In 2019, I blogged about "cryptocurrency". I had no idea at the time I would turn this into a trilogy. Nor that this trilogy would not suffice to appease the madness.
Since 2019, I have written several posts about crhypeto:
2019-06-25 - "Cryptocurrency": the pseudo-currency which no one understood or accepted, but which many bought
2019-12-15 - Bitcoin is Not Going To Zero, and more on blockchains
2021-01-03 - New Religion
2021-07-08 - Smooth summer bitcoindoctrination
2021-07-27 - Crhypeto propelling Malaysia and Argentina towards gold medals, squeezing every last bit out of Earth
2021-09-26 - What happens when an alternative currency becomes legal tender?
Not only is it still unclear whether Peak Crhypeto is over, but I've had to retract part of the above following the apparition of not-so-recent dynamics:
2022-01-02 - Happy 20th anniversary, €? Oh, and mea culpa
Thankfully, I am not alone in my crusade. Countless renowned individuals have expressed their skepticism. David Gerard's website and books go a long way. Dr Nicholas Weaver's research and lectures also depict the theme as bluntly as thoroughly. And the unfortunately defunct Buttcoin Foundation summarizes it exquisitely. Unfortunately, despite all of the misinformation now out there, there is still no central crhypeto debunking website or organization which can join everyone's efforts.
Things may be about to change though. In 2022, technologists from the USA signed the Letter in Support of Responsible Fintech Policy. Here's hoping this helps create a movement and that we soon collaborate on the development and distribution of open material debunking crhypeto. If you are aware of such a resource, thanks for letting a comment below.<HR>
