The crypto movement is as wide open to criticism as any movement that promises the world with not much to show for it. The spirited defense from McAfee et al notwithstanding, the crypto-futurist movement has had virtually zero impact on 99% of the population. Yet several people have made a lot of money, often on the backs of those more ethical exponents of crypto's potential. The movement has the trappings of the dot-com bubble, but with the added seediness of crypto's sheer criminality.
