Like Bitcoins without which the criminals of this world would have a harder time transferring their money... Just joking of course, but without Bitcoins this world would be a better place for sure.

Disagree. Bitcoin in itself is a technology. Transfers are still done through banks as Bitcoin in itself doesn't carry any dollar or euro.

Now you can argue that guns are also tool but they can be used for bad actions. And I would agree as the primary design for a gun is to kill the others. The primary Design of Bitcoin, or whatever other P2P database with consensus for the next input is not to facilitate the exchange of money for criminals .

You can use a variant of Bitcoin just to store data in a very robust way. Actually you can use it to store Wikipedia around the globe or, once again because tools can be misused, child pornography.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
