It seems that with every advancement in technology a new threat vector is born. This theory holds true as we begin to embrace the world of cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies have emerged as an alternative means for financial transactions, while the value of a single Bitcoin cryptocurrency rose to $20,000 in late 2017.
