Untraceable currency used to buy dodgy gear off the likes of silk road.

Or to buy worse shit via other places on TOR networks

Nope, you buy them with real world money and they can be cashed out for money as well

It's obviously starting to spook the authorities, can't have an alternative means of exchange now can we.

It's not new though, they've been tracking bitcoin flows for years to try and ID the ones behind silk road along with some of their bigger sellers.

Reckon TOR/Silk Road types want it to be used across other places, make it a little less dark corner of the Internet type stuff, to make it that bit harder to find some of the ones profiting from it all

Wouldn't touch the stuff, you're bound to end up on a list somewhere eventually, TOR & BitCoin is a nonce's anonymous paradise

hope he does well, any state involvement in the traffic of money is utter tripe.

'Good' enterprise is always needed. 'Bad' Enterprise will always come a cropper even without state involvment

Before Silk Road or similar existed, TOR and bitcoins were being used to Exchange some f***ed up shit online.

And I don't read papers

Silk road is eBay/amazon for drugs and other random dodgy stuff

TOR is fine to google, it's The Onion Router, named for something to do with layers
Every bit of info you send/receive over it goes via multiple random connections and gets re-encrypted at every step, as close as you can get to being completely anonymous.
There's sites like Silk Road on it, but you can't search or google for stuff, you need to know the urls to get to the sites

TOR is a network, where you connect to a site through a chain of other computers, and the others in that chain can't read the information that travels through them because it's encrypted.

This gives a much greater degree of anonymity than your regular connection to the internet. In an ideal world (at least, ideal from the perspective of those who use TOR) everyone would use it, which would mean everyone was anonymous. In practice, though, it's only used by those who need such anonymity - why would you need it? The authorities don't really care about those horse ******* videos, after all.

So those who do use TOR tend to fall under the category of p***os, drug dealers or political types. The Silk Road is a popular message board that's only accessible from TOR* where people sell all kinds of shit, mostly drugs. So TOR and bitcoin are terms that tend to be synonymous with each other, because people who need a hidden connection need a hidden way to pay for things.

Basically, you're not going to get yourself into a situation whereby you could get into trouble unless you're actively searching for that kind of content.

* Actually that's not strictly true, there's a website called tor2web which lets you visit anything on TOR via your normal internet connection, but suffice it to say you could get yourself into a lot of trouble that way.
