What if you were living in a country where your national currency was losing several % of value every day vs the US dollar (so everything was costing several % more every day), would you be so bothered about convenience then? I’m sure you’d be more concerned about your money retaining it’s value.
Absolutely — I agree.
I even wrote about this with Venezuela’s Crashing Bolivar and how the blockchain and cryptocurency is (IMHO) far superior to sovereign fiat currencies. However, interestingly enough we aren’t seeing widespread use of cryptocurrency in this country or others.
I am aware it is becoming more popular, but still we aren’t at the point (in time) where widespread adoption is ready for the masses. Hopefully soon.
