Bitcoin Plays a Role in Humanitarian Assistance

North Korea has always been notorious for its human rights violations. Recently, the totalitarian dictatorship has been drawing criticism for the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. On March 8th, Cheollima Civil Defense(CCD) released a video on its website claiming:” Han Sol, the son of Kim Jong Nam, and two other family members were met quickly and relocated to safety. “

I browsed its website and found this on its statement:

“If you would like to offer anonymous financial support for our protection efforts, please use the below Bitcoin wallet address, with our deepest thanks:
134ytYQnZVAEVV6YZVfx1NBUGc9GY45FBm”

Out of curiosity, I checked transaction records of the address and found that 24 transactions have been made with 2.7 bitcoins in total within two days.

3.10.2

Now you might wonder as I do, where are these anonymous donors from?

Could it be China?

The statement released by CCD thanked China for its assistance. Plus, Han Sol had been living in Macau under Beijing’s protection after the family went into exile a several years ago.

Could it be Japan?

North Korea fired four ballistic missiles early Monday morning with some landing in waters as close as 300km(190miles) from Japan’s northwest coast. Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe strongly protested that:

“The launches are clearly in violation of security council resolutions. It is an extremely dangerous action.”

It sounds reasonable that Japanese bitcoin investors would support CCD.

Could it be America who has been imposing sanctions on North Korea?

It could be anyone. We never know.

But does it really matter?

Now with bitcoin, on the one hand, every man and woman of integrity can reach out to others by offering financial support to organizations fighting for human rights, gender equality, LGBT community and justice without worrying about a privacy leak. On the other hand, however, it could also be used for drugs, crimes, terrorism. Does this make bitcoin bad?

    that doesn’t make bitcoin bad, everyone is free to use bitcoin, and you can’t deny them no matter what they are or from where they come from, this is also part of the decentralizationwhat matter is that they don’t see bitcoin as a bad tool only because bad guys are using it, the same terrorists can easily use cash or electronic payment, therefore the problem are terrorist not what they use

    Who can verify the news is factual? Or simply made up?I have a member that was the head of a major mafia gang with global network. He managed the financials of this gang and at one time he was responsible to launder as much as 20% of the entire supply of Bitcoin available. It was no easy task. He had to use various means to spread (sort of) the Bitcoin allocation to various investment assets under the radar. Or course some of the means to do so includes using the services of localbitcoins.com and some unknown Bitcoin exchanges. Others include buying Bitcoin tokens from Chinese mining companies using Bitcoin itself. Today the gang has no more Bitcoin left. All successfully laundered into fiat. Do you believe this story? Who can verify as facts?Even I can write fake news.And by the way, did I tell you of a friend that is the step daughter of the ex-Phillipino prime minister? Apparently she is in ownership of some half a ton of pure gold bars.

    throwing in random names doesn’t make the story more believable and no, I assure you that there is no idiot in the whole world that is going to choose bitcoin (with 100% public, open to the whole world transactions) over easy fiat/cash such as using USD which is 100% anonymous, non-traceable and acceptable everywhere in the whole world.p.s. your username seems to be matching the kind of topics you create in this forum.

    They are already using fiat for their financial needs. Bitcoin does not directly enable them to do more. It could make certain transactions easier though, but the same goes for any new technology. Bad people can always use it for their purposes as well.

It could all have been paid in cash and for the sole purpose of diverting people attention it was said it’s been paid in Bitcoins.

    Any currency can be used to support terrorists but it is not the fault of the currency itself…the only thing is that since Bitcoin is new it is raising some eyebrows and there are still so many people who are not convinced of its viability. Fiat currencies are being used to finance terrorist activities but they are rarely mentioned because it is pointless doing so. As to Bitcoin, this scenario is something it can not avoid because of its supposed anonymity feature but Bitcoin transactions can still be traced and we know it so it is not actually 100% anonymous. Unfortunately, we can not command terrorist groups not to use Bitcoin.

    Actually, there are more terorist who used fiat money to buy some weapons rather than the terorist who used bitcoin to buy/sell weapons. It’s clear that bitcoin isn’t made to be used for illegal activities that are against to the government or nation since some governments in other country are now supporting bitcoin to be used as majore currency which indicate that bitcoin is a legal currency that its user shouldn’t be discourage to initiate using it for online transactions.

    In the future when (not if) bitcoin is regulated and network centralized, the combined effects of regulation + centralization itself will be able to limit actions that any person can take with bitcoin. And that includes funding terrorism.Of course with current network structure, any limitation to impose on what a bitcoin holder can and cannot do is not possible. But once everything is in place, that will be a possibility.

    No one can really tell whether its being used or not we can only assume its possible because I have not read of any breakthrough investigation into terrorist activities that has been reported to have been possible through the use of bitcoin at the same time even if that is achieved, it does not mean all bad for bitcoin even fiat has been used for illegal activities and that does not mean its banned from being used again…

    That is feasible and possible. If US dollars can be used to buy our necessities it can also be used to finance terrorism. Bitcoin as a currency can also be used in buying our necessities if the local merchants will accept it and at the same time it can be also used to finance terrorism. What I mean is the use of any currency will depend on the intention of the holder. Whether it is bitcoin or dollar the government must secure that both will not be used to fund terrorism and cause many deaths.

    We cannot control others on how they will use bitcoin just like we cannot control people on how to use fiat. Since bitcoin itself has its value, this type of usage is inevitable. Since you asked if bitcoin is used to support terrorist or any bad organization, I will tell you that nothing will change. Did anyone asked “what if they use fiat to do bad?”, obviously fiat and bitcoin are the same at some point but no one questions the usage of fiat as far as I know.Quote

    We really don’t control bitcoin so we don’t know for what bitcoin is being used. Bitcoin had been funding illegal transactions for quite long. Bitcoin had been used for money laundering across many countries. So, bitcoin have seen dirty money as well. I won’t be surprised if terror outfits use bitcoin for their transactions. Because the structure of bitcoin is designed that way. While it has all the transaction records maintained in a public ledger, but unless and until you know the account name, you can’t say what belong to whom.

