Practically the whole world (besides technophobes, and possibly the Amish) was an astonished and horrified audience to the event known as the Great Crypto Crash of 2022 over the last two weeks of May.

Maybe it was lines of letters which refused to make sense or numbers that twisted at every turn. Maybe it was classes that lasted for hours (except for that one favourite class which always went by in the blink of an eye).
