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?

Yeah same with me. it's hard to introduce and tell our family and friends about bitcoin. once i tell my friend what is bitcoin and how it works. and he don't understand about that.

Depends on how you would otherwise spend your time. If you are confident that you are on your way towards becoming the next Einstein or for that matter, Satoshi Nakamoto, I guess it is a waste of time, relatively speaking.

I think also that the method of advertising Bitcoin is really important.
The community have to simplify the using and the explaining of how Bitcoin's works for everyone and especially for newbies with crypto currency's world

That's true , because many newbies don't even know anything about Bitcoin and crypto currencies world
So explaining them a little bit the things could help to advertise this powerful crypto currency

I've actually started talking about bitcoin to one of my coworkers, and he seems intrigued.  I think I posted this somewhere else, but I told him what a signature campaign is and that I'm in one and he seemed interested that I could earn money just by posting stuff in an online forum.  Admittedly the payouts aren't huge, but the bitcoin is paid out nonetheless.  I've told some other people, but I still have a hard time explaining the advantages of bitcoin.

Telling our family about bitcoins is not a bad idea, as they would never make fun of you if anything wrong happens.
I think sharing with friends is bad idea though sometimes, because they make fun of you when things go wrong and they do not like it.

In my case, they just interest to know more about bitcoin when I gave them proof that I really make money online. So hard to explain at first so need a clear output as a proof.

I believe that once took place the change of generation, will be 'much more' easy to understand and use bitcoin for beginners because they use computers or smartphones already at  '6 years old.

It's always good to tell your family and friends what Bitcoin is and how it works.
Because you never know, maybe they get a Bitcoin later.

you should always try and spread the word about bitcoin, this is what i always try and do.
try using your own experience and introduce them to bitcoin with setting up a wallet for them and giving them a small amount to hook them up.

I usually talk about Bitcoins with my buddies, persuaded a friend to buy some Bitcoins few years ago. But not got anyone to use it often. But the struggle continues.

I think its better to tell them more about the benefit of holding and using bitcoin as payment processor than other usual one like paypal. Showing them how to get profit out of bitcoin may sound hard to them at first.

I think it's very interesting and important that we mention Bitcoin to friends and family and relatives. Because this powerful crypto currency still need more support from the community, and we notice that a lot of people not knowing anything about it till now
