News Online understands that Bitcoin has been flirting with the $30,000 mark for weeks, and finally passed that record-setting level Saturday. The virtual currency is now valued at above $33,000, an all-time high.

Decentralization has made cryptocurrency a favorite for scammers, even as it appeals to technologists and investors alike.
