      Wow, years since I logged in here and still all you techno-geniuses haven't got crypto figured out.

      Amusing.

          When you get proper money you can prove it's not proceeds of crime by showing invoices, business relationship, contract etc.

          With bitcoin it's not possible since you don't know who really sold it, unless you "mined" it yourself and then sold, but how to prove money don't come from money launderers?
          Same way you do with anything else.
          The only way you have tainted Bitcoin is by actually doing something tainted.

            Which was entirely predictable and has hardly even started.

              Like buying for cash half price TV that has "fallen off the back of a lorry", only with Bitcoin there is public audit trail that can lead to you at any time in the future (like during background check)

                That's an example, certainly.

                If you want to do something shady use a privacy coin, or some cash, wear a hat, sunglasses, that sort of thing.

                Bitcoin will hang you out to dry.

                  not really.
                  Bitcoin is very public, and very secure at the same time.
                  Full visibility of every transaction is very public. Who has the private key for each wallet is very private.
                  The exposure comes when the wallet on an exchange, or other known entity, who can be subpoenaed, is transacted with.
