There literally is no way to prevent child porn and any other illicit images or information on the blockchain. Let me tell you why.
First, the comparisons to the internet are moot since you can delete images on the internet, whereas you cannot on the blockchain. Saying that they only contain links to pictures and not the pictures themselves is again moot because you can store images as text and through other means essentially embedding illicit images on the blockchain forever. There is literally no way around this and some of your heartless souls are just calling this FUD. Fuck anyone who supports this and fuck anyone who supports child porn on the blockchain. There are a lot of people who are against this though on biz, and for that, I thank you.
Who fuds this shit, noone cares. The blockchain doesnt create child porn out of nothingness. Humans are the cause of all evil maybe we should just become extinct. People bang on about fucking morality but in the end deep down inside no one gives a flying FUCK because there is money to be made SIMPLE AS THAT. Now fuck off.
Shut the fuck up faggot. You aren’t bringing down the price of BTC to fill your short with your shit tier blog post. Die you worthless bitch
This is such an obvious false flag that it's not even funny. They were put there by a government in order to justify a full crypto ban.
>There is literally no reason to ever send CP via blockchain transactions >It would be trivially easy to catch the person who did it >The argument boils down to the notion that any storage technology which can't be deleted should be banned
USING THE SAME METHOD THEY USE TO SEND IMAGES ON ENCRIPTED ADDRESSES YOU COULD EASILY DO THE SAME BY SENDING ENCODED AUDIO MESSAGES ON YOUTUBE WITH A BLACKSCREEN VIDEO. THE WHOLE FUCKING POINT IS TO REVEAL A FUCKING 100 LINES LONG LINK TO OPEN IT ENCODED WITH BASE64.
YOU COULD LITERALLY DO THE TRICK WITH ALMOST EVERY TECHONOLOGY AND NO ONE WILL EVER NOTICE IF YOU ARE SMART ENOUGH.
THAT MEANS, IF YOU DONWLOAD THE FUCKING BLOCKCHAIN YOU WON'T DOWNLOAD CP BUT JUST ENCODED CODES TO REVEAL LINKS THAT SHOW IT.
WHAT YOU COULD ACTUALLY DO IS SENDING A MESSAGE WITH THE TX AND INCLUDE WEBSITE LIKS WITH CP CONTENT.
FUCK OFF NOW
You can draw child porn on money, so we should ban paper money.
>Be a metallurgist >Invent a new kind of metal >It's so strong that it's completely unbreakable >It's got so many applications that it could easily change the world >The government (who in this scenario owns all the production of every other kind of metal) decides to ban it >The reason? Somebody engraved a picture of child porn onto a sheet of the unbreakable metal
They're scared. They know what blockchain tech means to them, so they're flinging whatever they can at it in the hopes of making it stick.
What if I draw some CP on my hundred dollar bill? Do I have to throw it away?
RIP BTC 2018
So the way an image is "stored" is by encoding it as a base58 string. Splitting it into multiple 34 character strings which are basically bitcoin addresses (most will be empty but some which could be owned by pure chance). Then sending a small amount to each of those addresses + one more address that acts as an indicator for when the image parts end, in a single transaction.
For pretty much everyone it just looks like a regular transaction with bitcoin going to multiple addresses.
The only way to "view" an image is by knowing which transaction had the "image", then using a specific program that can read the image parts end address, piece together the bitcoin addresses, then decode the base58 string.
It's pretty much impossible to stumble upon CP by chance. You would need a specific program + know exactly which transactions had the "image".
And you can do this with anything If you are creative enough.
i dont think they are worried about people "stumbling" upon it. they are trying to prevent creeps from sharing to one another
Turn off the internet then.
You'll need Bitcoins in order to do this. At least $50 worth in Bitcoin, or more.
FBI can track that If money comes from exchanges.
you can do this with something thats as immutable and worldwide as btc/any blockchain?
they could do this on paper and send it via a kite. and then type it into a pc.
are you so fucking stupid that you would propose all media which can have anything written on it, because it could be used to distribute a mathematically hidden piece of cp?
this FUD is by far the weakest so far
The only negative point is that you can't delete it. But it's hard to actually decode and find out in which block the info is located. A lot of research desu.
Aren't you capable of doing the same on youtube videos with, for example, morse codes?
>all the brainlets knee-jerking
bitcoin is an immutable ledger. all the shitty examples you bring revolve around potential of storing cp or cp on some destructible unit of the medium.
blockchain is IMMUTABLE and therefore any cp that lands in it, unless cleverly made impossible, will be there forever.
You can "ban" bitcoin by destroying it fiat value, which is derived by demand. scare all normies away from bitcoin by show-trials of owners, and it will be worthless to everyone.
individual videos have owners an that can be prosecuted and files can be destroyed.
You have to pay fees to post an "image". Since that image is really just a small amount of bitcoin going to multiple addresses. Due to the nature of a bitcoin transaction, the image will also be extremely low quality/small (
a lot of things are immutable in the near future. that's actually a big part of what makes blockchain useful. you're seeing one of the first problems of new technology, and as the dimwit you are, you simply call for pulling the plug on the first signs of trouble.
circle jerking*. This thread is full of false analogies.
So how you'll discover source?
You can do this with anything, that's the joke. If you are worried that people could share it in between. Then you are worried with something that's impossible to control.
knee-jerking, as in knee-jerk argument
"Hmm, I've got a bunch of fucked up stuff to share with my fucked up buddies. I wonder how I'll do it. I know! I'll put it on a public, immutable ledger which can be directly traced right back to me for all eternity! Genius!"
ye you cannot be in possession of it but you also can't destroy it
>You can do this with anything and people get their shit pushed in if they do it with everything or own it in any conscious manner
We have had this knowledge of this being possible with blockchains for a long time. This event hasn't changed anything. So why are you suddenly against blockchains?
You cannot only share CP with this.
But any type of information.
So what now? That's the joke on crypto, inmutable ledger.
The joke is that you aren't storing a fucking photobucket folder. You are holding a bunch of random numbers that put together and decoded reveal an image.
