El Salvador becomes the first country to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender alongside the US...

There are way better, cheaper, safer and quicker options for criminals than Bitcoin. And the general sentiment in this thread is as if the people of El Salvador are mostly criminals, and that to me is quite disgusting.

I don't think anybody has said or implied that at all. Like most Latin American countries, I'm sure El Salvador has a pervasive and active criminal element.

To further dispute that claim,, AFAIK, Donald Trump doesn't have an account at Techspot.

Leaving this here... Some actual knowledge instead of FUD.
I answered each of your posts carefully pointing out, with facts, where you were wrong. You keep responding while ignoring all my points, stating random beliefs and more recently with random videos. Your previous video actually proved my point by showing that Darkside were never caught even though you say that Bitcoin transactions are traceable. I didn't bother watching this video as it seems to have nothing to do with what the discussion is about.

Yes. I indeed have not bothered replying to you. Nothing personal. It's just not worth discussing further, because the arguments will remain the same. As for the video... It was not posted specifically for you. It does tackle the El Salvador adoption though, which is why I posted it.

One of the few things you've posted that actually makes sense. You've just been promoted to my very select list of ignored users :)
You think criminals will use Bitcoin at a significant rate because you think it keeps them anonymous and they are not stupid. I think they will not, because even if you can bypass KYC, Bitcoin is not only not anonymous, it does nothing to hide your IP and everything can be tracked. I agree that they are not stupid and that is the exact reason it will never be a primary method of criminal activity.

I'm very confident that my knowledge of Bitcoin and crypto transcends your own by a significant margin. You're free to disagree, but your arguments are all the same wrapped in different packages. I happen to disagree with your stance, and I noticed that the same argument kept being repeated, thus, I disengaged. If that is reason to ignore someone, well, you do you.

The only thing I might regret is not being able to show you the receipts later.
