Cryptojacking[edit]

Expanding on the content of this article.[edit]

This is not really a critique of the contents of the Bitcoin article, but a suggestion for *additional* content. Namely, I would find a section going into more detail about the scams in the crypto space very informative (and entertaining) to read. Off the top off my head:

  • ICO's
  • Ponzi schemes (Like bitconnect)
  • The shady behavior of exchanges
  • ...

The bitcoin article could then be transformed into a 'cryptocurrency' article, or the subjects in the list above could be put in the 'Scam' template.— Unsigned, by: Wimdetroyer / talk / contribs

You can also indent successive talk page comments using one more colon (:) for each line. Thank you. I think it would be best to have a separate cryptocurrency article. You are right that there a lot more things that could be addressed. To be honest, I don't think Bitcoin needs its own article at all, since there's nothing that distinctly separates it from other cryptocurrencies. Feel free to draft something up in your sandbox. —Kazitor, pending 10:36, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
