You should also include support from our government because I think that is one of the many reasons why we are not having the support or user that we need for bitcoin. Imagine if we got the support of our own government and they talk about bitcoin in news, in their conference and etc, it's my opinion but if I hear these talks in different medias I think I will get interested in it and believe in it even if it is the first time I heard about bitcoin.

I don't think goverment can support this kind of bitcoin idea of using this on our mode of payment of the country today. The president is not that open minded about it and worst if he knows this kind of trading, or freedom of online income generating website without their control; government might ban bitcoin. One thing I only believe is a certain idea of sharing bitcoin to a friend and letting then learn day by day is helpful to push bitcoin an anonymous knowledge about it. Our country is not yet ready about this, maybe in the near future it will; important is people is educated about it rather than implementing it without proper knowledge.

I like the idea of getting people to start converting fiat into Bitcoin as part of their normal savings plan. Now for example, after two years of seeing me involved in Bitcoin, my Family now are interested in getting hold of Bitcoin as a saving tool. My Father bought his fiat 300 USD worth of Bitcoin a few weeks ago.

We can’t convince anyone but we can put up voting throughout the world to make bitcoin as primary processor at big brands. Mostly the food chains such as dominos, KFC, MacDonals, Burger King (Russian started accepted bitcoin) and we can make it to our goals of using bitcoin. Not only this, big shopping malls such as Walmart should try this out. With that mall only there will be tremendous introduction of bitcoin to the world. Just imagine about it. It can make it happen.

I and many others just hold their bitcoins and wait till it gets worth more. But that is not how a currency should work. A currency is meant to be used in daily trades for groceries and so on.

My question is how can we push the actual use of the bitcoin and what is nessacary to do that ?

I think first, we should wait till the scaling problem is hopefully solved in near future, because right now even if I had f.e. a grocery store, I would not accept Bitcoin as payment becasue of the confirmation time of the tx (I would hand out some coupons which can be bought for BTC)

After this problem is solved this would be my ideas, I hope you help me gather more:

  • Convince organisations like amnesty international to accept bitcoin as donations
  • Convince big internet companies like amazon to accept payments via bitcoin, this should take a while but with some petitions they might consider it (propably better starting with some smaller companies)
  • Start accepting bitcoins yourself, not only on the interent but for example if you are a student and do some private tutoring, and have a small ad for you on a blackboard somewhere, you could print a "Bitcoin accepted" on it.

It is very difficult for us to do that, we do not have enough power to make people believe in bitcoin. On the contrary, we can push the government to do that, with the government accepting bitcoin, people will use more bitcoin.

In my opinion support from the government is nearly imposible, because it will harm their influence in the long term. Sometime they will have to accept it if bitcoin doesn´t die but they will never help it to gain power

I'm sure everyone will be interested in investing in bitcoin if they start trading with bitcoin like me first I do not understand about bitcoin. But after my friend explained about bitcoin I was interested to follow the development of bitcoin so I think it is necessary to introduce bitcoin to each person so that others can understand the bitcoin which until now not many people who understand about crypto

Although I agree with you that a currency is meant to be spent and more people should spend their Bitcoin, but people are allowed to do what they want with their money. Also, there is no incentive for people to spend their Bitcoin, but if they hold onto it, chances are it's going to rise up in price and they would make extra money. However, the biggest point is that Bitcoin isn't suited for day to day transactions in it's current state. With long transaction times and high transaction fees, no one in their right mind would be spending their Bitcoin on daily transactions. I think that with segwit and the increase of block size, transaction times and fees will be lower and more people will be tempted to spend their Bitcoin. Although, I think the easiest way for people to be persuaded to use Bitcoin is if their government accepted Bitcoin as a valid payment method. If big companies also started to accept Bitcoin, more people would spend their Bitcoin.

If you feel like it is too early to push Bitcoin in your country officially, then your idea is right in your situation. But some countries are ready to accept Bitcoin on the highest level, on the government level I mean, and we can see it already happens in South Korea, Switzerland, Japan, and several other countries are going to do the same.

Your right. We can't convince any one, all we have to do is to prove to them that we can earn money in bitcoin, if they notice that They will do something just to understand much more about bitcoin. Just wait for what you want.

The issue of forcing people to accept bitcoin is an already in motion issue by default and it will get to a point that they will be the one that will accept without any form of coercion or even a discount as it is. What we all need to do is to just continue believing in it and discourage the illegal use of bitcoin so they don't use that as an excuse, and with that, in due time, things will fall in place even beyond what we could have imaging by forcing our way in.

After we develop the initial stimulus in the currency organic growth tends to take care of itself
People well a good majority live from Bill to Bill without much savings or income left from the next paycheck and live outside their means, so in general if people want to invest they might use Bitcoin and hold it because its all the more difficult at present.

That said having services paid in Bitcoin and banking with Bitcoin is a good way to track your finances and keep your goals in your means as people can look back on the blockchain see that 100 dollar Android Box they bought with Bitcoin back in 2013 would now be worth 1K and think well then I should just consider Bitcoin my savings account and use cash instead Tongue.

