Unless some serious security measures are built into Bitcoin, we wouldn’t recommend that you invest any serious wealth with the virtual currency. Certainly, some of the other virtual currencies are better protected than others, but you still might want to think long and hard about accepting Bitcoins or other cryptocurrency as lawyers. The bulk of people we know regard bitcoins as “shady money” and they may well regard lawyers accepting Bitcoins as “shady lawyers.” Will Bitcoins be legitimized one day in the eyes of average Joes and Janes? Maybe – but not soon.
