Alexandra Erin on Twitter: "So somebody in the cryptocurrency community set up a gag "investment opportunity" called PonziCoin that painstakingly explained what it was and why buying into it was a bad idea, and then had to close it down when people bought it anyway?

YOUR SLOPPY BITCOIN DRUG DEALS WILL HAUNT YOU FOR YEARS

Quote:
Researchers at Qatar University and the country's Hamad Bin Khalifa University earlier this week published findings that show just how easy it may be to dredge up evidence of years-old bitcoin transactions when spenders didn't carefully launder their payments. In well over 100 cases, they could connect someone's bitcoin payment on a dark web site to that person's public account. In more than 20 instances, they say, they could easily link those public accounts to transactions specifically on the Silk Road, finding even some purchasers' specific names and locations.

Bitcoin's ups and downs.

Over much of 2013, Bitcoin traded for around $100/unit. Then in late November, it rose to around $1000. It then declined to around $230 by late January 2015. By the end of that year, it climbed to $400, and by the end of 2016, it climbed to $900. It then climbed up to $19,000 on December 15 of last year, and it's now at $11,000.

Just like the stock market.

Bitcoin now has numerous imitators, and many of them are modifications of Bitcoin itself. One that isn't a modification is Ethereum, and it has the feature that one can run Turing-complete programs in it: "smart contracts". One can also do that in Bitcoin, but that facility is much more limited -- and little-known. An interesting application of Ethereum smart contracts is to run a token system inside of Ethereum -- a currency inside a currency. A large number of such currencies has now been written.
