Find the Bitcoin signal through noise

I was a little surprised today when Nathaniel Whittemore covered some of the best-selling excerpts from the New York Times targeting bitcoins in a recent episode of his podcast, “The Breakdown.” The first article attempted to challenge the decentralization of Bitcoin using mining statistics from the early days, when very few people were exploiting it. A second article by Paul Krugman attempted to denigrate Bitcoin by saying that it was essentially useless. This comes from a Nobel Prize-winning economist who is famous for an article on the Internet as a passing fad. Why do we trust these people, let alone what they think?
