Security 15 – BitCoin

We finally tackle a topic a lot of people are interested in: BitCoin. In this episode we start very simply, and describe what it is, and how it works. Very simply, it is a psuedo-anonymous  currency, where anyone can see the ledger. Use this as a primer before you do anything.
