"If you own bitcoin or are just beginning to learn about it, these are interesting times indeed. You might have heard detractors of the digital currency proclaim that it has no intrinsic value, but as Mark Rees points out bitcoin “transcends nations, politics, religions, cultures and regulations”. This quality, in of itself, affords bitcoin tremendous value and we are beginning to see why".

The title should be: Three Reasons Why You Should Get Every People You Know to Use Bitcoins. Well, I once tried to tell that to my girlfriend, and I ended up carrying her to our bed because she fell asleep because of the terminologies and explanations I told her. However at first she was interested of the decentralized idea, but somehow got bored of different aspects, especially the security-related aspects of the coin.

You need to tell her what things she can buy with bitcoin to get her interest, my girlfriend has actually found a little interest after about 1 year of me trying to get her involved.  She checks her mobile wallet all the time to see if her bitcoin has gone up in value lol.  Best thing to do is give them bitcoin.

I was telling her the things she could possibly buy online if she has bitcoins. I told her that online shopping would be much easier with bitcoins but she didn't want to believe me.  Angry I offered to give her some bitcoins but she insisted that she wouldn't use it nor spend it because she doesn't know how and wouldn't bother to know how. I have a hard-headed girlfriend btw.

My girlfriend is actually interested in Bitcoin, although she doesn't believe it will always be decentralized, neither does she think that things are decentralized as of now. She says that the core devs should always be in charge and if needed apply changes even without consensus. Obviously I do not agree Cheesy Anyways, she knows a bit about Bitcoin, and I even offered her a physical vanity wallet carved in wood, which she loves. She doesn't use Bitcoin regualrly because she says she simply cannot buy goods or go shopping with Bitcoin... Not many retailers and websites take it, obviously.

Even if your partner doesn't accept Bitcoin, or doesn't care about it, it's easy: you just buy Bitcoins for yourself, put it in a multisig address, give your girlfriend one of the keys and leave the coins there. One day she might be interested or might need the coins... (And then you'll only let her redeem them if she learns how to spend from a multisig address Grin)

Dam i thought i had a hard headed girl friend.  OK so it seems like she doesnt like to be told direct you have to be more clever with her.  Maybe you just need a little more time to go by, like i said it was 1 year until my GF got interested.  My GF likes free stuff and rewards, when the circle $5 giveaway thing came out that is what got her into bitcoin.  I was like oh look you can get $5 if you download this app, she downloaded it and bingo.

They are too much attached to fashion that they would love if there might be some places where they could buy their makeup kits using BTC... Wink

My wife gets a bit pee'd off about the time I spend online to research and learn about Bitcoin, but she smiles when I buy her some stuff online. I include her in the browsing for goods and I show her how easy and secure it is to do the transactions.
She deposited some money into my account, to convert it to BTC for her to buy a Trezor. She has been a victim of credit card fraud, and appreciates the security of Bitcoin and hardware wallets.

Yes that is true but women are now so used to credit cards so it becomes difficult for us to introduce them to bitcoins but yes they would surely use it as a mode of payment if you suggest them to as it is our hard earned coins why would they hesitate in spending it??  Grin

My wife made me sell all of my miners and quit bitcoin because I was spending too much time researching and tinkering with the miners in the garage.  Now shes totally against it, ive even tried to pick up mining again but she gets mad and says she will leave me if I buy another miner.  Cry
