Finally I got my wife over the hurdle... She wants to invest some FIAT in Steem.
So what happens? I get her to make a bitpanda account to buy some BTC and LTC which works fine.
The BTC goes to the celsius network and is earning its interest as it is supposed to do.
The LTC goes to Binance and There I want to buy steem
wallet maintenance, deposit and withdrawal suspended
I have been convincing her of the ease of the way things are getting and how much smoother the crypto integration is becoming.
This does not help our case. If my wife who is a in contact with al the positive aspects of Steem regularly is so easily discouraged. She knows the apps and the games and the evolution because being married to a diehard Steemian you have to know this. Even the #NEWSTEEM movement is a small step but no more than that.
Then imagine how someone new will see this.
This was something that opened my eyes a bit and still shows how far away from mainstream we are. The whole key thing is hard to explain especially with all the features from the "freemium internet" like password recovery.
Personally I am convinced of the future of what we are building towards but I just realised that it will take a bit longer then I had originally assumed. I just added a few years to my estimate for more adoption.
I am convinced the movement will grow but I would say there will be no bigger adoption before 2025.
What do you guys think?
