"According to the BBC, Silk Road 2, the infamous online market for illicit goods, was hacked through the manipulation of 'computer code' which caused a $2.7 million loss.

In a statement posted on Silk Road 2 forums, the administrator of the site, known as Defcon, said: 'We have been hacked. Nobody is in danger, no information has been leaked, and server access was never obtained by the attacker.'

Prior to the Silk Road 2's loss, MtGox and other BitCoin exchanges had already disabled withdrawals due to a currency wide vulnerability.

Do you 'collect' Bitcoins? What is the future of cryptocurrencies now that countries have started 'banning' them?"

[Ed. note] Bitteridge would suggest "None - there is no future."
