Pure silver was called counterfeit by the government.

Why would you think that the government wouldn't also consider Bitcoin a counterfeit currency?

Did Bernard von NotHaus Counterfeit Coins?

A jury just found NotHaus guilty of counterfeiting U.S. coins. The coins or medallions that he had produced by a mint were pure silver, worth many times the value of any U.S. coin asserted to be that which was counterfeited. That fact alone tells me that the prosecution had NO case on the counterfeiting charge. He should not have been found guilty of counterfeiting.
