Cryptocurrency’s recent extraordinary run from US$1 trillion in value to US$3 trillion has attracted lots of new investors, drawn by the potential for huge profits and a culture defined by risk-taking.

Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman, Ledger CEO Pascal Gauthier and Draper Associates founder Tim Draper have long supported decentralised tender.
