  1. They are bad for the environment, as they rely on cryptocurrencies that cause huge amounts of carbon emissions. They will continue to rely on these systems for security reasons (despite claims to the contrary about moving to other systems).
  2. They are only valuable as tools for money laundering, tax evasion, and greater fool investment fraud.
