Fusion’s Felix Salmon delves into the seedy underbelly of the Bitcoin world and comes up with the real problem with cryptocurrency: the community is 96% men.
Bitcoin, at its core, is an attempt to solve big socioeconomic problems through technology.

Which means that it’s going to continue going nowhere.
It’s hard to have a currency that leaves out 50% of the population.
