Mallers: Bitcoin Skeptics Think It’s Too Risky Mallers believes the reluctance to embrace bitcoin is tied to the negative public perception of crypto more so than technical obstacles. “There’s a serious mental barrier that needs to be broken down as far as people’s relationship with bitcoin and the asset itself,” Mallers said, as

The flood of fud-trolls continues unabated on r/bitcoin. There is a serious effort by many dedicated trolls to keep posting fud in every single thread. I notice right away because I have them tagged. This can’t be just ‘casual’, somebody is paying good money for that.

My guess: The financial whales that are making hundreds of times the money they pay for that, by pushing the price down and shaking the weak masses out of their coins.
