LAST CENTURY, if you wanted someone dead, you’d have to have a large amount of cash and meet the hired assassin in some dark alley.
WE’RE BARELY 14 YEARS INTO THE 21ST CENTURY
and as recently as last year, you can pretty much purchase a kill. ANONYMOUSLY. And, all you need are bitcoins.and an internet connection. You have entered into a world where criminals and novices sell and buy everything from stolen credit card numbers to black tar heroine — and not for dollars or euros.
But, be afraid…BE VERY AFRAID. Why? Because the level of anonymity the criminals believe exists using bitcoins and the internet is shrinking.The FBI, the US Government, and Local Governments are finding and arresting not only the owners of these internet networks and have brought charges against one of the internet’s largest virtual currency companies.
Bitcoin is unregulated.
All governments are concerned about their lack of control over virtual currency (and about collecting their taxes).
How long will this type of currency exist? Well, TOR is not foolproof; even NSA hasn’t been able to crack it, but it’s really high on their priority list (thank goodness). So, just because you might have, or think you have, anonymity, the FBI can still identify you.
DO YOU USE BITCOINS OR SOME FORM OF VIRTUAL CURRENCY?
It is possible to purchase other items using bitcoins. Subway Corporate is open to their use. You can now bid with bitcoins for the antiques sold on the Aspire Auctions website according to auction house president Michael Kondratov. You can also pay for haircuts, honey, legal representation, and almost anything from BuyByBitcoin…an Amazon-like company in Australia.
So, how can you mine bitcoins? Just do an internet search for “How to Get Started…” or “How to Get…”. But, I think you might want to learn how the value of your dollar / euro compares to a bitcoin before to actually purchase.
