Adoption truly happens shen people do not know they are interacting with blockchain technology.

Take GET Protocol for example. The ticketing system used is o.much like its web2 counterparts, that you would never know you were interacting or relying on Blockchain and crypto to get your ticket.

It is easily accessible, user friendly and reliable. Adoption is not everyone sending bitcoin transfers. Adoption is a service being used whereby technology is used that people come to rely on.

The reality is very few projects have the goal of adoption, or even care about it. Technology should make a difference, and not isolate, it should solve problems and find better ways to do things.

Going back to GET Protocol, as an example, over 1.7million tickets have been sold through their protocol. I would estimate that over 90% of the people who have bought tickets through the protocol do not even know what they are using. That is massive!!!

  1. I agree. No one really knows what software their bank or whatever uses and 99.9% don’t care

    The benefits of blockchain can be behind closed doors and most people wont need to interact with it

  2. GET must be one of the most objectively solid low cap crypto investments.
    It has a real world use case, and has a proven record of daily use for something that people understand. It also solves actual problems.
    It’s low cap and hard to get, you need to go to sushi swap or uniswap (fees). Just getting listed on an exchange alone could make it pump.
    The team is legit, professional and communicates well. They actually have pretty good marketing. Check their youtube videos. It’s professionally produced stuff, not just some screen recorded interviews with crypto bloggers.
    It uses NFT technology (which is a good buzz for investors), yet doesn’t rely on selling JPGs (to themselves like most do lol).

    They are now creating a DAO, and I think we are also going to see some sort of staking and governance option. This might be the missing link for getting them on exchanges.

    BTW for people saying you don’t need NFTs for tickets, they do more than that. It’s aiming to become a complete ecosystem for (crowd-) funding events from the start.

  3. Love me some GET. Would love, even more, to see Ticketmaster and all their bullshit partners go down, too.

    In a similar vein, there’s another project doing much of the same (it’s not a ticketing company; it’s related to Minecraft) which I made a post about [here.](https://old.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/ubqx8e/integrating_minecraft_with_150_million_active/) Definitely another one to be aware of.

  4. I think a question that’s nice to put out is whether companies should advertise that they use Blockchain tech?

    Would Ubisoft Quartz be hated so much by gamers if they just said that ok we’re now letting people transfer your items back and forth with the ability to sell them on an official marketplace? Instead of saying heyooooooo NFTsssss brooooo. Not verbatim.

  5. Especially true in my case. I haven’t been interacting with any blockchain for the past month, due to lack of funds. But, I monitor the charts every few minutes. I have adopted it wholeheartedly, without interacting with it much.

  6. This. Grandma doesn’t know wallet addresses and blockchain and gas fees. She knows a standard web checkout UI and credit cards. The crypto tech doesn’t have to be front and center to make it absurdly useful and transformative in the background.

  7. Crypto is mostly known for gains, markets and treated like stocks for the common boomer out there. CEXs advertise the gains, most influx of articles is when btc skyrockets or when it plummets. This needs to change and emphasize into the tech.

  8. Yeah. Adoption will happen when things get easy. So long as things as things complicated, people will he all too happy to stay with the old ways

  9. This is why I am extremely bullish on the two upcoming usecases for Nano in the next couple of months. Two separate companies are building systems to use Nano as a payment rail to solve a real business problem and it will be completely seemless for the constumer. They won’t even know cryptocurrency is being utilized in the transaction.

    Both companies process billions in transactions yearly. Extremely excited.

  10. Then the $DIVI project may be the answer here. This was their goal from the start – bringing crypto seamlessly to the masses. Crypto made easy. They focus a lot on UI and user experience. One example: there is no need to deal with hash addresses anymore. The usual username / contacts list approach is used instead. Check their white paper:

    what’s the point of a blockchain back end for a system with multiple trusted 3rd parties?
