A shocker that totally isn't a shocker: Bitcoin has taken another hit.

Silk Road 2.0, the site that popped up shortly after the original Silk Road was shut down by the Feds, was hit by a hacker who was able to steal 4474.266 Bitcoins from the site. In dollar amounts, that means the hacker was able to run off with $2.7 million. An administrator named Defcon came out and confirmed the attack. "I am sweating as I write this," he said. "I have failed you as a leader, and am completely devastated by today's discoveries."

Defcon detailed the attack on the website Deep Dot Web

Silk Road 2.0 is expected to be down for a few days while security improvement are made. Hey, we still have Dogecoin. Sorta.
