I dont think theres any problem with bitcoin at all. Thats what makes it so great.
The current problem might be that it's directly associated to drug/weapon trade in the eyes of the Common Joe.

Well the Common Joe have loads of reasons to move away from bitcoins.
Mostly with information they got from the newspapers and newsstations.
Drugs and weapons
Criminals
Hackers
Nerds

that's what most common people relate to when they hear bitcoins
So we should solve the problems ahead of us.

Of course it can be applied to real money, that's what's so silly. But headlines about the devil currency sell more copies than "The currency of the future?"

I think another problem is, that it's using alot of electricity, that is bad for the world.
Especially when alot more people are going to mine it, I mean it's already gettin more every day.
Maybe one of the eco friendly coins are a help with that, or bitcoin could implement something to reduce electricity use.

Okay, we build a device to turn the excess heat into electricity and using experimental "grounding" technology we funnel this electricity into the Earth to combat AGW.

I think I've covered all my green bases. Where do I collect my government grant funds?

Got to go, trying to think like a politician has giving me a headache.

Greener energy is a must for the world not just bitcoin. Would be nice to see solar powerd miners though.

It removes all of the problems Rothschild and Friends created to keep us under their foot.  Why would we want to be free from debt slavery guys?  Why would we want to remove global poverty?  Why would we want to stop the fracking in the states?  Why would we want to question GMO'S?  How is Jacob Rothschild suppose to get his 78th Castle if everyone gets paid a proper wage?  THINK ABOUT THE ROTHSCHILDS GUYS! If BTC continues they might lose their ability to loan money out of thin air how terrible that would be.

Damn it, hadn't thought about this. I'm so selfish...
I'll donate one whole satoshi to them, to compensate for the terrible upcoming losses.

The problem with Bitcoin is we need a hipster brand slogan, a marketing campaign, an appealing method to arouse more curiosity.  We need exposure.  Positive exposure.  Yes, modern media only focuses on the negative aspects of life, hence the constant news of arrests, crashes, people killed, war, etc.  We need some flower power, ladies and gents.

I agree with you! .. And I already said this in here every person should talk to the people that he knew about the positive things Bitcoin

At the moment I think the biggest problem with btc is that not many people accept it so its limited as a currency.

The only problem with Bitcoin is that most people aren't intelligent enough to realize what this technology is. If that weren't the case, fiat would already be worthless.
how can we fix this?
Even the governments in many countries don't recognise BTC and ban it. How can we accept this new things as normal person?

Well, you can apply a lot of the negatives of a HORSE to CARS in the same way but the advantages of a car outweigh the negatives.

You have to convince the common joe that bitcoin is the car and money is the horse. The advantage of bitcoin over money is the limited supply. Is that enough?

Every time someone points out something wrong with bitcoin, the first line of defense is - fiat has the same problem. Well, if bitcoin has the same problems as fiat then why bother?

Instead of repeating the same thing over and over like a broken record, you all should push the advantages of bitcoin and see if that is really what the common joes want.

Stop governments from meddling in power generation and you get cheaper power. Innovation can make it cheaper and cleaner.

I don't remember who said it but I always thought this quote was really applicable to the our mass media:
"a lie is half way around the globe before the truth is even out of bed."

It's a good quote indeed, the headlines that sell aren't necessarily true. Wink
