There seems to be endless discussion about keeping your keys safe, more wallet options than anyone can count, loads of information to learn in order to use Bitcoin (I still don't get every aspect after months of interested study) and basically, Bitcoin is really complicated! Normal people are not going to get this!

  • They'll loose their private keys and passwords
  • Their computer will have Malware
  • They won't bother with paper wallets or paper wallets won't be kept safe (all money gone)
  • They will fall for wallet scams which steal their keys
  • They will fall for vanity products such as fancy wallets which just take their BTC
  • Not be interested in Bitcoin and so not understand what it even is
  • Send to the wrong address
  • Use a poor wallet which anyone can hack
  • Loose their email address to a hacker

So what's the plan for dealing with these issues once it gets to everyday people like cleaners and shelf-stackers etc?!
