Confirmation bias is a tactic we use to verify things we think we already know, whether or not the facts line up. Like when one reads a headline saying “blockchain is bad for the environment” and accepts that as truth rather than doing research to find out if it’s true (it’s not—it’s nuanced).
Like when one says crypto is just another place for privileged white dudes to make money, rather than a thriving community-driven industry composed of people from all backgrounds, from all over the world.
Like when people see crypto as a bunch of risky assets, rather than tools with which to build a more just world (smart contracts, DAOs, and de-fi, we’re talking about you!).
