I had a look at online currencies and these are some of the good things I have gained from doing this.

An understanding of password security, how to improve it and ways to keep password vaults and improve online security.

An awareness of how insecure not following any banking principles really is. Don’t assume the bank will cover you for loss if you gave your friend your PIN to take out cash from the shop on your behalf.

I haven’t made gains as the market is volatile. I did lose something from investing in an investor website which I should have checked more thoroughly.

I find it easier to spot a scam or fraud having followed groups online about this topic.

Fraud to do with Bitcoin could range from Passport Theft, theft of money in accounts or through requests to give a bogus investor own money through social networks.