    NO, of course bitcoin wouldn’t support such thing like terrorist, but since anyone could use bitcoin, then terrorist might use it in their dark plan purposes. And Yes, this might already happening, but we just don’t know about it because you know, terrorist act silently but deadly, that is why it is banned on some countries which do have many terrorist, their government is just preventing terrorist to use the advantage of bitcoin on this illegal stuffs.

    As scary as it is, Bitcoin can be used to any way and that of course, can be a good or bad act. It just only depends on the owner of it. The president of US can buy bitcoin and it’s also the same with the criminal groups. They can also buy BTC and use it for terrorism. I think this is one of the reasons why the government wants to control the flow of BTC in certain countries.

    It is easier to track Bitcoins than it is to track cash. Some of you guys should check https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudonymity

    Yes it is that is why we have Bitcoin mixing services. Trackibility will not discourage the criminals from using it as their preferred way to do transactions. Try dealing in the dark markets. Bitcoin is reaching new heights by operating outside the jurisdiction of regulatory bodies.

    Thats why there are mixing services and i can say that they are earning decent because of illegal transactions or for those people who dont want to be traced. Yes its really possible to track bitcoin transactions but using mixing services would do the job on hiding yourself completely and it can really be used by terrorist or any other person do illegal activities.

    We cannot control others on how they will use bitcoin just like we cannot control people on how to use fiat. Since bitcoin itself has its value, this type of usage is inevitable. Since you asked if bitcoin is used to support terrorist or any bad organization, I will tell you that nothing will change. Did anyone asked “what if they use fiat to do bad?”, obviously fiat and bitcoin are the same at some point but no one questions the usage of fiat as far as I know.Quote

    Is this true? I think it is still not certain. But there is a possibility that they will use these bitcoin to send them because bitcoin can be sent not knowing who sent it and what will be doing with it, even who is the reciever of it. Even in my newbie days here I am also thinking that these can be done by people, though I don’t think that it can be really used these efficiently by these terrorist. With these, terrorist can convert bitcoin and earn money, buy guns and other things that they can use to overthrow the government and hurt the people under it, that is really miserable.

     That is right, bitcoin is just a virtual currency and it is not good or bad but depends on how the users use it. We humans are the one making that digital currency tainted in black but it is inevitable. It is been predicted to be used in such activities and we can’t do anything about it because it is really ideal for making such illegal transactions. Satoshi Nakamoto created these digital currency so that we can have freedom about our money and send it efficiently throughout the world. And if Satoshi Nakamoto knew that they are using it wrong, he will be very dissapointed with it.

    Since bitcoin is not a centralized , but it is decentralized and everyone is free  to use and it is not restricted to use for particular person or user .But still use of bitcoin by such types of people ( criminal activities ) will down the value ( in view of the government ) and it may be possible that some more countries ban the bitcoin fully .So here we should do complete our responsibility , we should never make deals with those person who are not known fully or are doubtable and never try to reveal  Thier identity . In this way we can stop the use of bitcoin in bad thing and we will finally support the bitcoin in really way .

    Yes we know that even though their real money is being used in doing illegal transactions but did you know that it is easier to give money thru bitcoin and it will be more safer? Because imagine if a rich man will support terrorist then if he withdraw money from his account, it will reflection on his bank account and the government might investigate that while in bitcoin if you send and withdraw money there is no traces that might put you in danger. So bitcoin is more prone for being used in terrorism.

    Bitcoin, like any other currencies or valuable stuff, is neutral. It does not have any motives in itself. We are the ones who make decisions on how to use bitcoin and all these resources around us. Whether it be for gambling, for terrorism, or for watching porn, or donating to a charitable institution, and the money we use represents as our blind witness to our transactions.

    Anyone who talks about using legislation on Bitcoin to fight terrorism is simply using a convenient event to push an agenda that they’ve had for a while. The fact is, Bitcoin is not used all that much more than other currencies for illicit activity that affects other people in a dangerous way, a large majority of the time. While it is more popular on sites that use .onion extensions, other currencies are still used, and would just make up Bitcoin’s market share.Stopping Bitcoin doesn’t stop terrorist funding. It’s disingenuous to suggest such a thing.

    That’s what I was thinking when I saw this question. The people who have tried transacting some big amounts through exchanges or other wallets. Without being converted to fiat it’s near to impossible. We are not talking about small amounts here and as far as I know terrorist groups are not that patient who wait 24 hours to get a confirmation

    Just a quick fact check, fiat is the main currency used to support terrorism. Nothing has changed right?Bitcoin’s market cap is far too low to finance a huge terrorist organisation. If it were to happen, rules imposed on exchange (AML/KYC) policies can help to prevent it. It is hard to purchase anything with Bitcoin without exchanging to fiat first.

    not to mention that terrorist buying bitoin for their activity would actually support bitcoin, more than bitcoin supporting themi mean terrorist don’t have any way to have bitcoin minus buying, if they were really using bitcoin, right now the price would be higher

    I believe it’s being used ever since. In the deep web I see some contract killers for hire and you pay them bitcoins to kill me or other person, for example. I’ve heard some secret ISIS sites in the deep web too and anonymous is on high alert about these terrorist sites.  I’m sure they are using bitcoin to fund their cause.

    Is this already happening? Most likely.You should see BTC as a normal currency, like € or $. Criminal organizations get paid in all currencies, cash or virtual, it doesn’t matter.Did they kill € and $? No. Will that ever happen? No, that’s simply stupid. So why would that happen with btc?I know what you mean with that, I know that you felt like asking this question because popular beliefs see Bitcoin as an illegal and nonexistent currency, but I honestly think that’s never going to happen. They can’t kill something big like btc.

