Education as Key Driver of Adoption in the Crypto Space
During a panel session at the Crypto Assets Conference in Frankfurt, Moritz Schildt from the Hanseatic Blockchain Institute e.V., Andreas Traum from PWC Deutschland, Arno Pernthaler from DEC Institute, Michael Wild from Binance, and Maria Eneva-Olms from EkoLance discussed the various roles education plays in the wider adoption of cryptocurrencies.
The first discussion point was around the reasons people give for not joining the blockchain space. Michael Wild pointed out that some people think crypto is a fraud. From the institutional angle, he believes regulation has played a significant role. If we invest more in educating the masses, more people will begin to see the real-life use cases of cryptocurrencies beyond Bitcoin.
“The key obstacle to mass adoption is that people don't see the relevance. They don't see the business or use cases of blockchain” — Maria Eneva-Olms, CEO at EkoLance.
