We have been hearing more and more about the digital currency Bitcoin over the last few weeks, Bitcoin’s value recently went above $1,000 US dollars, and now one of the largest Bitchoin exchanges, MT. Gox has decided to add extra security to their exchange.
MT-Gox have launched a one time password card, that will add a second layer pf security to your account, once the card is linked to your account, you can then choose for the card to generate a one time password each time you login.
Account security is important to MtGox, but it’s everyone’s responsibility to maintain the best protection. Your login information needs to be secured in order to prevent malicious third-parties from accessing your account, and the basic login/password combination is never enough. You need an additional layer such as Google Authenticator, our MtGox Yubikey, or our brand new MtGox OTP (One-Time Password) Card.
Mt.Gox has now created a physical one-time password (OTP) generator that can be used across all of your devices: The Mt.Gox OTP Card, available for immediate shipping.
You can find out more details about the MT. Gox one time password card for Bitcoin, over at their website, the card will set you back $39.99.
