Recently, an article was published in a newspaper, showing a 'tungsten adulteration' attack that could be achieved using GoldCoin.
Yeah.. it's cheap and easy to tell your bitcoin is bitcoin, but not so easy to be sure that your gold is gold!
It seems so many journalists are desperate to put on record their prediction of bitcoin's demise.
Out of fear of 'egg on their face' - they're fearful to be seen to be optimistic about a potentially gamechanging technology.
Sad that journalists seem to put their own egos ahead of unbiased reporting.
They should mention pitfalls and concerns - sure... but many go beyond that into naysaying and negative spin.