You should also include support from our government because I think that is one of the many reasons why we are not having the support or user that we need for bitcoin. Imagine if we got the support of our own government and they talk about bitcoin in news, in their conference and etc, it's my opinion but if I hear these talks in different medias I think I will get interested in it and believe in it even if it is the first time I heard about bitcoin.

In my opinion support from the government is nearly imposible, because it will harm their influence in the long term. Sometime they will have to accept it if bitcoin doesn´t die but they will never help it to gain power

It is not "nearly impossible" and as for your information, we have different countries out there that are starting or started to support or accept Bitcoin. Japan is our best example there. So why does other countries legalize bitcoin if this, as you've said, "will harm their influence in the long term." They had a thorough research about Bitcoin before jumping in. And if Bitcoin will harm them then why did they jump into Bitcoin?

Quote
...but they will never help it to gain power

I completely disagree. If ever a country's government announced their acceptance of Bitcoin, its citizens will be intrigued about what Bitcoin is. Then they (the citizens) will be aware of what Bitcoin is. They will start to engage in Bitcoin and as a result Bitcoin will gain power from it. The best example is, again, Japan.

It must happen organically, or it will not happen. People has to find a reason to use Bitcoin. If you can use fiat to do everything you need, then average Joe will not look forward to using Bitcoin. When it becomes a necessity because citizens lose their money on banks due bad government moves like in Venezuela, then they will see the need of bitcoin.

Other use cases include overseas transactions. But the average joe couldn't care less about doing groceries with bitcoin in the first world because they don't need it at least right now. Thats why the gold-like features of bitcoin are more important than anything else.

Before encouraging big and small companies and businesses to accept Bitcoin as a mode of payment. It is best that you should spread the knowledge about Bitcoin to your friends, acquaintances, colleagues, or to any person you know. That way, more and more people will know about Bitcoin and if more people uses Bitcoin, companies and businesses will start to accept Bitcoin. And this will continue to spread. All will go with the flow,all you have to do is be the force that will trigger a big flow.

I couldn't agree more, all we have to do is to spread the Bitcoin news to the people in our sphere of contact and have them gain interest in it and in no time they'd start applying it in their daily life and with such more merchants will begin to accept them all over the world.

Do we really have to push for it? I mean, i think ge use of btc would come naturally in time as more and more people use it and businesses realize how it can help them. With btc's fast emergence and popularity, i don't think we need to pushbfor it as it will definitely come in time.

We can’t convince anyone but we can put up voting throughout the world to make bitcoin as primary processor at big brands. Mostly the food chains such as dominos, KFC, MacDonals, Burger King (Russian started accepted bitcoin) and we can make it to our goals of using bitcoin. Not only this, big shopping malls such as Walmart should try this out. With that mall only there will be tremendous introduction of bitcoin to the world. Just imagine about it. It can make it happen.



Your right. We can't convince any one, all we have to do is to prove to them that we can earn money in bitcoin, if they notice that They will do something just to understand much more about bitcoin. Just wait for what you want.
I have the same opinion. At present, it’s unfortunately little hard to make others realize about the worth of bitcoins and their amazing features. But that day is not far away, when bitcoins will be accepted universally. Even it has already begun. Many online sites are accepting bitcoins including Japanese airline as well.

I and many others just hold their bitcoins and wait till it gets worth more. But that is not how a currency should work. A currency is meant to be used in daily trades for groceries and so on.

My question is how can we push the actual use of the bitcoin and what is nessacary to do that ?

I think first, we should wait till the scaling problem is hopefully solved in near future, because right now even if I had f.e. a grocery store, I would not accept Bitcoin as payment becasue of the confirmation time of the tx (I would hand out some coupons which can be bought for BTC)

After this problem is solved this would be my ideas, I hope you help me gather more:

  • Convince organisations like amnesty international to accept bitcoin as donations
  • Convince big internet companies like amazon to accept payments via bitcoin, this should take a while but with some petitions they might consider it (propably better starting with some smaller companies)
  • Start accepting bitcoins yourself, not only on the interent but for example if you are a student and do some private tutoring, and have a small ad for you on a blackboard somewhere, you could print a "Bitcoin accepted" on it.
Education is the best bet for pushing bitcoins to everyone, as soon as we explain the profitability there is to gain in bitcoins to someone, the person will become really interested and may venture into it.

Actually we don't really need to push because when everyone realize the usage of Bitcoin they will start to accepting Bitcoin the problem is some people knew Bitcoin as a criminal coin, so they don't want to used or accept Bitcoin, if Bitcoin popularity and usage can be spread in positive way, I believe we will gained more users

What we need for now is to solve bitcoin problems which its decision in the hands of devs and the miners to vote and agreed about the solutions, there is nothing we can do except watch it and waiting, or you can give some suggestions to them.
Bitcoin has some advantages which people will attracted to, after more adopters get into it, they will think about use it in daily transactions as well. Imagine if stores/merchants owners use bitcoin too, they will accept bitcoin without we push them.
