The Need for Cryptocurrency Advocates


It is important for cryptocurrencies to be known in order for it to have a chance of growth. This is where advocates, evangelists and marketers need to come in. They are responsible for promoting a wider scale adoption and use of the cryptocurrency. Crypto's awareness and ownership is going up but still these are just mere drops in the ocean of cryptocurrency which is not truly enough for the industry to succeed.

What is a Cryptocurrency Advocate?

A traditional evangelist is an individual who goes into areas that has generally low densities of their religious faith and they attempt to convert as many of the people who live and work there. They are not dissimilar to a sort of religious, traveling salesperson. They go where they are needed to “spread the word.”

While I have neither the time nor the desire to comment on whether or not religions should be doing that sort of thing, I do think that Bitcoin can benefit from this sort of direct and targeted marketing of itself. An Advocate, then, is an individual who approaches businesses, communities, and individuals who may not necessarily be aware of or convinced by Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Whether it is a business looking to a secure payment solution, a marketing firm looking to bring itself into the digital era, or a local community center trying to teach some of its members more about computing and the Internet, Cryptocurrency Advocates are badly needed. A great way to look at it is by subtracting the percent of the population that knows about or owns a cryptocurrency, then see for yourself the vast expanses of opportunity.


HOW TO BE A CRYPTOCURRENCY EVANGELIST

So you want to do your part and help spread the word, but do not know exactly how to get started. Well it is not as daunting of a task as you may expect, but it is still an important one. You do not have to be the next Satoshi Nakamoto, Andreas Antonopoulos or Gavin Andresen to be able to bring crypto into people’s lives. You must arm yourself with answers to the common or frequently asked questions you are likely to hear.

One way that I like to disseminate information about cryptocurrency is via various workplace enrichment programs. Many offices and employers have something similar, and it may be worth exploring how you can teach a Cryptocurrency Beginners class. The first time I held a rather informal version of this at a workplace of mine, I was surprised by the turnout and engagement. Many people want to learn, but more than anything they want someone to teach them.

Similarly, community centers that offer computer classes, colleges whose departments are searching for a speaker, and various other meetup groups may be keen to have an advocate like you to come and speak to them about the future of currency.

What I mean to say here is that you do not need to be the most knowledgeable about FinTech or the code behind cryptos themselves, people just need to understand the basics of how cryptos works and how to use it. However, you do need to put in the effort to help grow this community and push this currency into wider adoption. We need more Cryptocurrency Evangelists and Advocates.

In order to be one is to own one and start with what you already have. It doesn't have to Bitcoin. It could be Bitshares, Cryptoceeds, Compuceeds, BTCPLUS, Oceania, Eload or even the Galleon. All of which are traded on the Bitshares Wallet which also serves as a Decentralized Exchange and Blockchain powered by Graphene Technology. Everybody is selling the numbers on their screens as long as it is kept secure on a blockchain. Go prosper yourself in the process, you deserve it.
