What would really drive worldwide adoption?

Biometric scans and mobile devices, maybe?
This means everybody must have a smartphone or device that is able to process QR codes and do OCR (scan bitcoin addresses), which is additionally offering a retina-scan camera, fingerprint sensor, saliva-analyzer or similar, to make sure that only the owner of the device can access the private key, decrypt the seed, handle transactions (and so on).

As cool and clever BTC might be, as hard and risky it is to use for average joe. He wants to flick an rfid card, maybe enter a short pin code, but that's it. Everything more inconvenient will scare him off, and average jane even more. Simple interfaces using secure backend solutions.

Don't call me names, i'm just brainstorming.
Who wants to join?

Brainstorming has a simple rule: No criticism allowed.
Instead of "You can't do X, because Y..." it's "To achieve X, you need to realize Y first, (which is dependent on A,B,C...)"
It's strictly constructive.

Anybody in?

EDIT: Maybe there's an existing thread, please point me to it if you know. If not and this starts to get somewhere, i'd start a new thread and ask the mod to move over existing comments.

everybody must

no

no look apart from that, you're starting with the assumptions that worldwide adoption is desirable and that bitcoin should be adapted to average people.

Currently credit and debit cards have this tap function for small amounts and once that is exceeded it will ask for a pin code, usually 4 digits, and you can pay for a lot of many other things. I think some have tried connecting these cards to bitcoin based accounts, but they keep getting closed down for reasons.

Innovation in BTC

Quote
Relatively new initiatives and show a more complete picture of Bitcoin stack technology.



Users when using Lightning can make transactions privately on the use of additional techniques and network layers, such as Tor, from here the percentage of private use of the lightning network can be estimated by analyzing the number of channel opening transactions in the chain compared to the number of public channels outside the chain.

Very interesting chart on innovations of Bitcoin.  I hope to see many of these adopted as well as articles on how to use them.

BTC still needs a lot of work to become more secure, private and easy to use (yeah, I know some of those contradict to some degree).  Still, ease of use will help both merchants and consumers consider using BTC.  I am here in another country which has very, very little BTC usage, but is has grown since we were here some eight months ago.

Well said. This angryeta thing won't end well...

Btw, why can't I find any reference (in english) to the "scandal" over the hyper expensive refined wood and LEATHER designer chair at their home?

Anyway, here it is in spanish: https://www.elmundo.es/f5/comparte/2019/12/03/5de636f521efa070288b4615.html

The irony and hypocrisy is very strong on that one.

I like the look of that graph, yet I am wondering whether it is behind a paywall or within an application?

In other words, I was trying to find a way to quickly link to such graph on a live basis - presumably through the https://coinmetrics.io/cm-network-data-pro/ website.. or maybe somewhere else?    Anyone?

Greta the gremlin's parents are actors.  The daughter is a down syndrome actor.  Most Jewish puppets posing as US representatives are also grade Z actors like AOC.  After the whole Jew world order thing implodes and the evil cult of Judaism is expelled from every nation on earth, I wouldn't be surprised if people just start randomly hanging actors too for all the lies and bullshit they've caused.

JJG

Makes me wonder what the (approx.) number of lost BTC there are out there...  And I presume BTC will occasionally get lost as (we) boomers die off w/out telling anyone where we have them?  

Smart HODL-ers may want to tell someone they trust how to get any HEDL BTC upon their deaths.  Is there already a thread for this?



realr0ach

"Good fences make good neighbors."  Been true for a long, long time.



V8s & bitserve

"Meme Greta" seems to be dying a quick death.  Too embarrassing for the Warmers?  Good riddance.

Starting to see another "Fun with Fractals" pattern forming. If it plays out, expect some boring price movements for a couple of weeks as well as a re-test of $6,600.



Perfect accumulation time imo Cool

Did you see the fractal for 2020 though?

9.5k in February then I'll let you check what happens after that (NebraskanGooner posted it on Twitter). But of course if the 9.5k price is achieved it would be perfect time to accumulate at 6.5k!

Hopefully, you are not going to get hurt too badly by having so many specific expectations regarding bitcoin's price dynamics course over the coming years.  Not that you matter anyhow since you are probably not even trading on your own nonsense besides making outlandish bets that you have no intention on paying when you are quite likely shown to be wrong.  I would imagine that the vast majority of normal bitcoin HODLers, accumulators and buyers are not going to be moved one iota (not the coin) by your assertions, but there could be a few that are innocently dumb enough to believe your baloney.

Two coins... the other chair is also another designer leather chair. Not to mention the trees needed to obtain that perfectly refined wood and the animals killed/tortured to obtain their fur.

All pretty coherent yeah.
