A Good Read: EBA Warning on Virtual Currencies

 

The European Banking Authority released a document on December 12, 2013, issuing a warning about virtual currencies. The document, “Warning To Consumers On Virtual Currencies”, drew many sensationalistic media headlines.

To me, this EBA release is a very important document, stating the importance of personal responsibility when endeavoring in virtual currencies like Bitcoin. This was sensible, friendly advice from the EBA and it is a good, short read for everyone involved in or considering to be involved in virtual currencies.
