A bitcoin ATM is pictured in a commercial area of Barcelona on February 26, 2014. Japanese authorities were today probing the troubled MtGox bitcoin exchange after claims of a multi-million dollar theft from its digital vaults, as US prosecutors reportedly served a subpoena on the company. Bitcoin is a virtual currency that is created from computer code. Unlike a real-world currency like the US dollar or the euro, it has no central bank and is not backed by any government.
