You should be reading the deep thoughts available at:

https://opaque.link/

Here's a sample from their latest:

Three main risks present themselves for Dropgangs:

Cryptocurrency tracing: Since all payments are conducted with cryp-

tocurrency, the use of “Privacy Coins” has established itself within the

Dropgangs. However, customers usually only have less private currencies

available. This requires a functional exchange infrastructure between less

and more private cryptocurrencies. This vector of attack is currently

exploited by law enforcement.

• Communication tracing: Dropgangs necessarily operate infrastructure to

keep in contact with their customers. Law enforcement can potentially

identify and track this infrastructure to find the operators. However,

operators usually have access to sufficient anonymization technology and

are well trained in using it.

• Surveillance of potential dead drop locations: Potential dead drop locations

can be identified and surveilled by law enforcement to find those serving

them. This poses a number of problems for law enforcement. First, the

number of potential dead drop locations is very high which requires a lot

of resources to surveil to even catch anybody by pure luck. Second, it is

hard to distinguish customer and supplier at this moment if the dead drop

operator uses basic protective tradecraft.

It is likely that the black market will solve the cryptocurrency tracing risk

soon. Technology in this field is developing quickly. It is likely that either new

exchange methods are found, like peer-to-peer decentralized on-chain swaps,

or that additional privacy layers are added to less private cryptocurrencies.

Cryptocurrencies like Beam and Grin both provide a reasonable amount of

privacy while also supporting atomic on-chain swaps between them and widely

accepted cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

The other two risks are already handled well by professional operators in the

field.

There is a novel that addresses some of these issues for black market operators. I would personally however prefer all drug dealers to be shot on sight but alas we are not there yet.

Pro-drug hedonists want people to have drugs so they won't be miserable - even if they die.

Anti-drug fascists want people to be miserable and enslaved, so they emphasize torture and prosecutorial over-reach, even though their sadism weakens the state that arms them and the nation that gave them birth.

While the pro-drug and anti-drug fanatics descend further into insanity, society deteriorates. When the inevitable crisis causes a noticeable breakdown of civilization, it will be painful, but at least the normies will be forced to log in and smell the ashes.

The world is so fucked, might as well have some fun before going down, but there's still a small glimmer of hope, idk.

Drugs will never stop existing, better to just learn to live with them.

I know cyberpunk is all about drugs and vice, but at some point you have to start separating fiction from reality. Nihilism and drugs are stuff that's cool to read about, not something you would unironically want in your life but you are still a fag if you support the war on drugs.

Somewhat true, it applies 100% to opiates while other drugs sometimes differ from meds like nootropics that most scientists use only in that ones are prohibited and others are not. And i'm not even talking about the use of drugs in combat.

That's a rather ironic statement, you do know that many every day things can affect your mood, drugs just do it more strongly, drugs aren't that bad, don't swallow the state's propaganda.

Though i get you completely honestly.

Wouldn't the easiest way to lessen the risks be to popularize the use of privacy coins?

The State's propaganda seems to be pushing drugs imo. Possibly because it earns them a lot of revenue.


 No.54622

>>54616

The states propaganda has been doing the exact opposite except in the case of a few 'kosher' drugs - i.e. alcohol, nicotine, caffiene, etc. - which don't encourage dissolution of the state's culture or the questioning of it's values.

Remember that the first victims of the war 'on' drugs (which has now devolved into working with cartels) were the psychedelic/entheogenic family of drugs.
