• Venezuela plans to introduce a registry of Bitcoin miners:
According to local sources, 22. December the government of Venezuela plans to launch an online registry for miners Bitcoin. All the Bitcoin miners in the country will have to register there. The registry is the first step to creating a full legal framework in respect of taxation and regulation on mining crypto currency on the territory of the country. Supporters of the decision believe that this registry will protect domestic miners. Angel Salazar, member of the Advisory Council will assist the government of Venezuela in the implementation of the norms on crypto currency, said:
Miners working in difficult conditions, and to create a formal structure, with the help of this registry will help to protect them from wymuszeniami and prosecution.
At a recent press conference, the newly appointed senior Wenezuli on crypto currency, Carlos Vargas said that the government is creating the register for more accurate setting and monitoring mining of Bitcoin, saying ominously:
We want to know who they are, we want to know where they are, we want to know what equipment they use.
Feet on crypto currency in Venezuela has become popular over the past few months, as it provides employment earnings as poor and rich Wenezuelczykom who have suffered financial crisis in the country, which is hiperinflacją.
Although mining for crypto currency in Venezuela is not technically illegal, local police have arrested miners from the beginning of 2016., accusing them of theft of electricity, stock fraud, cyber-crime and the financing of terrorism.

In addition, the Venezuelan police is highly corrupt – the miners often asked to pay money in exchange for the dropping of charges. An example of this is the following story.
• Kryptowaluty or contribute to a crime?:
Reuters reports that in Denmark I’m sure the Italian was sentenced to 6 years in prison for ordering the murder of his ex-boyfriend. Payment for the order was made in Bitcoinach. Payment 4.1 BTC was held in March, at a time when that amount was worth about 4,000 dollars. Agreement for digital wallet killer was submitted to the court as evidence. Murder is never justified, and ex-boyfriend zleceniodawczyni was present at skazywania and talked to the woman after the process.
The anonymity of digital currencies has led to the fact that they have become a popular choice for criminals. Because of this, dark sites, such as AlphaBay and SilkRoad use Bitcoin for the transaction. Opponents accuse Bitcoin of the cryptocurrency to use it for money laundering and hampering investigations.
At the same time, proponents of digital currencies can easily notice that the vast majority of actions, such as money laundering, terrorist financing and other financial crimes are carried out using traditional currencies. Siân Jones, founder of EDCAB European digital currency and Blockchaina before the Committee of the European Parliament, said:
The perception of crypto currency as anonymous, this is largely a myth. The assertion that kryptowaluty are mainly used for money-laundering, are clearly overstated and unfounded. The ability to track past deals makes that virtual currencies are quite unsuitable for money laundering.
