I think Bitcoin will take a little longer to reach the trust level average people have for VISA. No doubt there are obvious advantages Bitcoin has over VISA but I don't think public sentiment is quite there yet. I can say that with how quickly solutions are coming out that make Bitcoin easier to use that we can expect a lot more people coming on board sooner from perhaps niche communities. Bitcoin will be popular in certain areas where its most needed before it gets mainstream level adoption.Do you think in 2016 we will have Bitcoin respected as VISA and other more appreciated members of the financial sector? Seems to me that Bitcoin will be a 'real' currency when the average person can use it as their medium of exchange, and will in some way be less than until that time. Thanks!
great questions!Several questions if I may:
1) How did you become a fire dancer? (i.e. what was your inspiration, and how do you find someone to teach you?)
2) What are your thoughts on the current status of crypto-currencies as part of the liberty community/liberty movement?
3) What are your thoughts on the future of the liberty community/liberty movement?
4) Do you have a favorite Presidential candidate in the 2016 election (specifically from the candidates not in the two major parties)?
We have a few fans of our app in Ghana! I know BitUnit Ghana is throwing a cool event to raise awareness of Bitcoin there and we'd love to see this technology reach those who could benefit from it the most.Hi, thanks for your insights. Noticed on Facebook post that Airbitz is doing something with BTC Ghana. Could you explain the relationship or what is happening in Ghana? Thanks
Thank you so much for coming here!
Do you own any bitcoins? About how much part percentage of your assets is bitcoins?
How often per month or week do you use bitcoins for purchases?
What are your thoughts about the whole bitcoin scaling debate, particularly in relation to the social aspect?
What attracted you particularly to bitcoin in the beginning when you started becoming 'obsessed' with it?
What was the reason (or attraction) for starting to work with Airbitz?
I have a stealth address with Dark Wallet. When will people be able to send bitcoins to it from Airbitz?
I think the decision made by this Bitcoin startup was well informed and at an appropriate stage of development considering the growth we're experiencing. Community managers help communicate the fine details behind the awesome tech being developed and enhancing clarity is useful at any stage in the development of an organization.Why do you think that Bitcoin startups should have a community manger at this stage of their development?
Are diversity hires a good use of investor funds prior to a company achieving positive cash flow from paying customers?
Thanks Ronnie! I'd love to see wider adoption among women. The thing is, Bitcoin is not sexy, and that's okay. The way you appeal to women is similar to how you appeal to everyone else: you have to meet them where they are at and address their immediate needs. Those needs differ from individual to individual but one way is showing how Bitcoin helps them save from transaction fees and middle men if they are entrepreneurial. Another could be showing them the discounts they can get buy using certain services like Purse.io and showing how easy it is to buy a small amount of bitcoin through an app like Airbitz to experiment with. I'm very familiar with Bernays' tactics and hopefully Bitcoin isn't as destructive as cigarettes were! Driving women to adopt bitcoin requires that we view them as individuals with specific needs and address their concerns directly. This means we have to actively listen to valid concerns and view them in context--maybe there aren't enough incentives for people in developed countries to jump on board just yet. It's okay that adoption of this technology grows slowly and steadily. We've seen so many improvements in ease of use in the span of just a year, so practice patience and I am optimistic that the incentives for using bitcoin will expand.@M.K. Lords, thanks for all you do in the space. Enjoy your show and loved watching you a few times on Thomas' channel (sp)... World Crypto Network.
What can we do to make Bitcoin "much" sexy to woman, driving more women into the Bitcoin Ethos... getting more women on-board? Here's the deal, if women get on board, every guy on the planet will jump through fire to get Bitcoin. That's just how it is. Look at how many guys started reading 50 Shades or those Vampire trilogy books (I'm grasping at straws here on the second one because I can't remember which series is which) because the woman were all over it.
I think of how Edward Bernays, Freud's cousin, got woman to start smoking cigarettes (in masses) at a time when that was unheard of and thought of as completely inappropriate... he was responsible for a great many things.
What can we do to really drive women into Bitcoin?

You and me both sister!Thanks Ronnie! I'd love to see wider adoption among women.
LOL... I was worried about using Bernays as an example... wasn't sure who might call me out on some of his "tactics".I'm very familiar with Bernays' tactics and hopefully Bitcoin isn't as destructive as cigarettes were!
Agreed. I believe the hardest thing about Bitcoin is... waiting. LOL.It's okay that adoption of this technology grows slowly and steadily. We've seen so many improvements in ease of use in the span of just a year, so practice patience and I am optimistic that the incentives for using bitcoin will expand.
