When I knew about bitcoin, it was about 10,000 USD. I started understanding how it emerged and how it works. I did (and still do) my best to promote bitcoin too (include my purchase of a branded bitcoin shirt). Though the increase of bitcoin between 2009 - 2019 is the biggest increase I've ever seen, nothing got me as weak as this (a thread Laszlo made on the 18th of may 2010)

Quote
I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day.  I like having left over pizza to nibble on later.  You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I'm aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don't have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a 'breakfast platter' at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you're happy!

I like things like onions, peppers, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni, etc.. just standard stuff no weird fish topping or anything like that.  I also like regular cheese pizzas which may be cheaper to prepare or otherwise acquire.

If you're interested please let me know and we can work out a deal.

Thanks,
Laszlo

Reading thought this, I felt somehow. First is because he was doing that just to promote the bitcoin. Second is that he offered 10,000 bitcoins for it. 😕
Since I went through that post, I've been feeling weird though I learnt something but....... That is touching 😔

I know that many people are focused on the 10,000 bitcoins (wishing they could get it) but then, let us ALWAYS PROMOTE BITCOIN.
Laszlo served as a very good example here by trying to use bitcoin (22/5/2010) to purchase pizza (and obviously, his goal was achieved as bitcoin is now used for purchase).  Let us all find a way to promote bitcoin! It is for "us"!

I dont think we still need to promote it. There are many services that you can use Bitcoin even paying your bills right now depends on the country  and they are many online store accepting bitcoin mode as payment . What kind of advertisment you still want to see?

With time we've been getting more and more services that accept bitcoin. More we promote more will be the growth of bitcoin, and now this is serving as an alternate to make transactions yet the usage isn't big as various centralized source that perform the same work. Only through continued promotion this can be attained, so everyone in the cryptocurrency market should set a target of introducing crypto to atleast ten new users.

If what you just said is what the person who introduced you to bitcoin said, then you wouldn't have known bitcoin. There's nothing like we don't need to promote it when it hasn't been fully adopted. We need to bring new people to this. Just like Romero said, we can fix a goal of introducing bitcoin to at least 10 new people. Imagine when each person in this bitcointalk forum bring 10 people, Just imagine how wild the fire would be.

It's really good but not necessary. Lots of promotions, spreading awareness, encouragement were already done in the past, by at least each of us. Other people saw the potential of getting involved in bitcoin. My friends saw what bitcoin gave to me. Bitcoin awareness here in our country improves year by year. Our famous local crypto exchange site involved in the payment process system bringing a big awareness of what bitcoin is.

But in the end, why others are still not taking part in the bitcoin community?

That's because it's not interesting to them no matter how good bitcoin is. It is fine for me as no need to force someone. Let them come on their own and if they are really serious they will seek guidance from us.

I think it is more on adoption, the more people will know Bitcoin, the more people will use it.
But for me, as time goes by, Bitcoin is spreading, day by day, there are new people being introduced to Bitcoin.

For my experience with this, asking some people or entities if they accept Bitcoin for their products or services is also one of the best ways of promoting Bitcoin.
Why? Because in that way, they will become curious about Bitcoin (if they don't know what is that thing), so that's the start of the story.
There are a lot of ways to promote Bitcoin like also holding some amount of Bitcoin is party promoting Bitcoin.

I won't agree thoroughly with this. Because in my country, people are not aware. Some haven't even heard the name bitcoin before. You don't know how many more people who are out there that just haven't heard of bitcoin. I'm sure you heard of Jesus. In fact, I'll say everyone has. That's the way I wish bitcoin is. Even if they don't believe in it, let them know about it. 🤷‍♂

We can increase the awareness if we will also promote the bitcoin. Speaking of promotion, I keep discussing the bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies to my friends and relatives. At first they did not give a care but when I show the earnings that I get from day trading, they started to see it as important. Through speaking, the awareness of other people about bitcoin can increase.

I think everybody has done it before when they found out about Bitcoin,
They would talk about it to their friends and family because they found out something new.
But most of the time we would only be ignored since they don't like it.

as investors you know there is a risk its not easy to convince people to invest just because you want them to addopt bitcoin.
Other than that what will be the benefit of the people who introduce btc to people if he only have a few coins.

yes you are right op we must always promote bitcoin so that more people know about bitcoin. we can directly promote bitcoin to our family, relatives and friends. with the increase in people who understand and use bitcoin, this will also encourage mass adoption. and with the increase in bitcoin users will have a positive impact on the price of bitcoin. now many stores and companies are willing to accept bitcoin as a means of payment.

I always do my best and try to explain BTC for people around me, it's hard because I don't want to influence anyone to buy/sell/trade BTC, but I explain the fundamentals, how it works and why BTC is good to us for the future
Some people start to buy BTC after some time, with small portions, and them the people are at their own

at this time without even being promoted bitcoin will be known to many people, when someone benefits from bitcoin, others will also follow in his footsteps without being told, but if you want to promote maybe it will be better, especially to dismiss negative prejudices about bitcoin, as we know many people who think bitcoin is a scam.

There is a risk in telling it to then, I did tell it to my family and friends and some did buy and apparently when BTC prize drops they blame me even I told them that price is volatile. Just explain them how risky it is and they will for sure not use it. People want easy money which is impossible in investing.

There are many ways we can promote Bitcoin and thus helping it to one day be truly mainstream. You see the biggest problem (at least to me, I guess) with the adoption of Bitcoin is that we are not actually creating a demand of it in our everyday lives all because majority of people who are into Bitcoin are just holders or the speculative type who will do everything possible so they will not use their Bitcoin to buy anything online or even offline. Had there been a critical number of people who are using Bitcoin everyday, a  wonderful economy can be created with Bitcoin as the currency and not just a store of value (though there is nothing wrong with that function, actually). In other words, using Bitcoin to buy anything can be one of the best and effective ways we are promoting Bitcoin. The problem is, we are not doing it.

Bitcoin was way more different in the past, at least in terms of value.  When Laszlo bought that iconic pizza, the price of Bitcoin was more or less zero. There was no transaction that uses and accepts Bitcoin and that particular pizza purchase became history because it was done as a starting point and as a strong statement that Bitcoin is now a currency.

Of course we should also explain to them the risks that they can take if they will make investment with bitcoin. If we will encourage them, we should make sure that they have prior information on what they can get. Promoting is good, as a bitcoin user; we should spread what we know about bitcoin in other people. Just make sure that we are spreading legit information.

I dont think we still need to promote it. There are many services that you can use Bitcoin even paying your bills right now depends on the country  and they are many online store accepting bitcoin mode as payment . What kind of advertisment you still want to see?
I don't know where you are from but there are still people who don't know much about bitcoin and most likely the few ones who have any knowledge about them see it as a fraudulent investment plan. So yeah, there is still the need to clear this negative and narrowed perception about bitcoin and also encouraging sellers to integrate the use of bitcoin as a payment method.

Basically, a simple question we ask for each store if tbey are offering bitcoin as payment is already a good way to promote bitcoins. We might have not much bitcoins with us, but when stores starts to accepts bitcoin as payment will impact demand greatly. Pizza is a great example of this great adverrisement, though the opposite which is to ask bitcoin for payment is also effective. It could definitely drive store owners to think of putting bitcoin to their systems.

This is the generation of internet and bitcoin has already been promoted many times on social media.
I think bitcoin already has all the fame it needed but the thing is that it has got a lot of negative promotion as well.
This is the main reason why bitcoin is not globally accepted yet. Only when people's perspective towards bitcoin changes, it will start mass adoption all over the world.
