Hmm but he is asking if it waste of time mentioning, but I know what you mean.

But let say your mom or father don't give a fk about bitcoin so I think is just a waste of your time right mentioning it?

Of course it is not waste of time. The more people know about bitcoin the more successful it will be. It is really that simple.

The way I see it, no. By telling your friends about this, you're giving Bitcoin more exposure to your friends who would otherwise have no idea of. It would be better if you could explain it's pros and cons in depth with them. In the future, they wouldn't be so unfamiliar with it if they want to use it. By recommending Bitcoin, you are basically endorsing it. Even if they don't listen, they would at least know what it is about.

I have considered telling my family and some of my friends about Bitcoin but whenever I've tried, they fail to understand why it does have value and why it is extremely important specially in the current socioeconomic context.. they don't get it and see it as something really strange. Needless to say I wouldn't tell them to put any money on it. In a way it feels like im keeping something amazing to myself, but at the same time, I don't want to put people into the pressure of holding through rallies long term because most people aren't cut for that.

How to introduce Bitcoin to absolutely clueless people and is there even a point? Should we just let time pass and wait for them to naturally learn about it once it goes more mainstream?
I would rather learn them themselves about bitcoin than wasting my time and energy.People will not understand the importance of bitcoin unless they have some bad experience with fiat.

True but the general public don't even know about Bitcoin at all. If you mention Bitcoin to them frequent enough with the low transfer fees and the near instant speed, they may keep it in their mind and give it a try after they realise the cons of fiat. If you don't, they would think that fiat is the only legit way and continue to use it.

Even if they know bit coin exist will they be interested in it? It is better if you introduce bit coin properly and make them know
On how to earn and if it will be profitable and not wasting their time. Many people give up bit coin because of long process
Of earning big bucks. Just let them know that it will be worth the time.

Talk about it as it is another topic on the dinnertable, that's it. It's a waste of time talking to people about many things anyway

Yes you are right we can tell them the benefits of bitcoin but they will actually start using bitcoin when they can spend them where they usually spend fiat.For example my nephew buys a lots of stuffs from online shops but none of reputed local online ecommerce website accepts bitcoin so despite its all benefits,my nephew is not interested in switching over to bitcoin.I think we need more and more merchants to accept bitcoin for bitcoin to become mainstream.Take my example, I didn't know about skills money processor until I visited dynadot domain registrar and found skrill as payment method besides PayPal and CC.Out of curiosity I searched for skrill and found it better than PayPal.Needless to mention I immediately started using skrills.Now I use PayPal only if skrills payment option is not available with merchant.Bitcoin can become more popular if reputed merchants star accepting it then you and I dont need to spread the word anymore

You guys have to serve the information so, that they would seem to be interested. The main problem I see is that people serve the idea of a bitcoin so that the server would profit from the idea more than the one who the idea is served to. You need to serve the idea of a bitcoin so, that they would profit from it more than you do.

The problem we are facing is that no one wants to learn something new, they all are busy in their jobs and now they are used to that routine and boring life, so they don't wish to change their attitude and wants to get carried away with the same situation, but I am very much sure they would definitely regret in the future.

Maybe yes, some people who couldn't understand the Bitcoin technology to distinguish Bitcoin from other fade digital currency, these people might think that you're doing a pyramid sale.

you dont need said like that,its never useless when you tell your friend or family about bitcoin,its not wasting your time.
maybe your knowledge or your way to mentioning bitcoin to them,still not good..just try different way to mentioning them about bitcoin.

I don't really bother anymore. The few people I mentioned it too looked at me like I had invested in a floppy disk manufacturer.
