Bitcoin For Evil

in #life3 years ago

Been reading The Darkest Web by Eileen Ormsby and stumbled upon this segment in the early chapters.

So I guess that's one main concern when it comes to Bitcoin and crypto, for illegal transactions that can't be traced.

Furthermore, it'd be highly dangerous especially when terrorists use it to fund their ops.

Something for us to think about and keep ourselves grounded yes?

Invalid argument.

No less traceable or dangerous than the fiat currency they already use.

Interesting stuff. It makes me want to read the book :D

I think anonymity and privacy in our financial dealings is a good thing.

Criminals. What is a crime? In my country, it's a crime to voice an opinion that has not been cleansed of 'wrong speak'.

Money. For a long time, the control and wealth has favoured the greedy few. Decentralising money is something I look forward to. The government is far too nosey about our money and enjoys thieving what's ours (taxes every time you turn around). I look forward to the anonymous exchange of services and goods without the government and greedy rich bankers taking their massive cut.

Interesting post. Made me think. Thanks :)
