The promise of cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technology in general, is decentralization. Proponents say that if power is spread out to many different people and groups, then no single entity can impose its agenda on the whole network. In practice, however, cryptocurrency communities rely on many centralized tools.
For example, much of the discussion within cryptocurrency communities takes place on Twitter and Reddit. Using popular services like these is good for accessibility, but occasionally relying on an mainstream entity backfires on the cryptocurrency proponents.
