I could setup a network where you could view and choose to block or allow to pass any packet between any nodes, and I could *still* get bitcoin traffic past you unless you chose to degrade the entire network by dropping packets that you aren't sure are bitcoin or not.

And that's having complete and total omnipotence over the entire network. If you only have access to sniff part of the network then I wouldn't even have to try hard.

Tell me, what if I was sending or receiving bitcoins via SSH? Are you going to forbid all SSH traffic if you don't have the keys to decrypt it?

How are you going to detect the difference between my terminal sessions, my bulk file copies (scp) or my bitcoin purchases over SSH?
