But Bitcon is untraceable!

No it's not.

In fact it's digitally irrefutable.

This is the bitCON address of one of the spammers who has been sending around the "you got caught masturbating and if you don't pay me $900 I'll squeal to all your friends!": https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/17jHsGecV53ro2LGzo53s5trTH6Qf3gksS

Two people paid him or her.

He now has taken the money.

And where he took it to is now also known.

One of those looks like a "dead drop" but the other is a wallet he's used before.

You can transfer Bitcon and other "digital currency" around but that by itself doesn't you any good; eventually you have to transfer it to someone's wallet in exchange for a good or service or you have to transfer it to a wallet on an exchange where it can be turned into dollars, euros or similar.  In either event, or if  a transfer "crosses" a wallet you've used for any transaction in either category in the past or future you are instantly and permanently identified in an irrefutable manner that absolutely pins every related transaction in any related wallet to you personally -- and yes, that will stand up in court.

Oops.

This bull**** is trivially traceable to a real person if anyone cares.

Ok ****heads over at the FBI, DOJ and elsewhere:  DO YOU GIVE A CRAP OR ARE YOU ALL WATCHING PORN ON THE TAXPAYER'S DIME?  THIS IS REAL EXTORTION AND REAL THEFT AND IT'S A CRIME. GET OFF YOUR ASSES AND DO YOUR DAMNED JOB.

The US Government should drone the **********s doing this ****; they obviously are both not being arrested and people are sending the money, which I can trivially trace and so can you.

If that wasn't true they wouldn't keep spamming incessantly -- and they are.
