    Takeaway: Cryptocurrencies can be profitable - for both investors and hackers. That's why crypto has become a prime target for digital wrongdoers out to make a quick buck.

    After the amazing rise of the bitcoin price at the end of 2017, mining and trading cryptocurrencies rapidly became one of the most important technology trends of the subsequent years.

    Today, in the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic, Bitcoin has quadrupled its value. All cryptocurrencies seem to hold much value as a hedge against the inherent weaknesses of traditional currencies and inflation risk, even more so in the general atmosphere of instability that follows the shadow cast by the virus.

    Trading Bitcoins and Ethereum may be profitable today but beware. A lot of cash started moving around cryptos, and when there's money, there are thieves trying to steal it.

    The Bitcoin network is now worth more than $1 Trillion
    Kevin Carbotte | Cryptocurrency & Mining | Fri, Feb 19 2021

    Bitcoin has been on an unprecedented run recently, with new all-time highs every few days so far in 2021. The excitement will surely wane eventually, but the rocket ship hasn't run out of gas yet on its way to the moon.
    Bitcoin is on the precipice of surpassing $55,000 per coin. At the time of writing this, the price is sitting at $54,600, after a $3000 spike overnight from just shut of $52,000. On February 6, Bitcoin topped $40,000 for the first time in history, mainly in reaction to Tesla's announcement of a $1.5 billion investment in the cryptocurrency.
    The coin's price is reaching incredible heights, but Bitcoin hit an entirely different and probably more meaningful milestone today. For the first time, the market capitalization (market cap) of Bitcoin has surpassed the $1 trillion mark. Suppose you compare that to the market cap of the biggest companies in the world. In that case, the Bitcoin network is worth more than Johnson & Johnson, Visa, Berkshire Hathaway, Tencent, Facebook and Alibaba. Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet and Petro China are the only companies in the world that compare.

    On a technical note, it's fine to compare "market cap" of apples and oranges, but the title is ultimately fairly misleading: The Bitcoin network is now worth more than $1 Trillion. if we wanted to convert every bitcoin to dolar soon, we'd get far less than $1 trillion :) Conversely, if we went nuts and decided to convert all the dollars to bitcoin, we wouldn't be able to buy up all of it. Anyway, there is approx $1.2T in circulation, so this should give everyone a good idea of what a gigantic bubble BTC is given that it's basically a purely speculative construct.

    Still, what do we do with this useful information? Hodl of course! :D

    Looks like a scam and nonsense to me. They don't have any technology, yet are promising tens of thousands of $ to new members, invite only (but you can get invited).
