In the early history of computers, many people distrusted this new technology because they viewed computers as the tools of the oppressor (giant corporations like IBM and vaguely menacing government agencies like FBI). Once the personal computer came into existence, and access to computer power was decentralized (democratized), then things changed. Perhaps it's the same with blockchain and cryptocurrency. These two words are actually kind of cryptic sounding and somewhat creepy. It doesn't help that they are also difficult to explain in non-technical terms. They sound like something cooked up by shadowy figures in an underground bunker. Once people realize all the personalized (and decentralized) options available in the crypto-sphere, then they'll be more likely to adopt the technology. In other words, the idea and practice of blockchain technology needs to be made more user friendly.
