lewismarktwo: zeroman987: lewismarktwo: Mad_Radhu: libranoelrose: Mad_Radhu: Seems like shipping is going to be the weak link in buying drugs online. It is hard to keep that anonymous for the buyer.

Why would it be hard?

Wear a hood and dark glasses when you drop off your package at a public mail box with postage already attached.

Buyer, not seller. Someone has to receive a package, and to get a PO Box you need to provide two valid forms of ID.

If only ID was easy to forge...

Did you know many state government services are required to give illegal immigrants a new SS# any time they need one?

State governments don't issue ss#'s and its really hard to get a new one.

Did you eat lead paint as a child or were you born this way?

You don't even know what you don't know, bro.


So lead paint then I see.

What made you decide against being born this way?

Someone born that way would never use the word bro.

For all of the "Falling Down" I'm mad ad hell and I'm not gonna take this anymore" types in this country along with the mass shooting nut jobs, I wonder why more of them don't try to take some of these kinds of scumbags with them? It's always kids, regular people in malls and movie theaters.

Nemo's Brother: Rapmaster2000: Bitcoin had way too many people invested in it for spite; to spite the banks and the Fed and the mainstream investing community and probably something else.

Spite is emotion.  Don't invest on emotion.

Bitcoin is good for concealing drug transactions.  Paying a dealer in straight cash is another way.

I would imagine more dealers take cash than BitCoin.


Apparently it's favored by illegal online pharmacies abroad.  They can't take cash, and credit card companies won't deal with them, but a customer can buy bitcoins then turn right around and use them to order prescription drugs.

I was reading that some traders view trading bitcoins as betting on the size of the black market economy.

El Pachuco: Crotchrocket Slim: You only have to prove where you got your real money from if the authorities have other evidence to suspect you're making money in illegal enterprises.

As someone who has spent the past eleven years working for himself, after fifteen years of standard by-the-book W-2 regular jobs, it still surprises me how much I am able to make "outside the system" and how little of it would actually be known to the IRS unless I report it.  And I'm in a legit profession, nothing illegal.

I've also met quite a few others who do quite well off the books - gardeners, handymen, tattoo artists, real estate investors - without being involved in criminal stuff.  The shadow economy is a lot bigger than I ever imagined, even here in the well-regulated and reported US.


And yet you can't use the phrase shadow economy correctly.

jso2897: redly1: wow, so that imaginary currency is just like all the other imaginary currencies

Money itself has never been anything but an abstract concept. There is no such thing as "real" money.



Labor value.

mizchief: Dinki: A digital currency based on esoteric and murky footings with nothing backing it and no real regulation. And people wonder how it could be manipulated?

It's cute how people still think US Dollars or any other fiat currency are backed by anything. It's no different than if china decided to flood the market with cheap bonds in exchange for Euros or anything else.



They are backed by the war-waging might of the empire fatherland Homeland.

Earguy: I once read that bitcoin was a preferred currency of drug dealers.  I have no idea why that is, or how it would work to their benefit.


IIRC bitcoin is the preferred currency on Silk Road.

Who would stand to benefit from throwing doubt on bitcoin?

Not world-renowned cryptographer Adi Shamir, so maybe you're barking up the wrong tree.

"Hey man, how much for an ounce?"
".....one bitcoin."
