@hex@ehashman "Crypto" referred to "cryptography" for a long time before referring to "crypto[graphy-based ]currency" as a specific application, so people who still use it in that form might want to explain clearly that this is their usage of the term, for one thing
@cwebber@ehashman Gotcha. I didn't realize this was disambiguating cryptocurrency from cryptography. There are still other areas where crypto (as a prefix) is used but has anything to do with cryptography. Cryptozoology comes to mind.
