Morpheus on Bad BusinessByan Laurel and Melissa Epstein from Bad Business, set out to get the inside information about the most important development in currency known as Bitcoin. While at the Home and Garden show, Bryan connects with Morpheus Titania, who is running a Bitcoin Booth there and gets invited to be interviewed on the show.

Because bitcoin is built on an encryption algorithm known as SHA-256, it is impossible to have a fraudulent transaction or be stolen.
