The importance of the Crypto aha moment

I live in the USA and I started 2014 with Cryptos but more as a bystander and observer. It was 2016 when I started working full-time in this industry. As many of us, I suffer every time something negative is mentioned: a maximalist throws up with some stupid arguments, the press pretends to find the 1228th negative point to Bitcoin, a professor or politician saying: “it will never happen”, a friend smiling and telling you “you are wasting your time”. And we then all gather together around our influencers that will tell us: “it is all going to be great”.

Most of my time I have to deal with serious business people or high-ranking politicians and one of the big problems I see: people don’t understand cryptos. Even if you explain to them how things work and what it is all about, they don’t get it. In my environment there is nobody that is willing to invest time to understand cryptos better, but everybody is of the opinion that “this is the future”. I can try to explain to them from any angle (investment: bull market is coming, or it is about the technology) and they all smile back at me and continue in their own world. I can explain it many times, I can guide them through the process. Nothing. A week later they are back to square one. So, what is the problem?

Education?

Adoption?

Volatility?

Progress?

Global and mostly unregulated?

The missing Aha-moment?
