BITCOIN IS UNDER THREAT FROM HACKERS AS ITS PRICE SURGES BUT THEY CAN BE STOPPED

More and more people are looking to invest in cryptocurrencies as a result of bitcoin’s recent price surge, but by doing so they could become prime targets for cyber criminals.

Multiple cryptocurrency exchanges have been hacked in the past, resulting in the theft of thousands of bitcoin – which would be worth millions of dollars today.

What’s more, since bitcoin transactions are irreversible, if any of your holdings were to leave your wallet, you won’t simply be able to get a refund.
