Expert warns outsized male interest in cryptocurrencies a ‘red flag’

The content that I create gets a lot of attention, but the analysis piece (about what the gender divide in the crypto community may signal) that I wrote for CBC takes the cake (with the high school student betting on ethereum a close second and the immigration explainer video coming in third). Some people applauded this fresh take, and rejoiced that credible people were talking about the giant pink elephant in the room.Bitcoin boys club

Others trolled me online for weeks. Accusing me of all kinds of things that I won’t repeat. Some had valid arguments. Others were simply outraged and spewing hateful rubbish at me. The reaction came from across Canada as well as specific U.S. states (Texas, Florida, New York and California).

I invite you to read it, all of it (from start to finish because there’s a twist at the very end) and do some research, and come to your own conclusions (feel free to comment below or reach out to me respectfully on social media). Analysis pieces are meant to spark discussion about topics that might otherwise get glossed over. I believe that there is a process to figuring things out, and an important part of the process must be a willingness to listen.
