Well-Deserved Recognition

This is just a quick shout-out to Molly White, who has emerged as one of the most effective communicators among the cryptocurrency skeptics, not just with the outstanding Web3 is Going Just Great, but also with a blog that provides a distinctive and valuable perspective, a newsletter, talks and excellent contributions to panels for the White House and Financial Stability Oversight Council.

She has received well-deserved recognition in this year's Forbes 30-under-30 list and with a must-read profile by Jeff Wilser entitled Molly White and the Crypto Skeptics as one of CoinDesk's Most Influential 2022. It ends:
We’ve been hearing, for years, that “crypto is the future.” That might still be true. But ultimately, says White, we need to “temper these really optimistic visions of the future with how the technology is functioning today.”
As someone who has been writing extremely skeptically about the technology for a long time I believe it is her ability to couch well-informed skepticism in such a reasonable frame that makes her so effective. I, and other critics, have a lesson to learn here.

If you learn a lesson from her she won't be special anymore. :)
