It's called a signature.
We still use it.

What's to stop me faking your signature? What's to stop me adding a few zeros?


And what if I want to sell the debt. How do I prove to someone else that it's actually your signature?

See Checks.

You can't fake signatures on cheques? You can't forge amounts on cheques?

Incorrect. Vauxy asked this:

if we had a unified world government would currency even be necessary?

The answer seems to be yes.

Because Rushy:

http://www.usatoday.com/experience/las-vegas/vegas-buzz/the-d-las-vegas-introduces-citys-first-bitcoin-atm/9864615/

Those things are pretty awful, though, specifically that company (Robocoin) as they require pretty much all of your personal information, including fingerprints and passport, making the experience very obnoxious. I've heard more stories of Bitcoin ATMs making people hate Bitcoin more than love it because the ATM itself sucks.

When a criminal is found to have illegally obtained property, isn't it the job of law enforcement to try and return it to its rightful owner?

Did he illegally obtain property? He ran an illegal website, but the people who gave him money did so willingly. (As far as I recall)

Why would Bitcoin crash? They're not selling it on an exchange, they're auctioning the coins. No one with enough money to buy those coins is simultaneously stupid enough to liquidate them on an exchange.

When a criminal is found to have illegally obtained property, isn't it the job of law enforcement to try and return it to its rightful owner?

That depends on whether the law enforcement thinks it will get a better deal by selling them.

No, that's a complete waste. I bet those druggies that bought from silk road when bitcoin was $10 are all crying because "wahh wahh I could have been rich"

Bitcoin seems to be the most popular form of payment on the deepweb for obvious reasons. I have been browsing it out of curiosity and have already seen some pretty fucked up shit. Some things (like hired hitmen) seem like scams, actually... Most of it seems like scams.

Unlikely, since that would be an unnecessarily dangerous way to scam somebody.

Not when it is mostly anonymous and payments are made before the assassination. No sane person would report that a hired "hitman" stole their upfront payment for an assassination.

I'm not talking about legal consequences. Scammers can scam whomever they please. No matter how protected you think your identity is, it would be best to avoid upsetting people who hire hitmen.

There are very, very few actual "hitmen" because the scenario usually runs like this: Two fat wankers meet in jail. Fat wankers leave jail. One fat wanker thinks his wife has been cheating. Asks the other fat wanker to kill her. He does. Two fat wankers go back to jail. The end.

Until I see an actual new story where a hitman has been paid by bitcoin (and they must have recieved a fair few payments now) then imma call grade A bullshit.
