Department of Homeland Security Shuts Down Dwolla Payments to and From Mt. Gox
“The DHS issued a “seizure warrant” for the funds associated with Mt. Gox’s Dwolla account.”
“The Department of Homeland Security appears to have shut down the ability to use Dwolla, a mobile payment service, to withdraw and deposit money into Mt. Gox, a Bitcoin trading platform. A Dwolla representative confirmed the move to Betabeat. Chris Coyne, cofounder of OKCupid, posted a screenshot of an email he received from Dwolla, stating that due to recent orders from the Department of Homeland Security, Dwolla cannot complete the bank transfer to Mt. Gox.”
Americans should be VERY, VERY secure now that the Department of Homeland Security have shut down these EVIL, EVIL criminals.
That was sarcasm, by the way. And you’ll notice that there wasn’t details of a criminal accusation.
If you don’t realise what path the DHS is following, it’s the touchy feely modern version of the 1930s Germany Gestapo.

What to watch as the bitcoin drama develops
“The biggest bitcoin bulls say it has the potential to be the third major way to buy and sell goods that the world has ever known, after bartered goods and government-backed money.”
“Enough of the waiting game. The first big risk to bitcoin’s future is now upon us: a government smack down on the largest exchange, Mt. Gox. This will not be resolved quickly – if ever. By its sheer rate of adoption bitcoin is unlike any other online currency that’s come before. It’s murky whether bitcoin is a currency (taking the place of money), a security (it’s an agreement between two people that something is worth a set amount) or a commodity (metaphorically it’s based on a limited amount of “digital gold.”) So the government is likely arguing within itself about what branches should even be trying to regulate this thing. There may never be clarity on whether the US will allow bitcoin to thrive.”
Bitcoin is an decentralized network, controlled by every peer (that’s you) who run Bitcoin and enforces the network rules. It’s open source, and you don’t have to trust anyone. A bitcoin, is a bitcoin that can’t be seized without physical or malware intrusion – because it’s enforced by every peer.
Team America’s Dwolla bashing is just the start
“Last year US spies noticed a Danish gent called Torben Nødskouv had sent $20,000 to a German company in order to buy Cuban cigars – entirely legal under EU law. US authorities seized the money citing the US trade embargo with Cuba – an embargo which has no legal basis in Denmark, or Germany.”
These governments are just a giant looting exercise.
“Maybe we should take solace from Black Swan author Nassim Taleb who said on Twitter:”
“For Bitcoin to make it it needs to be banned by a few governments and critiqued by policy makers.”

“due to a domestic violence call” on the one hand and on the other hand the first thing that these rogue law enforcement officers do is abuse the wife, the supposed victim of the supposed domestic violence. Perhaps I am stupid for not understanding it’s completely fine for public servants to abuse the supposed victim of supposed domestic violence.
When, when, when are the American people going to tell rogue law enforcement to stop abusing them ?