    Of course yes, basiccally bitcoin can be used for good things and bad things include support terrorists​ but should the peoples who care about bitcoin and as comunity of bitcoin we must take care about bitcoin don’t be used for bad things like support to terrorists​. please don’t use bitcoin for support terrorists​ and criminal

    You cannot stop it, no matter how much you beg and plead. In my opinion it is better if it was used by criminals and terrorists. Disruption of the banking system is what we want as Bitcoiners right?

    Even if we make some posters on billboards telling people to not use bitcoin in illegal activities or to support terrorism but that will do nothing. Everything will depend on the choice and the decision of a person. And so if that person will send bitcoin to the terrorists with an intention of rebelling against the states then we have no control over that. Bitcoin as a currency will not be free from such activity but let us not worry about that since the government is doing its job to stop all kinds of terrorism.

    Does it really have to be from the deep web to look realistic? What if I told you that you can hire literally anyone to kill somebody else? That doesn’t make any difference at all from some guy in the deep web. Anyone can kill a person depending on the price. That’s not news to us at all.But the payment doesn’t necessarily has to be bitcoins. Any single thing that can be used to destroy the world or at least inflict damage to it is helping the terrorists. And literally everything can be like that. Even a tree can be used as a weapon by the terrorists. You can kill using a log from a tree.It’s not bitcoins that’s supporting the terrorists. It’s just that everything can be used as right or wrong.

    Well terrorists aren’t the only thing that Bitcoin has, there’s other groups of people that do really disgusting things that accept and send payments with Bitcoin. Bitcoin isn’t the only thing that they use, they also use other Currencies that help fund those type of activities and they don’t complain so much about it other than it being a large amount of money. The Governments already knows that Bitcoin does not have the potential to overcome their main Currencies and they just want the power of the Currencies just standing out in front of the citizens residing in it.

    Then there will be a gap in the market that someone will be willing to fill. If there was a terrorist group who wants to convert their Bitcoins to fiat, a trader in the black market could buy them for a better price than the regular market.

    Terrorists trainers and exporters have access to the biggest oil reserve in the world and they’re fine selling the oil to dozens of countries worldwide in exchange of US dollar and they’re doing a great job with only using fiat and seems like every one has a completely different definition of terrorism.For instance Cuba/ Iran/ North Korea/ Syria are supporting terrorism according to Washington, and Saudi Arabia blatantly injecting money and man power with supply into various terrorist organizations around the world and they even are allies with US.It makes me think, which one is true?Also it makes me to believe in bitcoin knowing those countries can do whatever they want to do without ever using bitcoin, I believe bitcoin is not yet big enough to worth trying it with hundreds of billion dollars to support terrorism.Unless of course all the mining pools are in bed with ISIS and other terrorist organizations/ states which I really doubt it, there is no direct evidence of such a bold claim.

From asking ransoms to captive foreigners and other demands that can be met by rich families to governments I think Bitcoin only comes to second. Also how can a currency support something? It is always up to the user of the currency on which he/she decide to use it. And I think that anything that can be used online wants to be avoided by the terrorist because they know it is monitored by the government.

    First bitcoin was used before by the terrorists and for this was mentioned by several authorities in various moments. Second this doesn’t mean nothing. Bitcoin is money like the other money and as such is normal that can be used for every purpose that money serve. Telling that bitcoin has fault in such cases mean to tell that euros, us dollars etc has foult too. Because even this money are used pour such aims.

    Do not worry on how people are using bitcoin. Does any news channel even reported negative news about fiat money at all? Of course not! Bitcoin is not new in concept when you compare it with the fiat money. People use fiat money for drugs, prostitution, crimes, terrorism and does that make the fiat bad?

    Exactly that’s the point I think is right.Even though if bitcoin is used by terrorists,How can it be considered as a bad form of currency.This way you can say that if terrorists use dollars,Than even dollars is a bad currency.Which I think most of you are against.So it doesn’t really matter if terrorists use it or not.It is the currency of the internet and it’s open for all.

    i do not think that its the Aim of bitcoin because bitcoin is just made for online transaction and bitcoin is just a digital currency and i think bitcoin is the safest way to secure your money.
    i agree with you that bitcoin is digital currency and a lot of people feel safe and secure with bitcoin and they using bitcoin for online shopping and maximum people are using bitcoin as investment.

    I do not think that this thing is going further with bitcoin. Bitcoin is mostly created for the use of internet to support the users of internet to transact their money to place of the world without any issue and terrorist will not longer get benefit from it.

    throwing in random names doesn’t make the story more believable and no, I assure you that there is no idiot in the whole world that is going to choose bitcoin (with 100% public, open to the whole world transactions) over easy fiat/cash such as using USD which is 100% anonymous, non-traceable and acceptable everywhere in the whole world.p.s. your username seems to be matching the kind of topics you create in this forum.
    Bitcoin isn’t 100% public and USD isn’t 100% anonymous.  Bitcoin transactions are public from the blockchain but they’re pseudonymous as addresses are hard to link to individuals.  While Bitcoin isn’t anonymous and those who don’t take very careful precautions can be caught, it’s a lot more anonymous than digital fiat (e.g. bank transfer) so if you’re doing anything online, Bitcoin is the best choice since a lot of criminals already accept it.Even cash USD, while having separate purposes to Bitcoin, isn’t 100% anonymous.  Also, if you think that USD is accepted everywhere, you’re pretty arrogant about how national currencies work.

How about fiat money, dollars and everything that does have value? They are using it for supporting those people and it’s up to them if they will use it for good or bad.

    Bitcoin has nothing to do with terrorists activities. And if it used by them, money laundering and stuff, I think bitcoin is making a progress and bitcoin is used even for a terrorist. Staoshi Nakamoto aims a currency that can be used by many people everywhere and anywhere in the internet. Saying that they use it, means that they like bitcoin because of its transaction features.

