Let’s ignore the math for one moment, which is what prevents such attacks from being possible.
Let’s assume that such exploits are not only possible, but they actually exist.
What would the price for such a thing be?
I can imagine it having 2 prices: A billion dollars, and 0 dollars.
Why a billion dollars? Well you’ve effectively got one better than a money making machine (which is what mining rigs are): A money stealing machine that steals money from all the money making machines. If that were true, a billion dollars would be cheap.
Why 0 dollars? Well let’s assume this exploit worked, and your coins could be stolen/intercepted/hacked. What would a Bitcoin be worth if it could be stolen? About 0 dollars I imagine.
So, do you REALLY think someone’s going to give you this for the cost of filling out an online survey? Really? Because if you do, I’ve got some ebooks for sale that you’re going to LOVE and at a really affordable price too!
Yes, somethimes my mind gets really deep frozen and thoughts slumber around… Things looked to real, but yeah those game patches/cracks are also distributed this way but i never tried it …
I was thinking maybe some people trying to destroy cryptoCurrency…
