Bitcoin! The new ultimate target for hackers. Why rob a bank when one can hack one. Why hack a bank when Bitcoin is a much better target! After all.....it's not REAL money....it's virtual money with virtual penalties from a virtual government for lifting it!
Shannon, I disagree. Electronic currency is nothing new, and hacking has been around for as long as computers have. Bitcoin presents no additional opportunity to rob people. If caught, the penalties will not be virtual - they would be quite real, much like the theft of any intellectual property. Bitcoin is more of an opportunity for honest transactions between people that can be verified algorithmically without the need for an intermediary (such as a bank). Reducing the participants of a transaction from 3 to 2 plays reduces cost substantially - a cost reduction that could be passed onto the consumer.
