Finding The Bitcoin Signal Through The Noise

I was struck with a bit of inspiration today when Nathaniel Whittemore discovered some New York Times hit pieces targeted at Bitcoin in a recent episode of his podcast, “The Breakdown.” The first article attempted to challenge Bitcoin’s decentralization using mining statistics from the early days when very few people were mining. A second article by Paul Krugman attempted to denigrate Bitcoin by saying it was essentially useless. This comes from a Nobel Prize-winning economist who is infamous for an Internet article as a passing fad. Why do we trust these people, let alone what they think?
