Serious Bitcoin Question Re Bitcoin HeistSubmitted by Smaulgld.com on Wed, 12/04/2013 - 16:24
I am reading about this bitcoin heist(link below) and hearing that the thief will have trouble converting them.
Ok, but is that really problem solved? If a thief or group of thieves can steal millions of dollars of bitcoins doesn't that screw up the entire econ system's concept of just 21 million if millions of bitcoins could get stolen (or lost).
If millions of bitcoins disappear from the system doesn't that undermine it?
