I never knew that there really was a currency that is solely internet based. I ran across this article on Wired, where hackers have been able to steal bitcoins that were stored online. I haven’t actually figured out how bitcoins work yet but in this article, they were stolen because the hackers were able to impersonate the account owners via their emails. Afterwards they reset the password and got access. The takeaway from this article: Don’t keep your online currency online. Which is kind of ironic when you think about it.
