A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.
I hear this complaint a lot when I try to explain bitcoin. Silk Road, ransom ware attacks, so forth, but why does the currency exchanged during illegal activities matter. They say btc is for criminals, but isn't the usd the currency that's been involved in the most criminal activity through time?
Why is bitcoin to blame? Ransomware attacks and illegal market places involve the internet, should the internet be banned? Probably used a keyboard and a mouse should they go too? WTF. I don't understand

The creator of Silk Road, Ross Ulbricht (aka Dread Pirate Roberts) had challenged the legality of the bitcoin forfeiture. The Bitcoin rate was undergoing strong fluctuations at the time, but the damage was estimated at around $25 million. DPR found himself under enormous pressure. To start with, the lost Bitcoins did not actually belong to DPR but to his traders, who now discovered that their trading accounts on Silk Road had been completely emptied. Silk Road was operated by "Dread Pirate Roberts" (named after the fictional character from The Princess Bride), who was known for espousing libertarian ideals and criticizing regulation. Initially, buyers could register for free, but there were a limited number of new seller accounts available; new sellers had to purchase an account via an auction. In addition, transactions on Silk Road could only be made using bitcoin, which, although not entirely anonymous, offered a level of anonymity far greater than any other form of currency or credit card transactions would have enabled. Although it is true that Bitcoin is one of the most innovative inventions of the 21 st century with potentials to revolutionize financial systems all around the world, it is also true that Bitcoin has unfortunately been linked to various scandalous incidents.
