“Bitcoin’s (BTC) Story May Have Come To An End” – The Independent Republic | $8,828.85

German researchers from the RWTH Aachen University, stepped on a weird and shocking discovery while exploring the digital currency’s blockchain archives. Apparently, Bitcoin’s (BTC) distributed ledger is being used, besides storing monetary information, to store hideous links and data connected to some hundreds of files with illegal pornographic content of underaged children.

Over 1600 files found in 1.4% of the blockchain, with a couple of them containing links to the sexually abusive imagery of young children, mostly stored on the dark web.

Other files included copyright violations as well as malware, the researchers say, while they suggested that this could be a reason to the end of Bitcoin’s (BTC) popularity since possession of child pornography is illegal in almost all jurisdictions.

Porn of any sort will still exist with or without blockchain, please stop being narrow minded like those people in the market, who would blame burger if someone died of eating burger.… Read more »
