Finextra: Bitcoin bug causes massive sell-off

Wow it almost looks like a real product with flaws that can be exploited to instill fear and tarnish trust. It's better to stick with the other system that has some oversight and regulations, no?

Do money wires ever go wrong, or do they just charge a big fee?

#Bitcoin #bug causes massive #sell_off

the exchange says a bug in the bitcoin software makes it possible for someone to use the network to alter transaction details to make it seem like a sending of coins to a wallet did not occur when in fact it did occur. Since the transaction appears as if it has not proceeded correctly, the bitcoins may be resent. Appears to me to be a #FatalFlaw
