What I’m Doing To Help Promote Mass Adoption Of CryptocurrencyFebruary 1, 2019
There are so many new people getting into the cryptocurrency space each day that it’s important not to assume that everyone knows what mass adoption is. There was a time several years ago when I had no clue what that term meant. A friend had to explain it to me. So, don’t feel embarrassed if you’re new here and don’t know what it means. I applaud those people who want to learn as much as they can on cryptocurrency and blockchain.
The biggest problem faced by all cryptocurrencies is mass adoption. The growth in the past several years has been off the charts. Although this growth has been impressive, we still have yet to see widespread worldwide adoption of cryptocurrency as a means of payment. Granted, this is going to take years to accomplish. We are a long ways away from your grocery store accepting bitcoin to pay for your groceries. However, there are merchants all over the world that do take bitcoin or litecoin as a form of payment.
So, let’s go back to my original question. That is, what am I doing to help promote mass adoption of cryptocurrency.
First, I try to start several “crypto conversations” several times a day. This applies to family members and well as people I meet throughout my day. For example, if I’m standing in line at the grocery store, I might ask the person in front of me a simple question like, “Have you ever heard about bitcoin?” or “I’m learning about cryptocurrency, are you familiar with that term?”
What I just described might seem odd to you but I honestly do it all the time. This scenario is repeated again and again in all the stores or restaurants I visit. I really enjoy doing it.
My second way I’m helping to promote mass adoption is through my YouTube channel. I do daily videos on crypto news, interviews, or give me opinions on certain issues pertaining to cryptocurrency.
My third strategy to promote mass adoption was to take three cryptocurrency road trips in 2018. I drove around the United States talking to people about cryptocurrency and asking them a lot of questions. I would drive from city to city, stopping at colleges and universities and strike up conversations with people. At the end of each evening when I checked into my hotel room, I would upload pictures and interview from that day on Twitter and YouTube. My crypto road trips were so fun. I met so many wonderful people. These people who were once strangers are now my friends.
You might be saying to yourself, “I could never do the things you are doing.” My answer to you is simple. You don’t have to do everything I’ve chosen to do. You might not start a YouTube channel or take a road trip. But I’m guessing there are people in your life you can start crypto conversations with. Start with your spouse, friend or boss. I think you’ll be surprised at how quickly people will join your conversations!
