State and federal regulators have launched investigations into virtual currencies like Bitcoin in an attempt to curb any consumer threats and abuses from the decentralized digital currency .


The Senate’s Committee for Homeland Security sent a letter to Secretary Janet Napolitano on Monday urging a probe into the oversight of the flourishing digital-based currency market.
