“Bitcoin also can be seized or stolen. During World War II, the German government relied on a code called Enigma that its mathematicians insisted was impossible to break. The British famously broke it, basically by figuring out the password. That’s also how the federal government apparently recovered part of a Bitcoin ransom payment worth several million dollars from hackers who took down the Colonial Pipeline and blackmailed its owners this year.”
Bitcoin can’t be seized if secured properly.
Another crappy New York times editorial spreading lies and FUD about Bitcoin. Fiat statist media seem to be increasing the tone of FUD about Bitcoin to promote their agenda.
