Anyone using Bitcoin?
I know several people who do and accept it as payment for services rendered. I personally know very little about it though.
I don't remember the title, but I read a novel a while back.
In the story this was the way that hackers were getting paid for selling top secret information, hacks and passwords.
They were able to be paid and receive money anonymously anywhere in the world.
i work in the education and medical research IT field, and have an interest in this kinda thing. i'd stay away, Dave.
I prefer beads and mirrors for payment.
I like the idea and I do want it to succeed. Although, given the resistance it has and will have from govt, banks etc, it's gonna be hard.
At some point it was quite popular, then one generator(the guy who ran coin gen) got hacked, people panicked, even though it was clearly his neglect...
These days I dunno, but there's quite a few people contributing to it unknowingly Warez can easily install bit coin generator instead of a virus. So, your comp silently generates cents or dollars for "someone"...
I like the idea that I can funnel money to my buddies in the Sinaloa cartel without the big bro knowing about it!
