Bitcoin Stares Down Impending Apocalypse (Again)

• Wired.com

That’s what a company called CEX.io discovered yesterday when it abruptly stopped accepting new machines into its consortium of bitcoin miners. The consortium — known in bitcoin circles as a pool — was running such a large portion of the worldwide computer network that oversees bitcoin, people were beginning to worry that CEX could corner the market and gain control of the digital currency. The whole idea behind bitcoin is that isn’t controlled by any one central authority.
 
Now that the CEX has pulled back on the throttle, the bitcoin world can rest a little easier.

What is really good about the idea of a Bitcoin monopoly is, the monopoly would ultimately destroy Bitcoin. This means that everyone who wants new and better things because of Bitcoin, will work to see that no monopoly ever comes about, even to the point of reducing their own control to avoid their own monopoly.
