    Default Bitcoin: Researchers find child pornography in blockchain

    Blockchain is the cornerstone of the crypto-currency Bitcoin. According to researchers, users have managed to infiltrate child pornography content into the unalterable data collection. Your possessions could then be illegal almost worldwide.

    Researchers have discovered in the Bitcoin Blockchain several illegal content that has been infiltrated by users and can not be deleted due to the functionality. As they explain in their paper (link below), the researchers at RWTH Aachen University and the Goethe University Frankfurt / Main have compiled various methods with which information chunks that are not directly related to transactions can be stored in the blockchain. Altogether, they found more than 1600 files, which were channeled into the Blockchain in this way: Among them are two link lists, which refer to child pornographic content, one is a picture that is even child pornography.

    Their paper:

    The scientists are highlighting a well-known problem that could have massive consequences for the blockchain and bitcoin as a whole. In the blockchain all previous Bitcoin transactions are collected. In order to exclude manipulations, a subsequent change is not only not intended, but is actively prevented by the cryptographic process. Using various methods, users can, in addition to the transaction data, send information to the blockchain, for example as a comment. As early as 2014, jokers had inserted a virus signature via such a path, whereupon virus scanners deleted the entire blockchain. Bitcoin clients then re-downloaded the multiple gigabyte file until it was removed again.

    As the authors explain, it is illegal in the majority of states to have child pornography content. But if they are not directly removable on the blockchain, this could jeopardize the entire cryptocurrency because it is necessary to download the complete database. Although there are no judgments, but judgments from Germany, the US and Britain suggested "that illegal content such as child pornography could make the possession of Blockchain illegal." In addition, the problem is not limited to Bitcoin, because other cryptocurrencies rely on the blockchain technique and are sometimes even more vulnerable when more information can be added to transactions.

    Amazing what some humans waste their "intelligence" doing.

    Perhaps they have too much time on their hands?

    Thank you, I blelieve the current nwo bankers ar a little peeved the peope have gone around them and can self correct without them/WS bankers, fudging the economic numbers in cyberspace for deletion/ until it crashes.
    I think the people are realizing that they abused their trust since Reagan and aren't a safe bet no matter how many letters they switch around on their names.
    My song.
    "Emancipation, is Separation;
    and Separation is Liberation"

    From the banks and corporations
    Any other entity
    Causing you harm.
    Set the wheels in motion
    Sound the alarm
    The locusts are chewing
    in enormous swarm
    Somebody's watching
    And bringing the storms
    So heed the word
    Take a stand
    Gather in justice
    Get out of the land
    Emancipation, is Separation, from the corporation and a facist nation, until liberation.

    I get a nice bluesey guitar twanging before each sentence, like a Mike and Molly theme, but a Samuel Jackson belting it out.

    Heck most of the effective snatchers of children have the $$$ to pull it off and get away. When they start private secret clubs, all hell breaks loose on the public's safety of children.Bankers also start rumors on other currency to drop the trust that they themselves have publicly abused. 3 crashes in one century is jsut totally too much and NOT a way for Gen X, Y and Z. WE know cheats when we see, hear or "feel" them. Their darty eyes flashing and sweaty palms trying to "run game." Just PR for game, all depends on the $alesman.
    There will be rumors, always check and verify by more than 3 or four articles or "local" on the spot reliable sources.
    Bottom line, if you catch them after your children, don't be soft. Be very, very very hard. I call it "think knots." Knots left on the body long after that justified confrontation, that whenever in their life, they so much as brush up against it, they remember "why" they got it and the deterrence is permanant. The slap on the wrist for child rape/porn is the most monsterous miscarriage of justice in this world's era. I can see the teen years confusion where a boy teen or girl teen even entertain the "older man or woman" teacher, but the children....children below 16 here and 10 around the world, that can not protest, are sold into sex trade, or just used until no longer wanted just takes me beyond reasonable justice sometimes. So...having gone through similarities as this damage, I'll leave this for now. Still waiting to no longer have that "heat". I learned it's a lifetime damage...they are right. You never look at life as safe again. That is why I said a island off from the public, guarded like Guantanamo off shore from them and put them all there to prey among themselves. The most savage survives, but....he's alone in his madness.

    Well, for me, that puts any use of blockchains such as cryptocurrency indefinitely off the table. I had been hesitant to buy any cryptocurrency because I would first have to learn how to protect my currency from cunning thieves. I have leaned how to protect my USA dollars from any thieves other that the USA Feds - who printed them. And like most Americans, I have learned how to cope with that.

    I suspect that the 'big money' users of bitcoin put the pornography in the blockchain so as to convince people to force changes that allow easy and legal editing of such blockchains which would allow covert corruption and control of the cryptocurrencies. I suspect that these 'big money' users know how to push the value of those 'coins' up or down as they desire. How does that serve me? [Covert Corruption and Control of CryptoCurrencies = CCCCC or C^5. Put that together with 5G.]

    I simply cannot abide any form of slavery - child sexual abuse being the worse kind of slavery. Debt-slavery being the most common, tolerated and accepted form of slavery. Trump talks about putting drug traders to death. What about human slave traders? I do not accept the death penalty, but I do like Lifebringer's island concept.
