    Yet another Bit Coin hack.
    I do have to admit though it keeps moving closer and closer to being a legit currency.

    More places accepting it as a currency.
    IE
    TigerDirect
    Overstock
    Dish Network
    and
    I do believe E-bay is working on accepting it.

    E-bay to me would be a good threshold as you could then buy a wide range of goods directly with it.

    Wondering how many times it has to be hacked to become a legit currency ...

    So perhaps that people are putting forth the effort to hack Bitcoin is evidence of its worth?
    Having real worth is evidence of its legitimacy?
    BTW those are actual questions not sarcasm.

    My response was only partially tongue in cheek. Hacking something like Dogecoins ... in the time it would take a hacker to develop and implement their plan, they'd be financially in the hole compared to how much value they could steal.

    That Bitcoin is worth stealing (repeatedly) shows there is value to it, and that people continue to invest in it.
