nukem777's insight:

Jump right on in the water -- it's only full of sharks!

"As we see, threat actors will grasp any opportunity to make illegal money, and the methods to make money online are continuously evolving. The development of the cryptocurrency market has led to an explosive growth in cases where miners are installed without users’ knowledge or consent. This can be explained by the fact that when a new cryptocurrency is emerging, it is much easier to mine and make money from it. Threat actors are on the lookout for ways to use the resources of somebody else’s hardware, and often it is regular users who fall victim."

Dimon calls bitcoin ‘a fraud’ and may have delivered the biggest blow to the digital currency

Dimon calls bitcoin ‘a fraud’ and may have delivered the biggest blow to the digital currency | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. boss Jamie Dimon just leveled one of the harshest criticisms about bitcoin and the broader digital-currency sector to date.

Via THE *OFFICIAL ANDREASCY*
nukem777's insight:

"

Speaking at a banking industry conference organized by Barclays BCS, +3.16%Dimon compared the rapid ascent of bitcoin with the 17th century mania over tulip bulbs—viewed as a classic, textbook bubble—and predicted that things may end just as badly for investors in the decentralized currency, which has been surging over the past year.

“Bitcoin will eventually blow up. It’s a fraud. It’s worse than tulip bulbs and won’t end well,” Dimon said.

Dimon also said he would fire any trader trading bitcoin for being “stupid.”

Speaking at CNBC’s Delivering Alpha conference late Tuesday afternoon, Dimon reiterated that “bitcoin is not a real thing and it’s solely speculative and that there’s no need for it in the US.”"
