When the Bitcoin developer released Bitcoins many people said that it is big scam. There were many accusations made against the digital currency. In its early stage Bitcoin was frequently attacked by Governments and for example China banned banks to trade Bitcoin in 2012-2013.

The base for these claims were of non physical existence of the currency. Imagine paying $100 for something that you can't see or touch. People accused Satoshi Nakamato for stealing their fiat money for something that is non existence. However Nakamato kept on mining his Bitcoins.

The accusations against Bitcoin paced in 2012 when it formed a huge bubble rushing to $1200 but came crashing back again at $200 due the famous Mt.Gox exchange crash. At that moment Bitcoin made headlines as the most risky investment and many other types of accusations. During those years Bitcoin was only thought to be used for illegal activities and in darkweb. People used to stay away from Bitcoin due to its used in Ponzi schemes.
