the appropriation of scientific or technical vocabulary exemplifies the way ufo cults and post-new age grifters simultaneously view science as their enemy and seek to take on its mantle of respectability. it's about supplanting the scientific worldview, in sort of a weird reflection of the way new theories are supposed to supersede old ones in natural science

Total clown shoes operation!
The truth is all these hardware wallets are complete black boxes. You don't know how they work. You don't know that everything's on the up and up. You don't know what backdoors do or don't exist.
With a paper wallet, you know these things.
Now, am I thrilled that I got back that money and didn't need to go out of pocket on the loss? Sure!
But I don't want a random tech in who knows where to be able to flip a switch and kill or recover my crypto. It's absolutely unacceptable!

A couple of tries later, they "did something," and all my crypto showed back up in my balance statements (my guess is this was something derivation-path related).
