At first there were very optimistic because they've seen the fruit on my achievements.

But on the next days, they seem to be boring and lost their interest to crypto when they have seen and understand what does volatility means. I never encouraged them again because they are only looking to the crypto market as something that they can give them wealth overnight.
This is very a very common reaction to the success of a person close to them, people immediately want to find out how you did it because they think that if you were able to do it then there is a chance they will be able to do it as well, what they do not see is all the effort that you put into researching and invest in different coins in order to produce those results.

And most of the time they want to skip the process that led you to become successful in this market and as you may guess that means that it will be impossible for them to replicate your success and then they will blame you for it saying that you did not reveal all your techniques or that you simply lied to them, so for some time my policy has been to not talk about cryptocurrencies anymore to my friends.

the reaction was normal, because there was always the authority of a person who studies everything new and promising)

Perhaps that is true and the people around you actually respect people who knows things. Others usually laugh at me whenever I introduce something new to them. They go behind my back and talk as if I'm some crazy person. It really has gotten to the point that if you're a smart person, you're going to have to tone it down for the people around you. It's like it's a sin to be smart when you're around dumb people.

Personally I had to build respect from others so whenever I come up with these crazy and new ideas about what to do in life, they aren't just going to laugh at me and not take it seriously. I did it by introducing something and then making something concrete from it. The first thing is bitcoin. They laughed at me but by the time I made money from it, they all immediately got interested in it. The other things that I've introduced and made concrete results from, I'd rather not say but it comes a bit of building your image from nothing to someone who comes up with crazy ideas that actually working before you get authority.

Gone are the days when the crazies are considered as smart and unique. You're lucky to be in a place where new things are embraced and not seen as too much/too unrealistic/funny.

Electronic money is not only related to finance and banking, but also to many other areas. Thanks to the Blockchain application, many businesses save a lot of money by having more layers of management, storing all the information. Good friends are excited to know this information and they also want to know more about the world of electronic money.

When I start the topic of crypto-currencies with friends, I just do not understand. They ask what it is and what it needs. Sometimes I have to make efforts to explain.Only some people understand me. Wink

I was questioned on crypto currencies legalization. I explained the facts happening around. Few received it with convincing reactions and few just ignored it. I really felt bad for the guys who did not care about crypto currencies as I really know the fruitfulness? I happily taught few others about crypto currencies. What was your friends expression when you introduced bitcoin to them?


My friends ignore what im saying about cryptocurrency but when they know I already gain on it they become so curious and wanted to learn.They want to earn on it like what I do.

Majority of my friends was convinced about cryptocurrency and few of them thinks that it was a scam.As a matter of fact,some of my friends are already started to invest in crypto hoping that it will also change their future.

It is physically absent and we will lose money. I explained slowly about bitcoin from A to Z as much as my understanding, and showed my other friends who had enjoyed the benefits of bitcoin trading. Trade in cyberspace but when bitcoin can be cashed in real.

My friends ignore me when I start speaking about or talking anything about crypto currencies. They don't get it, or they don't want to understand it. They are leasing but they are not leasing for real. It is hard to say why they don't want to be involved, but they are very skeptical and always saying, where is all that money? did you cash out, where is it...
I have the same experience with you brother, when I start a topic about cryptocurrency and bitcoin my friends ignored me too and said that crypto is all about scamming other people. They don't know the meaning of crypto and they also don't know what cryptocurrency is all about.

my friends on the other hand felt excited when I explained closely about cryptocurrency back in 2015. Normally some news just talk through about it and didn't usually go in specific. One of my friends bought some coins in 2016 and made a good profit when bitcoin hit 20.000$.

Disappointing reaction tbh, but each to their own. I don't like when friends who have zero knowledge about crypto, start talking trash about BTC and how it's a bubble blah blah blah. All I can do is to continue to do what I love to do and ignore all haters, it's their loss after all lol... stupid ignorant people.

When I started telling my friends things that can be done with cryptos, they would only ignore me and even connote it only as a scam. Then I still insist telling them such things about cryptos and hopefully they would somehow understand that it is the wealth for the future.
People have a tendency to not believe things that are too good to be true and while that kind of skepticism is healthy at the same time it can be very damaging for people, because there are many things that seems to be too good to be true and yet are completely real, and one of those things is bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general and unfortunately thanks to that attitude many are going to miss the great benefits that bitcoin could bring to their lives.

Introducing bitcoin with others is not  easy like as we know. Both of them did not believe and most of them tell it was a scam. We never  deny the fact that  maybe they encountered  some situation that bitcoin is present and used for illegal transactions or  maybe on news that they heard about bitcoin that against it. Do not argue with them , dont force just let them know what bitcoin really is  and just show them how btc helps you.

It's a little bit hard to those friends that have to introduce to them because they are not really interested of doing some online currency. Maybe they are still young and they always like to play a while ongoing in adulthood year because they are not really serious yet in doing things like making more money to save a better future.

I remember when i told one of my closest friends to invest in this coin, he trusted me and decided to put $1000 into it, a single one only.
2 months later the price dropped 100 times cheaper (from 1k sats to 10 sats) his investment turn from 1k to 10 bucks. He was so upset and decided to stay away from crypto currency  Embarrassed .
I never told anyone to invest into anything from then on.


I also experienced the same thing that I will never share to my friends until I be successful in cryptocurrency.  So that I have to proof to show that what i share is true. Some of them is very carefull when it comes to investment. Even my sister laugh at me that i am too positive about cryptocurrency even i dont  gain from it. I see the bigger picture of cryptocurrency that they didnt see.

First time hearing about cryptocurrencies, my friend's reaction is usually thinking that this thing is a scam. But when I told them that it isn't and I have proof to that then that change their mindset about bitcoin and other cryptos. Now, some of them are started making their investment in crypto little by little.
