this is very tricky, because usually my friends and family are somehow satisfied with their banks, mobile banking applications and whole financial sector is quite stable here (so far)

anyway, I did it with something calling "guerilla method" so I gave them 0.1BTC on papers wallets, told them about value and ask them to spend it..
People are usually content with what they have, if it is working for them. People seem to even ignore better options that are out there.
By the way, 0.1BTC? That's actually quite a lot to give, especially as you're giving it to many people. What if they just do not know what to do with it? Would you leave the exploring to them?

Well, because if you give them 0.000nothing, they will simply don't care but if you told them: hey, this is bitcoin fraction worth ~25USD do anything what you want with it, you will motivate them to observe what is going on:)

and sorry, but using bitcoin is simply not better option these days. I dunno where are you from, but on my place (~400k town in central Europe), you can't literally buy anything with it..(I mean real goods and services locally, not some service via web...)

whole financial sector is quite stable here

Thats a mirage in the desert.

The fact that they stand 2 centimeters away from the abyss ,while other countries are 1 centimeter away, brings false sense of comfort Cheesy

All global financial institutions, based on fiat money (which is 99.99% of them) will fall in one way or another in the upcoming 5-15 years.

So either they are ignorant, or uneducated, or lazy to educate themseves, or a combination of the previous.


If I were you I`d tell them to visit this site (pick your country from there)
http://www.nationaldebtclocks.org/

And ask them to think again Smiley Those debts are irreversible.

This is the most difficult thing for most bitcoiner Cry

I would help them make a bitcoin wallet, how to use & secure it.
Then i would give little bitcoin & show them what can bitcoin do Smiley
It's a good way of introducing it to them. So they will understand everything Smiley

I use bittorrent as an example to show them how it's decentralized. Most of my friends know about bitcoin by now though Smiley
