Definition: crypto craze


The huge public interest in cryptocurrencies starting in the late 2010s. People hear about the fortunes being made in Bitcoin and other cryptos and jump on the bandwagon without any real knowledge of what this industry is all about. In fact, no matter how much information one has, it is safe to say that nobody knows the eventual outcome. For example, pundits claim one Bitcoin is going to be worth one million dollars some day while others claim it will be worthless. The truth is likely somewhere in between.
