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.

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!!
