Google : Bitcoin was the fifth most searched term in 2014

Google has revealed the 10 most searched terms in 2014 and the cryptocurrency community has reasons to celebrate. Not only Bitcoin is the fifth most searched term of the year, but the popular (and funny) Dogecoin occupies the ninth place in the same list.

Top 10 Bitcoin myths debunked

We've all heard our share of Bitcoin baloney. True, while there are some dark sides to this cryptocurrency — the enormous cost of mining bitcoins, the inability to recover lost coins, wallet vulnerabilities, to name a few — there's plenty of misinformation being spread around.

Bitstamp Reports Hot Wallet Issue...

Bitstamp Reports Hot Wallet Issue, Tells Customers to Not Deposit Bitcoin

editorial comment: probably makes sense to not 'put all your eggs in one basket' and minimize the number of BTC you keep online or in BTC exchanges

Excellent Job mattheim

Just wanted to jump in and show my support for your efforts.

The metamorphosis in currency exchange has been morphing since forever, but especially since the invention of the first charge card, then credit card, then debit, autopay, square, and so on....

Unfortunately technology is not keeping up with the criminals, which is the scariest part. The battle between the Freedom Fighters and the Moneychangers will also continue until the criminals have full control of this system too.  Silk, Mt.Gox, Bitstamp and others have changed history and challenged the system. It will get bloodier.

My sincere hope is that the enlightened (and soon to be enlightened) can stay ahead, safe and secure while preparing the next generation to battle the criminals.

Best wishes...  /b/ Bitchez!!

@ eyeswideopen

Thanks :-)

I started seriously learning about BTC just last week and figured I would share my journey with others. Fascinating concept and subculture to say the very least :-)
