I've been a long time prowler on this site, so I know there are a lot of smart people here. I want to know, what would you do to bring more adoption of cryptocurrencies to the general public?

I'll kick it off. Once my store takes off, I would like to put myself into a position to organize a Blockchain-themed music festival. Target the more active youth, you know? I would have a "bazaar" area with trendy brands that strictly accept cryptocurrency, and kiosks with representatives from exciting new Blockchain projects to spread awareness.

It is important to properly advertise crypto currency and blockchain. This would promote more people to use and invest in the market. also awareness will be created and fewer people will by scammed by firms. Moreover this would put pressure on firms to accept crypto currency as a method of payment further helping the market of crypto currency.

Actually to promote mainstream adoption the young people should become more active to spread more and more informations about the importance of the crypto currency.

No better way to promote bitcoin by having Starbucks, 7-Eleven, Amazon and Starbucks accept cryptocurrency as payment. And to install as many bitcoins ATMs as possible.

I would target the worldwide demographic of people who don't have good acess to banking services or where those services are too expensive and also encourage employers, especially those that hire people for online work to use Bitcoin due to being more straightforward and cheaper alternative to the current payment channels. Also I'd promote Bitcoin in countries with weak economies and countries that are struggling through economic crisis, because Bitcoin can help people preserve their wealth.

Countries with weak economies also have people who doesn't have access to internet, I have been to countries like that and only the big cities have internet access the ones on the remote areas doesn't have or the people in remote areas doesn't have computers and phones, strange as it may sound there are still places like this.  I think the government themselves should be initiating the use of blockchain and cryptocurrencies which would be more effective to convert the mass.

Actually you can’t buy anything from money because if you have enough knowledge then you can use this based on this questions you can use social media for this implications also you cans spread news via friend so for everything people doesn’t need money.

While it's not a scenario which makes much sense at all, I'll explore it for you. Without a doubt, you're going to be able to push this on people who use a good amount of money wire transferring services - such as Western-Union. These are services which are predominately used by the poor, and if you're able to get these people over to using bitcoin (as their new wire transferring service) then you'd have millions upon millions of people which could be lifelong (and generational bitcoin customers)

I would have a "bazaar" area with trendy brands that strictly accept cryptocurrency, and kiosks with representatives from exciting new Blockchain projects to spread awareness.

The young people usually don`t have savings,so they can`t invest that much into cryptocurrencies.
Most of the young people have student debt and credit cards,so they might want to invest a little amount into bitcoin and HODL,waiting for btc to skyrocket.Anyway,I think that nowadays social media is huge and I would hire a bunch of social media influencers to promote crypto to their followers.

I will add a "Information" desk with trained people to assist new people to signup at local exchanges or arrange with a local exchange to rent a kiosk to assist with these new signups. I will also get one of the Bitcoin ATM manufacturers to sponsor a Bitcoin ATM for the event to offer people the opportunity to buy some bitcoins at the event.

Great idea, hope you pull it off.  Cool

There how many ways for promotion. The young generation of a society can promote it via social media. If the content is good enough, it will get more exposure in a very short time.

There is nothing more powerful motivation than to give incentives to people in social media sites to use crypto within the social media site. If Facebook will really be creating their own coin, its really going to influence the people worldwide. If the facebook token will give profit to the holders, the world will change over night and will register to exchanges to buy tokens. I think I could be one of those who will promote facebook token to spread the world.

This actually depends on the capability of the people behind the team. Even with financial aid, there are projects which failed to create a good hype. And without much financial aid, there were projects, which has done very good due to a good strategic plans. All in all, it varies.

Oh snap! That's an amazing addition I didn't even think about. Dude that's awesome, thanks!

Another thing that's been crossing my mind, is the WHY. WHY should I use it. WHY is it any better. There was this new product called Graphene that was all the hype some-odd years ago, and it's fallen off the public radar almost completely. I understand that scientists and researchers will gather hype in the initial stages to attract attention i.e investors. However, while the technology is better, it's not "better" enough to actually be worth replacing already established systems which involve the "inferior" silicon and the like. I guess the equivalent of, "This pillow is $2 more here, but if I drive 10 miles away I can get a slightly better pillow for $2 less..... naaa." You know what I mean?

That leads me to wondering, WHY is it better? Back when I was in high school, my father found someone in our neighborhood that sold us a used car for $2000 cheaper than how much he had it marked online, because we were going to pay him straight cash. $2000 SAVINGS is not chump change for the average consumer. Obviously, I'm not saying these kinds of savings should be present across all situations, but if it were common knowledge that it happens fairly often... you know? It's this kind of stuff that will make people ACTUALLY care about going out of their way to incorporate it into their lives.

....so hoooooow lol

I think we should spread positivity among every one and spread the benefits of it among people. If majority of the mass gets involved into this and adopt it no one will be able to stop crypto.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. However, the more I look at different forums and youtube comments about how people would approach this, they seem to get lost in the ideology of it all. There's some stuff that people are assuming about others, or just straight up overlooking.

If you could, please interpret this next statement as innocently as possible. Humor me, and pretend that it's fact, rather than me just hating on humanity lol just so you can see the point that I'm trying to get across.

People are selfish. Not in an evil way filled with malice or anything. Just that their needs and wants come first on a day-to-day basis. And they have every right to be! People have priorities, you know? And the only times that I can confidently say that the people have rallied together, was when they directly felt their freedoms and liberties were in jeopardy. Again, this is only what I MYSELF am confident enough to use as an example. If there are more, which I'm sure there are, I don't know what else has unified people so strongly. In more developed countries, this is a benefit we are allowed, and one that I fully support everyone take advantage of! Enjoy yourself!

With that in mind, I'm wondering if we're all taking the wrong approach. Pushing a grand idea of how the future could be, doesn't interest people enough. I'm sure you go through the same thing, but when I try to explain the benefits of cryptocurrency adoption, I can almost feel the foundation of their resistance to the idea: "I don't feel like going out of my way to add extra steps, to do things that I'm already accomplishing every day. Very easily at that."

So that's got me thinking. The way to go, is to INTERRUPT their every day way of life. I'm going to use my vendors-at-the-concert idea as an example.
"Oh snap! I've never seen this Supreme apparel anywhere else before! If I had this... yoooo I would be the hippety hoppiest pimp in town! But wait, I can only get it with Bitcoin? Aw man that's extra work... but I REEAAAALLY want it. Wait a minute, Nike has an exclusive line you can only buy with Cryptocurrency too??"

At that point, we've gone straight up INCEPTION and created that internal conflict of should-I-or-should-I-not, just by getting in the way of something they want. Feed them their own nightmares of "fear of missing out".

What do you guys think? I'm sorry that was so long, I have a lot of time alone at my day job and this stuff gets me so excited!

If there were no other resources then whole trade and business was in Bitcoin. Everyone should promote Bitcoin because in future we need this. It is profitable business and there are less chances of loss in business via Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. One day everyone will accept this.

I still introduce cryptocurrency to my friends, and many of them interest with something smells "money." And later, they think that this is a big opportunity to get part in the cryptocurrency business so they can have a chance to make money.

And soon, after more people know about cryptocurrency, I think I will create one small institute gathering all people who have an interest in the cryptocurrency so we can think about how to spread the news about cryptocurrency to other people. With support from many people, I am sure that it will reach more people to come to the cryptocurrency.

Fiat still beats cryptocurrency in many ways, adoption is key but in general public doesn't too much interested in things on BTC when its not monetary rewarding i believe, a scale of reward option must be present to acquire mainstream adoption (aside from market trading), well the concept of 'new money' doesnt applicable too much when there's so much resistance in using in real world applications
