Despite the hype, the news around Bitcoin hasn’t been all positive. There’s been a palpable concern that there exists a bubble in the currency, which has reached all-time-highs in value relative to the US dollar in recent months. Further, earlier this week a glitch in the software underlying the digital currency caused a massive sell-off and resulted in a temporary loss of 23 percent of its value. The error was quickly corrected, and the value has since rebounded, but the possibility of such breaches must give pause to anyone thinking about relying on the currency entirely. During the same week, news that a DNS-based attack resulted in the theft of $12,000 worth of Bitcoin from a brokerage service did little to quell these fears.
