The currency has suffered several hacks, a few of which have exposed information about bitcoin wallets to hackers, and the price has continued to fall.

There have been multiple hacks of bitcoin wallets.
Some bitcoin wallets have been compromised, and it’s unclear who the culprits are.
Another hack was announced in early October, but it was soon revealed that the hackers were the Chinese government, not hackers.
Bitcoin has seen the price drop nearly 50% from its peak in July.
That means a significant portion of its value has been lost.

Bitcoin has been trading around $1,200 a coin.
In recent weeks, a new group of companies have announced their intentions to create bitcoin alternatives.
Coinbase, a digital wallet provider, has announced plans to make bitcoin-based payment cards available to consumers, as well as bitcoin-only payment cards for retailers.
The new bitcoin cards will be called Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold, respectively.
Coinbase is one of many bitcoin alternatives being developed by companies that want to offer bitcoin alternatives to the current centralized payment system.
Other companies like BitPay and Coinbase are also developing their own bitcoin alternatives, though none of these products have yet gained traction.
The biggest challenge bitcoin faces right now is the rise of more and more bitcoin-focused exchanges.
Some of the major exchanges are offering bitcoin-like payment services and services for other cryptocurrencies, but many of these companies have struggled to keep up with the demand for bitcoin.
The latest bitcoin-related news is from CNBC’s Jim Cramer.
The value of bitcoin has also risen in recent weeks.
The cryptocurrency hit an all-time high in July of $2,077, but has since fallen back to a low of $1 at the beginning of September.
The value of bitcoins has dropped more than 50% in the past month.
