+ - Congressional Report Warns of Potential Bitcoin Threat to US Dollar

Submitted by fredan
fredan (54788) writes "If I understand the comments from the previously Bitcoin story that you really love these, here's another one for you:

'A Congressional report quietly released last month suggests that bitcoin could be a threat to US monetary policy, and makes the case for continued central banking control.

The report, Bitcoin: Questions, Answers, and Analysis of Legal Issues, was published by the Congressional Research Service, which produces research reports for US policy makers. It argues for the benefits of a single, incumbent currency (the US dollar), for stability.'

Now in a true slashdot spirit there will not be an link directly to the report, instead I will provide a link to a link to the link of the report:"

they did get the MD5 hashes from Disqus, from their api.

to know which e-mail address it belongs to, did generate MD5 hashes of all their e-mail addresses that they have in their (e-mail) system.

now they know which hash belongs to which e-mail address and can then continues the search for who his/she is what that specific MD5 hash.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
