One was my younger brother, A 28 year old that finally got a career paying him decent and is ready to gamble on the future and dive into crypto and invest in a few other things. I told him to mine crypto in Dec 13' because he also had a good video card, but he didn't want to mess with the technology and learning it because he was being lazy. He was too busy playing games. Now he wished he'd gotten some when I told him too but didn't. I sent him $5 to show him how it worked because he was about to buy some. Once he downloaded the wallet, I took his phone, scanned it, and had funds in his wallet in seconds. He was amazed with the speed.
The second was a buddy of mine that gambled on Doge with me in Dec 13' but had never touched a coin or downloaded a wallet. He's not real tech savvy but understands some and does understand some of the crypto, as we've talked about it a lot over the years. I sent him money in seconds after he downloaded a mobile wallet. He was actually surprised how quick it was.
The third was another guy that walked in while I was sending the second guy funds and talking about it. We talked to him for a few minutes and he was intrigued (not tech savvy at all and would just assume not have a cell phone) about the technology because he doesn't trust banks and other third parties with his money. He'll be ready to make the leap soon. Once we make it easier for people like this to get funds to safe wallets that they hold physically and trust, crypto will be adopted much quicker.
I did, of course, school them on mobile/core wallets and security a bit so they understand not to keep a lot on things like mobile wallets or online exchanges with lots of value in them.
Just thought I'd share some positive stories for mass adoption. Hope everyone else is showing people. Usage is value.
