This can happen because Bitcoin is mined and traded in computer. In the world, there are many smart crypto thieves. And bitcoin can be made profits for them, easily understanding, they will take advantages of this phenomenon. Above all, the investors should be the most careful as much as possible to protect their asset.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

As I have seen from a website about China's nabbing crypto thieves.  So, being a computer genius has a lot of advantages to get rich so easily with cryptocurrencies if they will not be caught.  Unlike us who makes clean living by trading, mining, investing and bounty hunting, they tend to get easy income in their professional thieves way.  Might be this is the reason why bitcoin's value is going down.  Just my thoughts..

If there are computer viruses that can steal that will be a huge problem for many people and specially for good people because the losses that can be done by hackers are immense and I know from my personal experience because too have faced a cruel hacker and lost my entire wallet full of currencies just in seconds but I don't think it was through a computer virus but though a currency exchange but if the above is true the damage can be much higher

I think, many people develop a virus like this. Well, I think last year, things like this also existed. well, but for now I think there is an antivirus that can detect it. therefore, we must always update the antivirus that we have on the computer we use.

Ambition of many criminals are to hack an exchange or a wallet of some one to steal crypto because it has become the safest and easiest way to score huge amount of money in a short period of time so many innocent individuals are getting caught and building a computer virus to steal information illegally was very famous few years ago but if criminals starts to use crypto's in the same way majority of people will suffer

Unfortunateley, there are sme types of viruses written to steal crypto. Actualy, in most cases they steal data that enable log in to your wallets or other places you keep your coins and that enables perpetrator to steel your crypto.
That is why is very important to keep your antivurus tool updated and be very careful how secure is your access to wallets, exchanges and similar.

Money is the root of all evil, as what people say. So others do whatever it takes to earn, and some also just want an easy money. This is the problem now.

Yes ... unfortunately where there are big money ... there are people who want to steal. However it seems to me that such viruses, which just brew money a little (relatively). In recent years, it has become more and more miners' viruses, which quietly begin to use the resources of your computer in order to make a person for another computer earn a little money.

for trivial matters like that does not make prices go down, the price drops is common in Bitcoin. The market price dropped was the traders' turmoil, when it came down wealthy investors even liked to buy with a lot of bitcoin, while when they went up investors also laughed out loud because they made 100-500% profit, and so on and so on and so on

Bitcoin is very safe the fact that it has been years since it was first introduced and no one has ever penetrate the system. The only main problem in security in Bitcoin is the negligence of the users and didn't even do their own diligence to secure their wallet.

These are terrible times and when going though your information we should understand we should not just spend time to invest and trade in cryptocurrencies but should definitely spend some quality time to learn how to protect our earned cryptocurrencies because most of the people came to the crypto world without having any asset so majority has to buy currencies using there hard earned money but if criminals can steal those assets in moments like you have mentioned everyone who is hones is in trouble so best thing to do is take every step before loose anything because once some one has lost something in the crypto world there will be no police officers to catch the bad guy and return the goods

This scam is not the reason the price of bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies are going down at the moment. It is unfortunate that some computer genius resolve to stealing other people's cryptocurrency rather than follow the path of the honest and deploy their expertise to what will benefit others. This is now a major problem.

Yes in some cases. They use computer virus to steal cryptos. If you dont have a legit anti virus on your computer you might the number victim of hackers in crypto. It is very important that you have anti virus because might click links unintentionally then thats the time your anti virus will do he's job. Spend some pennies on anti virus.
Hackers are geniuses who have advantages over others in the computer field. However, some of them are thieves, always looking for loopholes to be able to steal data, transactions, bitcoin, and even interfere with other people's information. So, the security of our computers is our own responsibility and always updates the anti-virus at all times so that our computers are always protected.

The network itself is safe but the accessibility is the one that would be the target of the hackers so that they can steal the cryptocurrencies. They would take advantage of those newbies who would easily believe what they are saying so that they can get free coins or perhaps free services.

Always be careful when someone asks you to download something to have free coins because most likely it has a virus that would have access to your gadgets and then take away your hard earned coins. Always be careful and do not attract the attention of the people by posting how much coins you have in social media and forums.

I think it is still very difficult to do for now, but for the next few years it may happen that more and more people are interested in btc or cryptocurrency, the more people try to make a profit by shortcut, so if malware can stealing cryptocurrency or btc will be very difficult, but if you steal our data it is very possible especially if you put your privacy key and password on the computer that has been exposed to the malware it will be very easy for them to hack
