“How are we going to get widespread, real crypto adoption?”
This question has been the subject of countless conversations, at Meetups, conferences, and if we had to guess over 94,483 Twitter debates.
Let us now preface this by stating we are not claiming to have the answer, but think we are on the right track to getting to something that works.
There are two clear problems:
According to eMarketer in 2018 Amazon.com processed $258.22B in revenue within the USA accounting for 49.1% of all eCommerce transactions. As of the day this article is written thats more sales than the entire crypto currency market cap.
Let’s employ some deductive reasoning and assume that 60% of all individuals within the USA & Canada that are in crypto are already patrons of Amazon. If we are going with that assumption then let’s ask a question:
Q: Why would Amazon accept crypto if customers are willing to pay in FIAT?
A: They won't due to opportunity cost.
In other words the work vs. potential reward is not clear or present. This is not just true for Amazon but for many merchants. Accepting crypto is a nice to have but is seldom a deal breaker for anyone who was already going to purchase.
Let's take that example one step further and say you are holding Enjin ($ENJ), and want to buy a set of slippers, Spider Man action figure, and yoga mat on Amazon with your profits. The process to get liquidity to be able to make this a reality is as follows:
Would you opt to pay with crypto and jump through the hoops or just whip out your credit card?
