Simply don't. Earn them and don't exchange them to fiat. Use them inside the system.

No one beside me know much about Bitcoin, I tried to explain to my friend too but they seems to ignore me and some even laugh at me saying how silly I am to believe this.

Try to explain and answer the questions. If it doesn't help, just stop. They're obviously judging things based on feelings rather then facts. Everyone do this from time to time. Okay maybe not everyone, but especially the older generation.
When it comes to mining, pay them for the burned electricity and tell them to stfu. Smiley

I gave up trying to convince my parents about BTC, I've decided I'm just going to get mysterious packages and then suddenly move out without telling them Tongue

Heh. My parents have been dead for a long time so there's not much point trying to tell them anything.

I do try to convince my grandchildren about BTC though. "Each time when I mention about Bitcoin, they tell me its scam and don't buy it even when they have no idea what Bitcoin is."

Some people are born old. Some are not.

I wish there was less ageism here though.

Its not the money they are worrying, I actually did offer to pay part of the bills. But what they have in their mind is to teach me the right way of saving money.

I can help you,

if you gather important Bitcoin information around the net,
and you also look for a website that looks Official and trustworthy

I could build a cheap, or even a free website for you to show them some quick Bitcoin history
of course you could use Wix or other

if your parents are not conviced, stop trying, try an uncle, a neighbor, a friend until you find one who's convinced

my personal experience, some people are hard to convince why try with them?
other people are easier

or simply tell your parents you would really like their support with you on this,
you could trade their support for any chore in the house

or receive packages and move out of the house
but that's not convincing , thats pissing them off haha

straight talking

or ignore all of the above and live with it for couple years, months to come

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who wishes for this.

Anyway I've attempted to convince my parents to consider Bitcoin but they haven't really looked into it, so I figure I've done my part; they'll come around to it on their own if they're really interested, since they're aware of what it is now.

One miner from Venezuela claimed he converted his parents to understanding the significance of bitcoin when he converted some to PMs and fiat and shoved them into his father's hand. Smiley

Well if your parents are not technologically advanced in today's world it's quite easy.  Explain what a cpu does then explain what a gpu does.  Then tell them to shut the hell up and to not ask questions that they really did not want to know the answers too in the first place.   Lips sealed

How can you let me down when I have no expectations?

Sounds to me like they're a completely different ideology to you and have been brought up to believe that paper money and debt is the only true worthwhile currency out there, unfortunately this is going to be something we'll be bickering with them about right up until the entire system collapsing. The only thing I can suggest is just keep it stored away and make your own way when you've got enough money to comfortably move out, chances are they will probably see you're right once everything happens the way we've all been saying for months now or they'll just cling to their dying ideals.

The only thing I've so far managed to convince my parents about, well mostly my dad, was about the euro collapsing, two family members of mine argued with me about it saying I was wrong but he actually looked at the evidence because he's a historian/writer so I managed to convince him of that at least but as people have said on this board I think there are too many out there, particularly the older bunch that have been socially engineered to believe in fractional reserve banking and the paper system.

I'm sure everyone will start paying attention when I start getting stacks of silver bars delivered to my house Tongue

Back in the early 1990's much the same thing happened with the Internet - people would say bad things about it, saying it was being utilized for porn and gambling etc and etc (and they were right) and that it should be shut down.  They did not see the great potential for good.  Often those who know next to nothing about something will be the ones who express negative opinions about it.

Attitudes change when adoption of a "new" way of doing things hits a critical mass.  That mass is forming, you can see it if you pay attention,

Sincerely I am, Johnny BitcoinSeed .com
