Trust No One. Verify Everything: Bitcoin
In this paper we analyze the notions of trust and dis-trust through a socio-cultural lens. Based on consumer narratives drawn from an ethnographic and netnographic study of the Bitcoin community, we analyze how consumers negotiate meanings of distrust in traditional institutions and search for trust in a seemingly trustless system.