    Bitcoin donations or crypto currencies wont make any difference, nowadays big donations are made to support terrorists, and nothing happens at all, banks dont care what the money is for as long they get their fee, easy as that. Bitcoin is a currencie that can be used for both sides, and there is no way to prevent the abuse of any of them. I doubt terrorists will risk their money over bitcoin, since they can loose money doing such, and they do have their costs.

    LOL I have to agree, so much illicit money is moved through the traditional financial system that bitcoin could never compete,.just as a function of scale. Bitcoin might be viable for money ttansfer, if there is liquidity. But buying anything that would fund a meaningful war effort, besides food, would be pretty difficult as no one really accepts bitcoin at the moment. Also, funding terrorism isn’t a small dollar exercise; to convert the btc to fiat to actually buy stuff would probably set off AML/KYC flags at most legitimate banks.

    I agree with you. Criminal groups are already using Bitcoin. It can help terrorist groups to receive donations from their supporters as the currency is pseudo anonymous and not very tracked yet as there are a few number of people in the world using Bitcoins.We can’t be blind about it, Bitcoin is surely good and helpful, but not only for the good people of this planet, but for all, including the terrorists, the worse disease of our time.

    Just like everybody saying here, it still depends on how people will use it. It can be used to support bad people but that’s the drawback of having such a good currency. We can’t control the ideas of people, we can’t control how they behave and we won’t​ know how they will use BTC. That’s real talk and that’s real world. Instead of blaming something or someone just be part of the something good. The wrongs of the world are clear, we know that. Be the one who fights for the good even if it caused your life. The good BTC must not be used in things like that.

    Bitcoin is being used by a lot of illegal transaction but I dont think it is the terrorists.

Even diving the deeper web.Oh! and terrorists are being funded by something else out there that we didn’t know. They use fiats.If ever they will use bitcoin we wont trace it also.

    No doubt Bitcoin is being used by terrorists around the world. You can read about it here, for example:https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/former-cia-analyst-says-terrorists-utilize-bitcoin-boost-funding/But should this information be seen as a negative connotation to Bitcoin? No. Terrorists also use fiat, Internet, cars etc., all those things normal people use in daily life, and we can do nothing about that.

What we need to care about here, why they can own so much money / bitcoin while they have to shirk the government.

    This is more political then bitcoin discussion! Terrorists are not here from yesterday, and bitcoin is just a tool in our hands, we alone decide will we use bitcoin for something good or bad, that stands for every other currency.Terrorists will always find a way to finance their wars, most of you are talking about bitcoin here but I`m pretty much sure that they are already using some other altcoin that offers more anonymity then bitcoin.

    No if Bitcoin was used for this it would be pretty horrid dude, it’d probably lead to people and governments just stopping the usage of Bitcoin within their countries and raiding the miners to pretty much put bitcoin on a standstill.Back on topic here, I do think Bitcoin could be used to support pretty bad causes but this could stand true for any other currency in the world too, it’s not like that supporting terroism is going to be the main point of usage for these currencies so they’re not going to punish the currency for this.So, it will be but it’s like anything else.

    Do we know who is terrorist and How we can know they use bitcoin or not ,bitcoin is future money System and who need use this System they can use it ,terrorists can use every money System because of we cant say money System has problem so bitcoin is like that too ,to use money System is not bad but suppory mean is different and bitcoin is not support to terrorists

    Terrorist needs funds to continue their terror act globally. Most of the terror group have been identified and their funds are being frozen by a lot of government around the world. Bitcoin is another option for them to transfer money in and out of the terror organization. They are taking advantage of the design of bitcoin, being de centralized and pseudo-anonymous. So most likely bitcoin has been used by terror group globally now.

    Yeah terrorist needs funds how can we know that they’re using bitcoin or not. Due to bitcoins anonymity there’s no way to know the identity of a certain person using bitcoin. And yes, bitcoin has been used to fund terrorist and illegal activities and most of them can be seen on Deepweb which they ask of bitcoin to do their services like killing, toturing, etc,. Actually I’ve been to deepweb first before encountering bitcoin and at first I thought bitcoin was a illegal money but after a few research I find myself wrong.

    I dont see any point in saying that bitcoin may be something that will support terrorist organizations, it is just a different kind of a way to store money, an asset that was created not so long ago.Indeed, it might be useful for such a criminal groups to transfer the funds all over the world. Bitcoin is basically anonymous in use, so you can transfer 50 bitcoins somewhere without anyone noticing: bear in mind that is 50 x 1300$ currently so it is 65000 USD in a single transaction.On the other hand, USD, GBP,EUR or any different currency may be used in a same way: the only problem is that you cannot send the money so easy- only through bank transfers but that requires laundering the dirty money.

    Do u think world leaders are willing to kill btc to make sure they can fight terrirists?

    If this is going to happen then the United Nations should take an action and kill our very own local currencies because mostly that is the medium that are being used by those terrorist for buying their arms. But I don’t think this is going to happen once world leaders sees a big potential that they can earn big money with bitcoin why they should kill it?

    I think the UN can not do anything to stop it. Terrorists always have a way to use their money in their criminal work, and of course, bitcoin is just the means by which they can do the work. What we need to care about here, why they can own so much money / bitcoin while they have to shirk the government. Clearly, there is always a real force that supports them with huge amounts of money.

    I don’t know if the UN is really doing something to fight against those terrorist, I have read somewhere that they are also the one funding those terrorists. In that case, there’s no way for any of us nor them to stop these people to support terrorist with bitcoin. As long as there will be source of money or bitcoin from rich hidden supporters, they will keep on existing.

    There is evidence of banks supporting terrorists, drug cartels and russia posted in this thread in the economics section:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1869013.0Banks still support criminal and illicit activities, there has been no effort made to stop them.The more public awareness on this, the better chances we have of banks ceasing and desisting with their nefarious activities.With all bitcoin transactions contained in a publicly accessible ledger, that reduces the likelihood of it being used by terrorist groups or for criminal activities as it leaves a type of paper trail which can be followed.

