Some really good advice - and much appreciated!
Anyone have any thoughts on Mpex and the trustworthiness of the person who runs it?

I'd like to add Trust no-pc either. I don't know how, but in the last 3 o 4 days somebody cracked my e-mail password and requested a password recovery from Deepbit, then changed the Reward Address... I've lost almost 1BTC, until I realize what happened.

Therefore, don't trust any other pc than yours, and eventually check your payments address...

Be Careful would be the best advice instead of trust no one.

Thanks for this post. I've been wondering about safety myself. I got contacted by someone that said to create a wallet on their site and thought wait if it's their site cant they easily have access to the wallet themselves? So once I start using it one day my bit coins can be transferred out of it?

I decided to go the download a wallet method so I can keep track myself.

I still don't understand how miners are created so I will be doing some more reading here.

I am running bitcoind behind two router with firewall enabled. I see some dropped TCP connection requests to port 80 and 443 to my computer. I wonder if it was caused by bitcoind somehow. I don't have these ports open. How they got behind routers?

 Grin  So if you trust noone...what wallet do you use?  I like brain wallets myself like coinbase and blockchain.info.

It's for this reason I'm questioning bitcoins' adoption to mainstream use. If technical people get caught out and scammed easily, what will happen to the everyday joe? I can't imagine explaining to my mom how to back up her wallet and taking note of the ssh keys..

How did they get your password? Brute force? Keylogger?

Very good points.

At this time, 2013/04/01, bitcoin price hit 93$/BTC. Those early time investors have already earn a significant profit from just holding them on their harddisk. Now, if we want BTC to really become a currency, we need to use it for tranactions, buying and selling products/services in BTCs. That need us to believe something, somebody, some agency, some company.

Not an easy task, but I think there will be some companies emerging from the ground. Those who care the business reputation, mind the long term interestes, not the short term tricky, will be a next milestone in BTC society. I BELIEVE there will be someome.
