Oh wonderful, civilian uprisings are coups now.
Yes they are. Perhaps you need to learn the definition of coup, a military coup is only one type, what has happened in Ukraine fits the definition of a coup to a T.
The President currently makes $400,000 a year (a helluva lot less than the CEO of many major US corporations).
You forgot to mention the Zero expenses he occurs or the lifetime pension from the moment he is no longer president, he also gets funding to "help" move back into private life (must be a terrible burden for him), then he gets funding for staff as well as travel and medical expenses for himself and family for life. basically after he is no longer doing the job he is still earning more than half a million a year for his stint as president.
That is really the point here - if you destroy a currency the currency is worthless, so why steal it unless you don't care about the value?
Who wouldn't care about the value? Governments. Who also have a vested interest in seeing BT go away.
Who wouldn't care about the value? how about anyone of 5 or 6 billion people that have no vested interest in the currency. Even if the value of bitcoin reduced to 1% of current value that is still all profit to someone with no bitcoin investment, and whether it is $6k or$600k they stole it is still free money for them taken from a system with no regulation and with little chance of them being caught. seems like bitcoin exchanges are excellent targets, what does it matter if it erodes the value of bitcoins?
