The Guardian reported on Nov. 22 that as Crypto becomes more widely used in the cryptocurrency industry, users searching for "crypto" on Google will see a lot of popular search results for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether, but according to Webster's dictionary definition of "crypto" is defined by Webster's Dictionary as cryptography, which is defined as "the computer encoding and decoding of information. "This shift in vocabulary has placed a heavy burden on cryptographers," the report said, adding that many cryptographers have been repeating the "crypto is cryptography" mantra on social media for the past few years with little success. Cryptographer Matt Blaze said, "I think calling cryptocurrencies 'crypto' is a bad choice, and it has negative consequences for both cryptography and cryptocurrencies."
