I see this as a good thing. I will suggest that everyone who ever uses the Internet should be familiar with the reasons for using cryptography. Cryptography may sound complicated, but actually using these systems is easier than ever.
Cryptography used to be the exclusive concern of techies, geeks, and the CIA. Today, however, it seems that everybody wants to be a crypto-expert. And the recent surge in BitCoin and other crypto-coins has further accelerated people’s interest in cryptography.
Encrypting messages and data is one of the easiest ways of improving the security of both, guarding against theft and exploitation. Given this, and how easy it is to encrypt information nowadays, it’s really worth taking it seriously.
