What to Say to Crypto Haters - Decrypt Staff

The decrypt staff has done an opinion piece in decrypt.co

"They're back. As the crypto bear market worsens, the haters are coming out of the woodwork again to sneer at an industry they've long insisted was nothing more than an overhyped scam.

Veteran crypto users have seen this movie before. It happened in 2010, 2014, 2018, and it's happening right now: Media pundits and casual observers—many of whom know nothing about crypto—are trotting out the same tired talking points to say that they've been right all along.

At Decrypt, we report on the good, the bad, and the ugly of the crypto industry—and we're the first to admit that lately there is plenty of ugly. But we believe that crypto is fascinating and here to stay. And with the recent slew of mocking headlines celebrating the crash, it's deja vu all over again.

Happily, we’re here to help. Next time an "expert" at a dinner party starts mansplaining why crypto is nothing but a scam for suckers, point them to these retorts."

They have listed a "slew of mocking headlines" and valid rebuttals for them:

"Crypto is one big Ponzi scheme. Tokens go up only when there are enough suckers to buy more of them."

"Crypto has no intrinsic value. Unlike fiat, crypto isn’t backed by anything."

"Crypto isn't safe. People keep getting hacked."

"Bitcoin was invented in 2008 and has failed to take off."

"Crypto is for criminals"

"Blockchains aren't good for anything."

"I still can’t buy my cup of coffee with Bitcoin."

"Crypto is killing the planet"

"Web3 is clunky and too hard to use"
