Most People Are Too Busy for Bitcoin – #GM39

GM Bitcoiners,

The same thing that allowed Bitcoin to grow undetected for so long is the same thing that prevents many from seeing the benefits of this world-changing technology. 


Most people pay no attention to Bitcoin beyond the occasional story that hits the mainstream media. 

It’s not because they’re ‘haters’, or unintelligent. 

They’re just busy. 

They have 1000s of emails. 

Compounding social media videos, posts and trends. 

20 Audible books they still haven’t listened to.

Kids, work, news… the list goes on. 

New coiners can be one influencer away from going down the wrong rabbit hole, but constantly bugging these people about Bitcoin won’t work and they often won’t thank you.

You’re better off waiting for Bitcoin to become a higher priority on their list, when it does manage to get their attention, they will come to you knowing you won’t be pushy. 

Other than people approaching you and asking questions, another good way to help others understand Bitcoin is by bringing it up when it’s linked to something happening in their life or in the broader world/mainstream news…

Otherwise, let them connect the dots. You’re better off leaving breadcrumbs.

When they do eventually come to you asking where to buy Bitcoin, you can save them a lot of time by sending them to a Bitcoin-only exchange. 

No distractions. 

No meme coins. 

No ‘yield farming’.

Just a Bitcoin-focused service that requires users to take custody of their coins. That’s where we can help at FastBitcoins
