In reply to comment: 30 billion to compromise Bitcoin (see in situ)

Trace made a small mistake with that statement

1) it can't be compromised in the sense that the rules that govern Bitcoin would change or that someone could take your money.. all $30billion dollars would get you is to seriously disrupt the currently smooth flow of transactions because you could block some or add in fake ones which, yes, is a problem but wouldn't be the end of Bitcoin

2) even though every transactions is public, there are ways how you can hide who made those transactions.. It's kind of like sending an email from a random email you just created and no one knows it belongs to you.. To achieve this in Bitcoin is not easy and you need to know your stuff..
