According to the additional reading article assigned in this module (Kethineni et al., 2018), the authors pointed out that Bitcoin and Darknet are often used by cybercriminals as a means of illegal online trading.

What features or aspects of Bitcoin and Darknet do you think motivate potential cybercriminals to commit online trafficking such as humans, drugs, firearms, and wildlife trafficking? What theories of traditional crime that we have discussed throughout this course would you apply to explain the link between Bitcoin/Darknet and cybercrime? And what responses would be effective to enforce and prevent such types of cybercrimes?
