German scientists announced the discovery of child porn in the chains of bitcoin transactions

Researchers from the Rhine-Westphalian Technical University of Aachen have discovered that in the locker of bitcoin contains hundreds of references to child pornography and at least one image that is probably hers. This was reported at the conference held on the Norwegian island of Curaçao.

In addition to transactions, little notes or files can be recorded in the bitcoin block. Researchers analyzed 1600 files stored in the chains of crypto currency transactions, among them eight files with sexual content were found. In one of the pictures, presumably, was a minor. Two more files contained 274 links to content with child abuse, 142 of which were related to darknet.

According to scientists, illegal pornography can make illegal blocking in most countries: according to researchers, the storage of such materials is prohibited in 112 countries.

Since all the data from the block is loaded and stored permanently by users, they are responsible for any content added to the blocking system by others. Therefore, it would be illegal to participate in the system based on the blockbuster if it contains illegal content.

from the RWTU study

As noted by the publication Gizmodo, the ability to attach files is one of the most important for modern systems on the blockbuster. For example, thanks to this function, you can use smart contracts.

The issue of child pornography in the detachment is raised for the first time: before that, the intelligence services assumed that the chain of transactions could be used to spread viruses.

Blocking is a chain of transactions, which includes all the confirmed operations. It is a file that is stored on the computers of users working with crypto-currencies. The block is constantly synchronized and adds new transactions if they appear.

According to the idea of ​​the creators of technology, thanks to this transaction in the system on the blockroom it is impossible to forge, unless you compromise most of the network. Theoretically, the bitcoin block must keep transactions and files unlimited time.
