The excesses of the Bitcoin

The Bitcoin is not regulated in most countries, so it can be used in a malicious way as we have seen in several criminal cases during the last months. Indeed, it is not easy to know who owns a particular bitcoin. Here is the type of activity that can be hidden behind the use of this virtual currency:

– misappropriation of resources of thousands of computers by hackers to mine bitcoins,
– fake bitcoin exchange platforms,
– the ransom demand in bitcoins with a ransomware,
– the demand for ransom in bitcoins after a kidnapping,
– the demand for ransom in bitcoins after a theft of data (film, intimate pictures),
– the purchase of drugs in bitcoins in reality or on the dark net,
– the purchase of weapons in bitcoins in reality or on the dark net,
– the purchase of pedophile content in bitcoins in reality or on the dark net,
– money laundering,
– the financing of terrorism,
– the financing of secret operations (political destabilization for example),
– the misappropriation of money by dictatorships.
