    Sorry. My mistake. Yes, I meant under $4000.

    Not a fan of crypto-currencies myself. The thing is they will probably remain a hype. People who should regulate do not have the necessary knowledge to do so (yes, as it happens in gaming!). In any case, why hasn't crypto taken over Fiat yet? When email came about everybody switched to email. Same with flat monitors, optical mice, cloud computing, and so on. The point is, when a technology is good, people will start using it to the point it becomes mainstream. Has there been any time where a technology took so long before it became widespread?

    Your logic is, quite frankly, terrible. Let me counter. Just this week I:

    1) Sent a physical letter via the post office. As such, not everyone has switched to email, even decades later.
    2) Used my CRT monitor, which I use daily as a matter of fact. As such, not everyone has switched to flat screen monitors.
    3) Used my track ball mouse. As such, not everyone has switched to optical mice.
    4) Not used a cloud computing product. Never have, example invalid.

    The point is technology adoption is not what you purport it to be. Far from it. And using this as an attack on Bitcoin not having displaced all entrenched fiat currency in a mere decade is foolishness at best, and bullshit logic at worst

    "Has there been any time where a technology took so long before it became widespread?"

    The problem is, that Bitcoin is the cancer in the crypto world. As Oren pointed out, Blockchain is the future, and this is very good, but as long as Bitcoin, in the meantine the #1 crime tool on the internet, is not finally imploded and wiped off the crypto-map, as long Blockchain cannot develop freely. Without this cancer, the technology will become widespread within a short period of time in my opinion.

    The problem are also the desperate Bitcoin pusher, also here on GPWA. One week ago you could find everywhere - also here on GPWA - deceiving rallying calls.

    Now, one week later the demise of Bitcoin continues. The bubble is now below $3,4XX.
    Not even 20% left from the price last Christmas, when pushers made uninformed newbies believe, they get rich very soon.

    And also an actual example for the massive crime in the crypto-world:

    Malta, proven a gaming Mafia paradise, where you can get away even with murder (Assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia), now issued a warning about one of their own homemade crime factories, originalcrypto.com.

    After earlier in this year the corrupt Malta government approved the "Malta Digital Innovation Authority Bill", "Technology Arrangements and Services Bill" and finally the "Virtual Financial Assets Bill", they installed a free-ticket for criminals and the already successful acting Bitcoin Mafia with respect to money laundering on a large scale. Also a fact, but almost everyone remains silent about that.

    I never talked to anyone Amish before, this is my first time.

    Ok, so you want to be exact, I used the word 'everybody' and you attacked on that saying that some people still use old technologies. Why don't you instead admit that people like you are just a tiny percentage and that the technologies I mentioned are the de-facto standard of today adopted by the vast majority? To any reader, that is the point I made.

    Let's also say that a decade is not enough for a technology to become mainstream (which is actually ample time!). Crypto currencies use is negligible, people simply are not using it in their daily needs, and after all these years in existence, this is extremely disappointing.

    If you like, leave me a postal address, and we'll communicate further by post; and use your quill to write your bullshit ideas.

    Because what you stated is untrue/a falsehood.

    Calling me "Amish" does not change the fact that your information and assumptions are grossly incorrect.
