is related to crime. Most of it is on the up-and-up. Some of it isn't, but that's the same with every currency.

Only through activity which does not violate the laws of my legal jurisdiction.

But they probably violate the law(s) of some of the jurisdictions that your business service.  Which make them funds gained from illegal activities. 

Also, did you report 100% of your income on your taxes?  Even if you made bitcoins and spent those bitcoins without them ever hitting your bank account?  Because if you didn't report every single bitcent that you made, that's called tax evasion and that's also illegal.

I currently have no tax liability at the level of income I make, officer.
