TSA Screeners Think Bitcoins are Physical Coins

Over at tsanewsblog.com, Lisa Simeone has posted a pretty amusing story. Apparently, TSA agents in New Hampshire harassed a passenger named Davi Barker due to the fact that they came to believe he was in possession of Bitcoins. “We need to determine if you’re carrying more than $10,000 on your person,” one of the agents informed the passenger, as the TSA agents continued to rifle through his bag. The one thing that Barker’s rather convoluted interpretation of the entire event on his blog didn’t take into account is the fact that obviously, as Lisa Simeone points out, “What Barker doesn’t seem to get is that those TSA screeners have no idea what Bitcoin is. They don’t know it’s a digital construct. They were looking for actual, physical coins.”
