Bitcoin and Assassinations, Like Peas in a Pod

Andy Greenberg at Forbes:

Sanjuro’s grisly ambitions go beyond raising the funds to bankroll a few political killings. He believes that if Assassination Market can persist and gain enough users, it will eventually enable the assassinations of enough politicians that no one would dare to hold office. He says he intends Assassination Market to destroy “all governments, everywhere.”

This website is kinda like Kickstarter, but for political assassinations. Everyone can chip in some  Bitcoin to kill say, Barack Obama (who is currently sitting on 40 Bitcoin). The highest bounty is on Ben Bernake, chairman of the US Federal Reserve – 124.14BTC for his head on a plate. If someone takes out Bernake, they’ll be rewarded the Bitcoin, which works out to about AUD$85,000. It’s a new world people!
