White’s dryly funny, almost clinical write-ups of crypto crises make it accessible even to open-minded skeptics like myself.

Molly White [is] a remarkable young woman who is the sanest critic of the crypto frenzy. By day, she’s a software developer and a dedicated editor of Wikipedia… In her spare time, she’s become the sharpest critic of crypto boosterism on the web.

– John Naughton, The Guardian

Years spent online researching esoteric Internet cultures have made White a rare figure who can maneuver the technically complex, meme-filled world of crypto, translating it into digestible prose.
