Virtual currencies are slowly but surely becoming more popular, as more people start using them. One of the most popular virtual currencies is the Bitcoin (BTC), and ever since its appearance in January 2009, it has spread like wildfire and many online businesses have accepted it as a payment method.
Even though some are still weary about the Bitcoin, as it is linked to the deep web and other dark corners of the Internet (such as the black-market Silk Road) is still remains a valid currency that anyone can use online with ease. Also, bitcoins have attracted users with the possibility of “mining”. Mining bitcoins can be easily done and the prospect of getting free money has both increased its popularity and raise some eyebrows.
