Spoken by someone who truly has no clue what he's talking about. Anything of value can be used to "launder money and avoid paying taxes", in fact if you're trying to avoid paying taxes with dollars, you simply pay with cash and receive cash as payment. There's nothing you can do with cryptocurrency that you can't do with a physical dollar, except, with cryptocurrency there is a ledger you can't, no matter how hard you try, destroy. There will always been a record of you sending and receiving cryptocurrency, but a pass from one person to the other of a physical dollar? None at all. It's because this community has gone far, far down. Instead of being a community who appreciates hardware and talks about it, it instead has turned into (in the last few years) to tin-foil hat and higher-than-thou hatred.
