The courts disagree to an extent and, absent other evidence, a jury would probably acquit if the sole objectionable content was something in a block chain. However, a counter argument is that IF you voluntarily downloaded content, you are obligated to know, and are liable for, what that content is.

What I wonder is, say you download an e-currency. You do your due diligence and discover objectionable content, what then is your recourse?