    That is possible . Because Bitcoin is a virtual currency, it is not under the control of the government so black money flows can be circulated everywhere. So perhaps terrorist organizations will use this to provide economic resources for their activities. What’s the exact word?

    that doesn’t make bitcoin bad, everyone is free to use bitcoin, and you can’t deny them no matter what they are or from where they come from, this is also part of the decentralizationwhat matter is that they don’t see bitcoin as a bad tool only because bad guys are using it, the same terrorists can easily use cash or electronic payment, therefore the problem are terrorist not what they use
    Exactly we have a freedom to used it where we want. As long as you know how to used it then you can. But I think even we are free to used it anywhere maybe we should be responsible and used it well. I hope no one will used it in a bad thing but sadly I agree that terrorists can used it also in their evil plans.

    Well I am sure that almost all the people in this forum have good intentions on how to use their bitcoins.  Yes I agree, indeed we have freedom on how, where, and when we use it.  But let us be practical and open minded, criminals and other people with bad intention and ebil minds will do anything to execute their plans.  And for sure, they used bitcoins to do this plan.

    agree with you, with anonymity of bitcoin, every people can used bitcoin no matter he is related with terrorist or not. but i think if we can make a good thing with bitcoin then why should we make it for bad thing? its still better to do a good thing in our life and make decent of money for our life and make our life is worth.
    That’s beyond the system control anymore, bitcoin is just a tool and it has its fixed function but if a person will decide to useit for illegal activities then it is his choice and it cannot be blame with bitcoin.If paper money is used for illegal activities like terrorism, how much more bitcoin which is more advance.

    i am agree with you and in my mind, bitcoin is independent, not related with the good or the bad thing. only user will know what he want to do with his bitcoin. bitcoin itself is only a tool and everybody can used it by free even for just owning in their wallet. i think bitcoin and fiat is the same, is only user that could determine what is the function for him self.

    That’s a realistic answer. Bitcoins are not yet used by terrorists and there are very rare chances of this to come true. People are little afraid of using it as main trading stream currency because of its decentralization and anonymity. However, all these issues will be resolved soon. So stay positive.

    Yes, it will not affect bitcoin’s reputation but this will hinder the success of it growing on a international-scale due to the potential trading scheme of it. Remember that due to bitcoin’s nature being decentralized, no one really controls the regulation and imposing of rules of bitcoins, thus making all trades and payments anonymous from one person to another. This poses a problem on the government on tracking monetary payment to terrorists and it is also possible for it being banned from different countries for security reasons.

    It doesn’t mean that because we are using bitcoin it would already give us the protection to hide illegal activities online, that will only happen temporarily as the government has all the resources and if they will make an effort against illegal transactions, they could trace them.If it’s untraceable, they would have ban this system because it’s a big threat to them, but it’s not happening and in fact we are growing now.

    Bitcoin is anonymous so that it can be freely used by anyone including the terrorists, I believe the current terrorist transactions will be redirected to the bitcoin so as to make them are not tracked.

    Like what he said the bitcoins is anonymous is so it can be uses in many illegal transactions for ex. silk road..,By necessity the history of all the bitcoins must be highly public. However, if one has bitcoins on paid to address, one can theoretically choose the coins they spend in a way that will minimize the amount of information they leak. Choosing personally generated coins or an address that you know doesn’t reveal information would protect you. Unfortunately, the default Bitcoin client doesn’t support this currently, so you must assume that your entire balance can identify you if any of the addresses can. someone is scammed and posts the address they were using on the Bitcoin forum. It is possible to see which address they sent coins to. When coins are sent which were previously send to this (the scammer’s) address, the addresses that receive them can also be easily found and posted on the forum. In this way, all of these coins are marked as “dirty”, potentially over an infinite number of future transactions. When some smart and honest person notices that his address is now listed, he can reveal who he received those coins from. The Bitcoin community can now ask some pointed questions, “Who did you receive these coins from? What did you create this address for?” Eventually the original scammer will be found. Clearly, this becomes more difficult the more addresses that exist between the “target” and the “identity point”. So it can be use to support terrorist beside it already uses in illegal transactions;,,.

    It can really happen, bitcoin truly is flexible and has a fast transaction transfer any where in the world if you really know the bitcoin address of the person you will send it too, actually it is long known that it is being used in an illegal way and the authorities can’t make a move about it cause they don’t control bitcoin.

    This pretty much follows the same sort of narrative that the MainStream Media tries to peg onto Bitcoin, which is that Bitcoin is only used by shady people on the internet to buy drugs and such. We all know this just isn’t true in the least and that that’s a small portion of all the Bitcoin usage which we see today.Bitcoin could be used by Terrorists, though it does seem to have to many issues to be able to used without an issue. As if they actually wanted to use the money they’d have to go through exchanges and such which would just be a hassle for them when they could just use cold hard cash.This is the same narrative we could use for cash “OH MY GOD IT’S BEING USED BY TERRORISTS, DRUG DEALERS, OTHER CRIMINALS, AND SO ON”

    I think bitcoin will always be used by two types of people in this world. The first person to use it for positive things and others will be used for negative things. Just as money in general bitcoin will always be used as such. And that the rights of every consumer, I personally use bitcoin for investment and never thought to use it in negative terms. Thank you

    I’m surprised with amount of ignorance in this topic, do you really think that governments are here stop terror and drugs? They are the ones who sell drugs and weapons, and they wish much bigger control of everything. Countries like US, Russia, Israel are making weapons and they sell weapons to so called terrorists, so they make profit out of it.People please start to think with your own head, don’t let them fill your brain with their lies!!!
    At the end of the day the Government is not getting the control they wanted. the picture on TV shows how it boomerangs. Are u also saying Government is benefiting from the wrong use of bitcoin?

