RE: Legal Ramifications -- The not talked about cost of a 51% attack

in #bitcoin3 years ago (edited)

Hmm you bring up a good point here. Does this go in favor of regulation of cryptos or would it be possible to punish someone or a group for performing a 51% attack?

Is it possible to find the bad actor in the case of something like this? My guess would be it depends on the privacy of the coin and a host of other things.

I think it is unethical and wrong, but I’m not sure if it is illegal. If they are breaking a law of some sort they should be punished
