This requires government and media guidance to achieve this goal! The media is only a role of public opinion!
But the government will not do this because the legal currency is the main currency of a country!

Bitcoin is not suitable for regular payments. Bitcoin is usually used for international trade. The use of micropayments is unscientific, and stellar coins are more suitable for small payments. We won't see large-scale payments for Bitcoin, which capitalists can pay in bitcoin.
I think Bitcoin is a currency which is easily used by any deal no matter it is international or local, online or offline. It only need the system requirement which will be installed in the required places to pay with it. It also need our support to promote it and to accept it only.

Bitcoin BTC can be a currency only if its price is stable.
but I think if the price of bitcoin is stable is not much different from the coins used in a tourist place, if only limited to that I think people will not be interested they will certainly choose the ordinary currency, precisely bitcoin has many interested people because the price tends to be stable and move aggressively which will bring more optimal profits

its hard because bitcoin price is unstable. from unstable, they can make gap for their advantages. so, if you want to make it became real currency, bitcoin price must be set like fiat value.
i think, each country can make their coin for theirself. so it can make much choice when you want to make payment, and the one is via cryptocurrent, and thats must be legal

How can we get people to use bitcoin as a real currency and not just a quick way to get cash as a lot of people seem to do? When I say currency, I mean the literal definition of currency as something that is used as a medium of exchange.
Even online, there are only a few stores who are accepting it as payment.

Its depend on merchant. If merchant already accept bitcoin as payment, i am believe people will use it because bitcoin is more flexible and more secure than paper money. The obstacle about bitcoin right now is the price too volatile and i think its make merchant afraid to accept bitcoin because it will reducing their profits. But if crypto price recovery, i am believe many merchant will accept crypto for payment

maybe it could also be impossible. using bitcoin as a medium of exchange is indeed greatly facilitated, in addition to being safe and easy to use basically, but from the merchant's own level if you allow to use bitcoin for payment, it will be easier to pay, but at this time rarely want to use bitcoin as a trading tool buy it.

if you want to adopt bitcoin for world payment purposes, then there must be a financial institution behind Bitcoin that keeps prices stable
the worst impact is, the loss of the decentralized nature of bitcoin itself, because bitcoin starts to be controlled by an institution
like the example is paypal, where paypal is popular because of the price stability of the USD rate which is the current world currency, so paypal is an alternative payment online

Even if people wanted to but the resources is not enough and the availability of this currency is not yet ready worldwide,theres only some rooms when we can spend this great coin not like in japan when all of the things that can be used by yen is available in bitcoin also.so what we need tl do for now is just spread the technology behind all coins and let the peopl decide if they will enter this community or not

The problem with Bitcoin and crypto in general is that it's very volatile. The price keeps changing. Imagine accepting $5000 worth of Bitcoin for a TV or something and the next day Bitcoin is worth $2500. You've lost half your money in one day and all you did was accept BTC as payment.
You are right but if we will take the start then a good time will begin. Others will also start to use it and then the price of it will start in the forward direction and with that then people will not fear of the volatile price but they will be happen with the rising price.

Bitcoin is already a currency but it is not yet really used like the fiat currencies. The reason is that it is not yet supported everywhere as a payment method either online or offline. That is why people still considering Bitcoin mainly as an asset, they trade and hold it for making good profits.

I am agree with you. Bitcoin is already a currency in Virtual world. As you can see, they trade their tokens or coins to have a Bitcoin. And it is number one rank as a currency in crypto world. It is also now, popular in many places and from Bitcoin you can exchange it into your national currency. They do hold, sell and buy because it is the thing that you can do when you have it.

Many people afraid using their bitcoin in merchant because government not having regulation about it. Beside that, not many people knowing about bitcoin and people still thinking bitcoin is a scam. If more people understand about bitcoin and government allow it, i am believe people will using it as payment

The only way to get the public's attention to Bitcoin is through effective awareness creation by Bitcoin users. Bitcoin users must study and understand the basic concepts of Bitcoin and the Blockchain in order to explain explicitly to the understanding of a peer, friend or a family member who is new to crypto.
Remember, a lot of people out there are harbouring whole lot of misconceptions about crypto and Bitcoin hence be ready to correct them with professionalism in order to gain their trust and confidence. Avoid giving in to FUDs and always be ready to debunk those false news about crypto.

indeed the role of the government is needed to foster trust in the community. in my country almost no one uses bitcoin as a transaction, because there was once a raid for that

To make people use bitcoin as a medium of exchange in my opinion by increasing adoption. Because if more and more people adopt bitcoin, it means that more and more bitcoin is used, and surely it will also be used as a payment tool. But I don't know if there is someone who uses bitcoin as a payment tool even though the price is very volatile. Of course this will definitely be a consideration to use bitcoin as a payment tool. This might be a difficult.

Government should accept the circulation of bitcoin and its development.
if every country will accept it, merchants will start to accommodate the BTC.
And people will start coming to have BITCOIN. this is the best way to get people.

Even the price is not stable bitcoin can be a currency as long as many merchant will open their payment option to accept bitcoin.
Yes! merchant is the only way to adopt BITCOIN by many people all over the world.
As of now major use of bitcoin is just investment and trading.

But as time goes by now there are lot of merchants now are little by little starting to adopt the concepts features of bitcoin as mode of payment.
So with this things time will come that most business establishment all over the world will adopt the concepts of virtual currency. Therefore, were not oblige to tell people forcefully to believe in bitcoin as currency it is already depend on their principle and understanding about on this matter.

I know you do not like it but all of those that are using bitcoin as a way to invest or to trade are using it as a medium of exchange, they are using their bitcoin to buy other cryptocurrencies or to buy fiat with it, even fiat currencies that are so big and powerful are used for that so I really do not see anything wrong with it because that was bound to happen anyway.

For now, it is so hard to convinced people to used bitcoins as a medium of exchange because it is highly volatile and unpredictable. Perhaps, if this could be stabilize then that would the time they will considered it. It is also needs to be recognized by the government inorder for all transactions be legal since most people are afraid in illegal doings.
