Cryptocurrency needs a boost. At a market cap of $12 billion, stagnant for the past several months and still falling short of its 2013 novelty high, the spread and use of digital currencies still remains relatively limited and fringe. What technologies such as Bitcoin lack is not advantages over current financial structures, as the ability to instantly and cheaply send any amount to anyone in the world over a distributed ledger, without the aid of a large and cumbersome third-party service, is plenty revolutionary. What the cryptocurrency community lacks is sufficient activism, a concerted push to approach individuals and businesses, dominate media narrative, and in general do a good job of selling crypto to the uninformed, unconvinced world. A swarm of digital evangelists is what is needed to take digital currency to wide use.
