The idea of creating a ‘sharing economy’ sounds great on paper, but it has proven to be quite a hassle when translating it to the real world. While many people are dissatisfied with the current financial infrastructure, hardly any of them feels like taking matters into their own hands.

We are creatures of habit, and we got used to giving control over to authority when it comes down to financial matters. The people thinking out of the box, gets labeled as

"Anarchists" / "Rebels" and so forth... The early Bitcoiners was the pioneers and the people who started to think out of the box... The rest just followed their lead.

Most people are scared for different reasons, but it's mostly the fear of the unknown. We also have a strong urge to conform to the norm, and that holds us back.

Once more people take that first step, more will follow in their footsteps... We should not force them, just lead by example.  Wink

For most people life is earn - spend. I'd be very extremely amazed if most of them want to fuck around with the bit that happens between those two processes.

There are enough others with the interest, want or need to look a little deeper but I won't be expecting the majority any time soon.

The amount of people who are actually wanting to do any kind of effort for a change, are scarce. It's in people's nature to wait and hope for something better to show up.

If we all keep waiting nothing will happen. But then again, how do we combine efforts in order to force through the change we so much want?