    Ease of transaction as well the anonymity is the requirement for a terrorist or a unit. The same is possible with bitcoin, so we cannot completely deny that bitcoin is not used for terrorist activities. As one of the user stated everything has good and bad. The usage for good or bad depends upon the user who make use of it.

    It does make sense that terrorists might be interested in using bitcoin.However they can essentially do the same thing with any other fiat currency, in paper notes. They are in fact more untraceable than bitcoin because bitcoin has a public ledger, even though the identifiers are not linked to one single person.So you can’t blame bitcoin for providing a perfectly legitimate service.Much like bitcoin is being used for drugs, so is cash.

    Who can verify the news is factual? Or simply made up?I have a member that was the head of a major mafia gang with global network. He managed the financials of this gang and at one time he was responsible to launder as much as 20% of the entire supply of Bitcoin available. It was no easy task. He had to use various means to spread (sort of) the Bitcoin allocation to various investment assets under the radar. Or course some of the means to do so includes using the services of localbitcoins.com and some unknown Bitcoin exchanges. Others include buying Bitcoin tokens from Chinese mining companies using Bitcoin itself. Today the gang has no more Bitcoin left. All successfully laundered into fiat. Do you believe this story? Who can verify as facts?Even I can write fake news.And by the way, did I tell you of a friend that is the step daughter of the ex-Phillipino prime minister? Apparently she is in ownership of some half a ton of pure gold bars.
    first of all, the story is not made up!(http://news.8btc.com/bitcoin-plays-a-role-in-humanitarian-assistance) And i am sure what kind of organization CCD is. certainly in this case, it did something good. my point is everything has two sides, if it could be used for good, it can also be used for bad. But is btc strong enough to face all this?

    If a terrorist would want to keep anonimity its better not to use bitcoin, as its doable to trace the user with some effort put. His bitcoin exchange accounts could be suspended as it is required to give a personal data to withdraw a money into a bank account. So in my opinion the bitcoin gives no advantage to the terrorists and the cash is still the king in illegal activities. The only option I see that a terrorist can benefit from bitcoin is to store the value in bitcoins and make deals exchanging bitcoins for cash.

    Of course. Bitcoin does not decide on how it will be used, it just follows on how its user wants it to be used. If the user want bitcoin to be used to pay for crimes, used to buy drugs, pay prostitutes, or any other bad and illegal things, the user can freely do so. The user can also use bitcoin for good or neutral things such as paying for goods and services, donations and alike. Bottomline, bitcoin is just a tool for payment, neither good nor bad.

    That’s the right answer. Anyone with half a brain knows that it’s not the currency that’s bad but the user  in the criminal act. Bitcoin in itself is just as capable as and other digital currency or fiat currency and should not be condemned just because someone used it for a bad purpose. Almost everything in the world would be banned if governments ran countries like that. I think that Bitcoin will not have a problem with this issue.

    Bitcoin is completely free and it is used by everyone, if you think that terrorists use it for illegal activities, I think it is feasible. Bitcoins are really too convenient for them when they want to buy anything. And for terrorists, weapons are always important, and they certainly use bitcoin as a currency for exchange. The deep web is an example of that. Not too surprised about this, everything always exists bad side and good side. Bitcoin is no exception.

    It probably is already being used to support terrorists considering the illegal activities that we already know that it’s used for, an example of this is that it is used to buy illegal items on the darknet. Criminals are attracted to bitcoin as it offers anonymity (its very difficult to track). Being used by terrorists shouldn’t have a negative or positive impact on the currency as i am sure that these same terrorists use other currencies such as USD and probably even CAD.

    In all honesty, bitcoin is very prone into being used as a gateway to send illegal funds to terrorists due to its pseudo-anonymous nature; it is much harder to track as to where the money really went even though everytime you send a coin it leaves some taints or trails which you can follow—but that is easily prevented by using mixing services. Also, it is not new that weapons are being sold in exchange to bitcoins, so it might be that some weapons being used by terrorists are actually purchased using bitcoins.

    Bitcoin is completely free and it is used by everyone, if you think that terrorists use it for illegal activities, I think it is feasible. Bitcoins are really too convenient for them when they want to buy anything. And for terrorists, weapons are always important, and they certainly use bitcoin as a currency for exchange. The deep web is an example of that. Not too surprised about this, everything always exists bad side and good side. Bitcoin is no exception.
    You’re right, sometimes things can be used for good and some are used for evil. Does not rule out that bitcoin is used to support terrorists, even it is also used in dark web. Well, it has been used for a long time on the site, the important thing is that it should use it for good.

    In all honesty, bitcoin is very prone into being used as a gateway to send illegal funds to terrorists due to its pseudo-anonymous nature; it is much harder to track as to where the money really went even though everytime you send a coin it leaves some taints or trails which you can follow—but that is easily prevented by using mixing services. Also, it is not new that weapons are being sold in exchange to bitcoins, so it might be that some weapons being used by terrorists are actually purchased using bitcoins.

    But if you just replace bitcoin with $100 bills and you have the exact same answer. Bitcoins are just basically online cash. Technically you could always trace the serial number on a bill too (or at least banks or the government could).

    Just like US dollars are used for all illegal activities,bitcoin may also be used to support terrorists.We could neither control such things,nor we could blame bitcoins for that.Bitcoin is a decentralized currency created by satoshi to free people from banks.Its up to users how they use it.

    Bitcoin has a higher chance to be used in illegal activities and terrorism because of some of its features such as being decentralized and can use even without submitting some identification forms. It is most likely being used in the deep web according to the article I had read.

