Current Groupthink of the Crypto Faithful | Bloomberg Crypto
Financial markets can be subject to a fair amount of groupthink. The herd effect. Mob mentality, even. There’s actually some really interesting research into this: check out for example the paper, “Bubbles, Human Judgment, and Expert Opinion (https://www.jstor.org/stable/4480389)” by Robert J. Shiller. Here’s additional research into herd effect:(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7452385/)
Crypto investors are no exception: and their in-group behavior also features a lot of catchphrases. Like the famous “GM”, and the infamous “have fun staying poor.” Or the tongue-in-check “Bitcoin will fix this”, where “this” is basically any social or economic issue you can imagine.
In this episode Bloomberg senior markets editor Mike Regan and crypto blogger Emily Nicolle assess the mood among the crypto faithful – and explain why some of them are now evangelizing cold wallets.

Crypto is the world’s hottest financial trend. Digital tokens like Bitcoin and NFTs have moved from niche products to showing up in Super Bowl commercials and song lyrics. Advocates of these new asset classes promise they will democratize the finance industry, and they hail the blockchain technology that backs it all as the future of computing. Skeptics say it’s another financial house of cards. No newsroom on the planet is better equipped than Bloomberg to cut through all the noise and provide clarity, context and authority.
In this new daily podcast, Bloomberg’s reporting team will tease out what’s actually important in the crypto conversation. Led by crypto expert Stacy-Marie Ishmael, the podcast will draw on reporters in every region and credible voices in the industry to cover everything from regulation to alt coins to DeFi, and even the environmental impact of the currency that promises to change the finance landscape indefinitely.
