This one guy who has been convicted trafficked more than 2% of all bitcoins (not 31 of them), and he is just one of dozens.

Bitcoin was just a little novelty, before it started being used for money laundering, which drove its selling price up. Hardly anyone bought bitcoin before that, and everyone who invested in it was well aware of why its price had gone up, so are morally and ethically complicit.
Whose word is that? AFAIK, the gold standard was around for a long time, before the dollar became the standard for international trade, so where you get this bit of history from, I have no idea -- maybe DD was on wikipedia, again.

Legally and lawfully. The vast majority of ethical problems with weapons occur during their usage, not their manufacture.

So did lots of things, but maybe you've heard the expression that two wrongs don't make a right?

In fact, you can stack up as many wrongs as you like, but the stacking won't make any of them right.
I haven't insisted anything of the kind.

I have, a few times, stated the unarguable fact that the reason bitcoin became so expensive is because it is used by drug traffickers/cartels/whateverTF-they're-called to launder their profits from human misery.
That is, without any doubt whatsoever, an unarguable fact. If you would rather I lied than spoke truth, let me know. I won't, but I'll at least listen to your preference.
And don't troll me by demanding that I use my time to provide you with proof. There's an Internet at your fingertips that's got all the proof you could possibly need.
Looking into the one guy who was handling 2% of all bitcoin ever "minted" would be a pretty good start, for that. If you want to act like someone has done something wrong, look in his direction, not mine.
