The cryptocurrency movement is a temperamental thing. Born and thriving online, it has the curiously contrasting properties of being immediately available yet always somewhat detached.

We want to understand what is happening, what it’s all about, and we can access a plethora of information, anytime — but that’s where the confusion begins. Because there are as many opinions as there are voices on the internet, and they scar and scatter our confidence in this young industry.

In good times, we are seized by waves of energy and enthusiasm, and knowingly, willingly even, float with tides of hype and FOMO. Because being part of a disruptive industry, we feel we are on the right track, among early adopters, HODLing, BUIDLing, reaching out for what might be a once-in-a-lifetime chance at shaping an unseen vision of the future.

In bad times, before we even know it, we find ourselves on our own. Netizens throw their hands up in horror, haters throw told-you-so-tweets our way, media throw out headlines announcing the death of Bitcoin.

But as we throttle our naive dreams of perfect disruption and tumble into self-pity, sometimes we might just get lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these individuals that are different; the ones that seem to have missed the latest “cryptocalypse” news. They tirelessly work through every crash, they don’t grow weary of explaining themselves and their work. They stay true to their beliefs, and they seem to just know more than we do, because nothing can faze them, and nothing ever discourages them.

We meet the supporters that stick with their beliefs through any backlash, the creators that are constructing the first pillars of cutting-edge infrastructures in a society that seems far from ready, the thinkers that draw scenarios which have never been thought before. As we follow them through their everyday lives, talk with them in their favourite spots, and look over their shoulder at work, we attempt to understand a little bit more about them and their pursuits.

What gives them confidence? What kind of future do they see? What can we take away from their perspectives?

Humans of Crypto is our sneak peek at the industry beyond the hype.