    Do you have any reference that use of bitcoin in any illegal activities or use of terrorism. Bitcoin is being decentralized because of political cause so don’t connect that to this.I noticed that you have read article for reference. If you please share to below my quote or PM to me. I share better info about it.

    yes they can do it without a doubt. bitcoin is open for all those who wants it , invested on it and want to earn thru it. we cannot dictate other person to how and when they may need to spend it. decision is in their hands.
    Agree with you mate, bitcoin has freedom to used by all people in the world, users can spend bitcoin anywhere they want if they want to used in bad things they can and bitcoin is not required to give full personal information of each user that is why it is possible for that scenario.
    bitcoin is global and anyone can use it for any purpose like all other kind of money. yes it is a currency just like fait money and can be used by them as well. it doesn’t have any restrictions for anyone and i think yes the possibility is there.

    First of all, i don’t know that Han Sol, the son of Kim Jong Nam using bitcoin well finally bitcoin can prove that it can be implemented for such a serious situation like this which is good for helping people to hiding or something. I personally think that bitcoin could be used to support terrorist or other criminals activity, we all know that at this time it isn’t too hard to increase the anonymity of the bitcoin like using mixer, fully anonymity altcoin etc, so for those reasons, i must confess that bitcoin could be used to support terrorist activity but remember bitcoin can be used for good though for example Han Sol’s case like op mentioned above.

Bitcoin users has their freedom to use it no matter where and when, you can do whatever with it, it depends on you. If it is used by the terrorists, it doesn’t matter because they are also people who are taking advantage of the digital currency, we can’t blame bitcoin or it’s user, there is no one to blame.

    The correct theses about the anonymity and unreachability of attackersusing bitcoin were voiced.

I guess it is a little hassle, they would rather use fiat for it, since it is just the same that they are going to support the terrorist.The only thing is they are anonymous if they are going to use bitcoin, but, still, the bottom line here is they are going to be revealed in the end because there is no secrets that can’t be reveal.

    But you don’t have to blame bitcoin for that. Terrorist is just taking advantage of bitcoin technology to used it in their illegal activities. This is one example why bitcoin is not being accepting by some countries. Because its de-centralize, government can’t control who are using it in illegal or illegal means. But I believed that fiat is only used to fund terrorist. So it doesn’t make sense for the government to ban bitcoin because both fiat and bitcoin can be used illegally.

    Yes and if bitcoin be used to support terrorists​ and other illegal activities, it will makes bad impact to bitcoin, the peoples who use bitcoin will be saw as bad people especially for the peoples who don’t know anything about bitcoin and they just know bitcoin be used to support terrorists​ from news of media, they take all of the news without learn about bitcoin and technology behind bitcoin.
    If terrorist use bitcoin for illegal activities what bad impact it has to bitcoin rather than the detractors will hang on to that aspect rather than understanding the real fact that they will use any method to fund their organization and most of the time fiat currency is used in terrorist activities so would that get a bad reputation for the currency they are using.

    I don’t believe about this, because there is no evidence to show that terrorists use bitcoins to fund their groups. I think this is just government propaganda, because coincidence bitcoin also move underground and can’t be supervised by anyone. I think terrorists are stuffed toys from rulers of big countries, financial support and weapons of war are donated secretly, many people are too religious and forget that religion can be used as a propaganda by a country that wants to destroy them.

    yes there is no evidence because we don’t know what for the transaction is send and we only know the amount in the transaction. without any proof, terrorists can send with any of amount and they still sending transaction into other wallet with their purpose, beside that they can send in any time without other people knowing what is their purpose to send and for who the amount they send. we don’t know if they have buy weapon or sending financial to other group or else.

    Hasn’t Fiat been used for thousands of years to support criminal gangs and the Mafias that are running around rampant? Of course Bitcoin will be used for both good and negative purchases, businesses but that doesn’t make Bitcoin bad in itself. Bitcoin is neutral but people who use it can be either good or bad apples. I prefer to be an optimist but I do believe Bitcoin will also be used for illicit purposes, this is the unfortunate behavior of human beings that makes it a possibility.

    If i remember first the bitcoin was introduced to use it for silk route to deal the underworld mafia transactions, and then after the silk route was shut down by the government the bitcoin technology was leaked out and then it came to the real world and everyone started to enjoy it, not it is more like a online digital currency. So it is upto the users to use it which ever way they want just like fiat currency is also used by both good and bad ways. Then why only bitcoin is getting so much of attention

    True. I’ve even watched the documentary of the deep web about the Silk Road. I don’t actually get the whole story and who really is the mastermind of the den because there are so many holes in the documentation maybe because the information of the investigation is classified. Since then bitcoins name began to sprout and scattered to the new age. Image is from Google:Quote from: robocop3 on April 28, 2017, 07:45:28 AM
    Sure btc get increased usage on terrorist activities and illegal purposes because of the anonymous nature.

    Fiat is anonymous itself but you will need to transact face to face in order to hand over a money and bitcoins advantage is just a click away and transactions is finished, but that doesn’t mean that BTC is bad. Having a cryptoccurriences or not, terrorism will continue.

But what if bitcoin be used to support some bad organizations, even terrorists? Is this already happening?  What i am worrying is if bitcoin be widely used for bad things, negative news would be all over and bitcoin price will drop. It will lead to tougher regulation. Do u think world leaders are willing to kill btc to make sure they can fight terrirists?
    I think bitcoin isn’t made to support a terrorist. I guess criminals only used bitcoin because of its advantage the “anonymity”. Besides not only bitcoin is being used in a wrong way but also fiat. I think it depend on us on how we will use it wether it is bad or good.
    I don’t think bitcoin was started to support terrorist activities, but the people who are into such activities with fiat and USD started using it because of the anonymity it provides. Now this has decreased to a greater extent when more and more started to give preference as an potential investment.

    You said it right, some of the politicians supports terrorists around the world and they fund the terrorist for their own desire or to get power over to that country. Bitcoin is very prone to illegal activities because of its security features like being untraceable and also high security in your account which makes the criminals use it.

