Nothing like learning first-hand about theft and virtual currency as Bloomberg TV's Matt Miller did last Friday:
...While on air, Miller surprised Bloomberg anchors Adam Johnson and Trish Regan each with $20 worth of Bitcoin.
But as Johnson received the paper gift, he briefly exposed the QR code.
This act was effectively like sharing a bank account and PIN number.I haven't seen $20 disappear that fast since the last time I took the little kids to the county fair and we walked down the midway.
Immediately, someone lifted the QR code and stole the $20...
I remember my father saying "A gullible dad and his money are soon parted."
He was obviously a fan of old proverbs that he could reshape--and I guess gullible runs in the family.
Enjoy your weekend.
