$500,000 worth of BitCoin stolen

Posted June 16th, 2011 by sharalynn

Users and fans of the open-source, digital currency Bitcoin should feel a little less secure today, after leaders of the Bitcoin project confirmed to a British newspaper they have no way to confirm a user's claim that almost $500,000 worth of the digital currency disappeared from his hard drive overnight.

...and this answers my thoughts on the subject.

Who is making all the money from real currencies going into bitcoins. LOL
"Cohen goes so far as to call Bitcoin a scam, designed to enrich the few who bought the currency in huge quantities when it each one traded for a dollar or less. Indeed, most of the eloquent defenses of Bitcoin found in blog comments seem to mention that the author bought into the currency early and has made -- or stands to make -- handsome sums exchanging the virtual currency for a real one."
