An International Bitcoin Day might just be the right thing to add to our modern day calendar. Of the few 365 days that we have in a year, the number of days dedicated to different causes only keeps increasing. International Bitcoin Day is not one among them. It is rather a genuine call for support to spread awareness and increase adoption of this fascinating digital currency. Before delving deeper into the specifics of the International Bitcoin Day campaign, we need to appreciate the relevance of this marketing campaign that has an activistic twist to it.
Question: What is the greatest hurdle to the adoption of Bitcoin?
Answer: The greatest hurdle is to get a new (read Non-Bitcoin) user to get understand Bitcoin.
But when people get past this hurdle, it is mostly certain that they will continue to keep those Bitcoin, and may be even use it. The larger question that’s looming now is this — how do we get more people to try Bitcoin? The answer to this question is a challenge, which forms the core of this campaign.
The International Bitcoin day is all about answering this single question — “What if everyone in the world used Bitcoin for a day?” May be too big, may be too ambitious, but so is the Bitcoin — ambitious, big and disruptive by design.
