But they said, completely anonymous dammit.
Is so, he may have gotten his jimmies rustled.
California’s Department of Financial Institutions decided to issue a cease and desist warning to conference organizer Bitcoin Foundation for allegedly engaging in the business of money transmission without a license or proper authorization.
If found to be in violation of California Financial Code, penalties can be severe ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 per violation per day plus criminal prosecution which could result in fines and/or imprisonment. Additionally, it is a felony violation of federal law to engage in the business of money transmission without the appropriate state license or failure to register with the U.S. Treasury Department. Convictions under the federal statute are punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
The Bitcoin Foundation is a nonprofit corporation registered in Washington, D.C. with mailing address in Seattle, WA. As a nonprofit, its mission is to standardize and promote the open source Bitcoin protocol and it receives generous support from individuals and corporations to advance those objectives. The foundation also boasts significant international membership.
One activity that the foundation does not engage in is the owning, controlling, or conducting of money transmission business. Furthermore, that activity would also be against the original charter of the foundation.

If a person or business had the motivation and know-how then yes, they could stay anonymous.
Doesn't look like he ever said bitcoins are intrinsically anonymous
From the second thread I ever started about bitcoin back in October of 2012, I have been referring to it as "mostly anonymous" or "pseudonymous." Please forgive me for the first thread I started on it where I said it was anonymous.
Since Wiki won't respond to Russian
Have you written numerous times within the last 6 months that a bitcoin user can remain anonymous if he uses bitcoins?
Yes or no?
