I just think at this point it's morally bankrupt. Sorry.

Corruption = abuse of power by an authority that has been granted this power by the people it represents.   An authority that acts in its own best interest rather than in the interest of the people it represents.

In the bitcoin community there is no authority.  There is no representation. There are no "social contracts", implicit or explicit. Nobody is in charge.

So by definition, there is no corruption.

Sure, the distribution of power is not equal among community members, and some powerful members may be acting in their own best interest rather than in the interest of the community at large. But that isn't corruption.

And there certainly is equal opportunity for power.

Trolling and FUD within Bitcoin community

Discuss.

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

5+!

Here is the answer:

Bitcoin is part of a meme shift of unparalleled proportions. ...
This is not a battle to be won, the battle was over the minute that a new meme escaped the realm of human thinking.

There is plenty of scope for corruption on bitcoin related sites, say bitcoin currency exchanges... market manipulation is corruption.
