I've seen/heard one individual mention it on a job specific type chat group. He said he didn't understand it, and that it made no sense. Nobody else was the least bit interested in it. This was in a group of about 100 people who are into computers and all things tech.

So I usually get pretty excited whenever I hear about people (non-nerds and non-tech savvy) discussing bitcoins. However, today I overhead two physicians talking about buying $300,000 worth of bitcoins in order to protect themselves from the devaluation of the USD. Now I know that $300,000 isn't really THAT much in terms of the bitcoin marketcap, but more importantly is that we may have some of the educated people of the USA start buying bitcoins soon. The mere fact they 1) knew of bitcoin and 2) are considering dumping a large amount of their fiat into it, is a REALLY good sign.

I remember 2 years ago I did not hear a single person in the public discussing bitcoins. 6-8 months ago I began hearing very few people discuss it in passing, usually only in regards to it's recent price increases, and now I'm hearing people discuss bitcoins on a 1-2x per week basis.

Mass Bitcoin adoption is coming....I hope you're all ready for it Cheesy


It might be kinda different for me since I am a girl, but I recently got excited when one of my friend's brother FINALLY somewhat understood what I was talking about when I told them about the antminers I bought and cryptocurrency. The whole concept of Bitcoins has made sooo much progress since I was first introduced to it a few years back. Back then I was able to mess around with it more since it was about $5/BITCOIN! Ahhh the days... if I only I knew back then what I did now  Undecided BTCBTCBTC

i don't know about more ppl discussing about bitcoin around me. Since i've never over heard ppl talking about it.
I've talked to many colleagues in my large company year plus ago, but no one is approaching/ have interest in buying.
They may appear interested but they have no interest in investing bitcoin.

Well it all starts with awareness that it exists first. Then the interesting leads to buying and using bitcoin, which then leads to merchant adoption and that feeds right back into the cycle. This is all progress.

Of course it will become to the point where Bitcoin is going mainstream, but we don't know what will that do to the market. Will it mean that the price will increase, everyone dumps their money into it, then have hackers jump in and destroy the value of Bitcoin due to it being mainstream?