    Can cryptocurrencies be used to support terrorist groups? First we’d have to displace their most important funding mechanisms, which are the US dollar and oil (some of which our governments gave to them directly). We live in a world where criminals use technology (money, telephones, shoes), but we don’t ban those technologies just because criminals use them. Most of humanity will use them for food, sanitation, healthcare etc. It is a fake promise that we’re going to stop terrorism by controlling everyone’s money, because all it does is exclude billions of people from the global financial system.

    Correct, the only thing about here is that we are worrying about this too much. Who cares if bitcoin will be used on supporting the terrorist? those who are going to use bitcoin in an illegal way should be the one worrying about this, and not us. But of course it would be a problem since it would be hard to track people who’s using it on the illegal ways because bitcoin is anonymous.Maybe that is why terrorist are taking this advantage to pursue their every mission to destroy the world, their enemies.

    Transaction over bitcoin is not illegal, that is why they can use bitcoin and use it’s anonymity to hide their selves from the authority that is why no one can guess if a transaction over bitcoin is use for illegal or not, we can not simply determine it for now and this kind of transaction are really added to the community as legal.

    They will use bitcoin as their money transaction but doesn’t mean it’s supported by people for bad doings like that. Even real money or tangible money can be used to support bad groups like terrorists. They will use their money in many ways on whatever they want.

    It is really an obvious answer. If Bitcoin is the most used currency in the dark web what more can it do to give terrorist at an advantage? But as of right now we still don’t have any proof that Bitcoin is being use by terrorist in their transactions. But to tell you another answer terrorist also have other ways to get what they want even without the aid of any kind of money. From looting villages for food to ambushing troops for weapons they can easily get what they want without money.
    Can’t deny that bitcoin is not used for illegal and terrorist activities. But right now we don’t have any proof describing bitcoin to be the most used currency for transaction by terrorists. USD is the much used currency for terrorism, and the volume Keep on increasing regularly. Other way is what the above mate quoted such as ambushing troops, demanding ransom with hijack, etc.

    Personally, I don’t think that real terrorists are using Bitcoin muchAnd by these I mean dudes from ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and similar gangs. Despite claims of being anonymous, Bitcoin is not anonymous and can still be traced provided enough resources are employed. But this is not the main reason. The scale of warfare that these groups are engaged in requires dozens if not hundreds of millions of dollars constantly flowing in to pay for ammo, arms, and meat. Bitcoin is simply not usable on this scale. Saudi Arabia seems to be spending literally billions of dollars on terrorism, obviously they don’t care about bitcoins

    It does not matter if it is illegal or not. It will probably be used anyway the same way it is already used on the deep web in the purchase of drugs and other illegal products. The only issue is if countries like the USA start to ban the coin because they don’t have any control over IF.

Another thing to consider: USA has sold over 100B USD worth of weapons to the Saudi’s –> http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/20/us-saudi-arabia-seal-weapons-deal-worth-nearly-110-billion-as-trump-begins-visit.htmlI am not sure how you define terrorism, but a nation that still beheads people and attacked Yemen against International Laws should not be given such a support. So then we should look at who is really funding terrorism and if you look at the bigger picture, then Bitcoin is deff not a worry.

    Bitcoin can be used with anything including to finance terrorist activity, this is because if they send money via bank funds will be on hold by the bank because they would for illegal activities.

    Yes it can be used to support terrorists, so can be USD or any other currency. Why governments hate bitcoins is because they can’t control bitcoin and its supply. As seen in case of Charlie Shrem, where he was held guilty of money laundering just because he sold bitcoins to one person out of so many persons who was involved in the case of drug dealing. They don’t held banks guilty of giving money to drug dealers and neither put the bank officials behind the bars.

    I am afraid, one day will be hacked Bitcoin
    what means of it? you want to hack or you afraid if bitcoin get hacked someday and the hacker get all bitcoin,,,if something like that it is maybe already happened. because some people get hacked and hacker will use any way to steal someone’s coin
    It is difficult to decipher the algorithm Bitcoin, Bitcoin no improvement in security, so for this reason no longer secure Bitcoin

    IMO, to be hacked is impossible seems this is decentrelized, once you submit wrong data you will be rejected from network. But there are possibility for phishing and mining manipulation attempt (by monopoly the hashing power).

    Fiat/Real money is being used since long time ago to support terrorists so how much more Bitcoin that is decentralize. the essence of Bitcoin is to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions. Bitcoin is money even though it is not tangible it is money and it will be use to deal with bad things in the world. So whatever the intentions of the individual that is holding a Bitcoin must be responsible.

    As long as bitcoin holds an equivalent value in the form of US dollars then it can be used to fund terrorists. If dollars can be used then how much more bitcoin which can be sent without the anti-money laundering commission eyeing your transactions. But of course any illegal transactions will still be uncovered and sooner or later the authorities will gonna find out who is behind this kind of illicit transactions.
    It is really an obvious answer. If Bitcoin is the most used currency in the dark web what more can it do to give terrorist at an advantage? But as of right now we still don’t have any proof that Bitcoin is being use by terrorist in their transactions. But to tell you another answer terrorist also have other ways to get what they want even without the aid of any kind of money. From looting villages for food to ambushing troops for weapons they can easily get what they want without money.

    We can not deny that technical dollars have achieved great financial investment success.Because bitcoin is not under the control of anyone, it can be a significant risk to your entire investment. From the time the investment is completed with the virtual number, bitcoin can become a deadly prey for network crime.

    Bitcoin is just like anything. USD, JPY, CHF, EUR, etc have a bunch of terrorists trying to make money with their currencies and the government does not really want to shut down the currency because their economy will collapse pretty easily.It’s pretty easily for the Government to try to blame Bitcoin for things because they think that people will stop using it.

    True. It’s just a medium, just travelling though frequences but like money it’s just a tool used for transaction. The problem here is we always blame something like BTC because we can’t stop the immoral acts so we blame it to the materials of society not knowing that the real problem lies on our selves. Humanity are just afraid to take responsibility to all of this that’s why they are passing the responsibility to tools and stuffs and beliefs.
