Depending on where you live in this world I am sure that a lot of you also received the same reaction from people near to you.
The biggest factor that causes this negative reaction is the fact that all these people don’t have the necessary knowledge to talk about this new technology and to create a strong opinion about it. That’s totally understandable.

If you google bitcoin, you will find a lot of explanations. Some are quite decent, but the biggest part are too technically or too detailed. That’s why so many people don’t understand what it’s actually about. If I tell my father that bitcoin is network money that is decentralized and open source, he will respond this is only for very smart and wealthy people as lawyers, stockbrokers, bankers and certainly not for normal people as him.
We can do better than this. Let’s use the same language as you and me to guide people through this new exciting future.
