Euro banks warned off Bitcoin as Canada regulates it



Good point. But is it a case of "better the devil you know"? I can see two possibilities for new currencies:

a) Someone is trying to make money out of you (also applies to banks dealing with conventional currency etc.)

b) The virtual currency is along the lines of "free software"

And, real or virtual currency, someone might hack your account.
