How did Bitcoin make right wing conspiracy? theories are mainstram
The actual connection between the far right and Bitcoin [has], if anything, become clearer and strengthened since I started writing.
When Bitcoin started to get big, I started to notice that the old conspiracy theories that I recognized from Wall Street were starting to show up with alarming regularity in the discussions around Bitcoin.
What are some examples of the conspiracy theories that are embedded in the discourse around Bitcoin and cryptocurrency?
This isn’t quite a conspiracy theory so much as a really interesting part of extreme right-wing economic thought that kind of blew over into conspiracy theories.
I mentioned some pretty well-known conspiracy theories, but I started to wonder if when people use the word like “middle man” that isn’t at some level a kind of conspiracy theory — I mean, in the context of Bitcoin.
