Bitcoins Are Back, at Least for Porn and Poker

As the bitcoin makes its comeback, it may also provoke renewed attention from law enforcement as an illegal competitor to the U.S. dollar or as a vehicle for money laundering, especially if it continues to be used predominantly on the Internet’s fringes.

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Right now there's probably a lot more use for black market transactions than computer hardware. Even if you have a problem with the black market, this doesn't reflect poorly on the currency....just points out that it's valuable and more useful than physical currency or credit cards.
