Bitcoin safer than the euro?
What do government bonds and bitcoin have in common? Some investors think they're just a bit safer than the euro at the moment.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

A bitcoin exchange was hacked in June last year, resulting in around 500,000 bitcoins being stolen...

That's not how I remember it.

Nice work on getting those errors fixed and good to see that ZDnet are willing to do so quickly.
