The Cyber Threat Looming Over Virtual Currencies
Virtual currencies are not only here to stay but are becoming an ever-increasing part of the U.S. financial system. The still-growing number of cryptocurrencies have an aggregate global market capitalization of over $2 trillion. Bitcoin, the oldest and most well known, currently has a global value of over $1.1 trillion alone. But as digital currencies expand, so too does the risk that they will be targeted by hostile nations and cyber criminals.
