Talking to Erik Voorhees CEO of ShapeShift has given us a quite a bit of idea of what mass adoption of Bitcoin really is. According to him, mass adoption needs to be specified in terms of usage. For Eric mass adoption as a store of value is quite different from mass adoption as a payment method which is then different from mass adoption of smart contracts or NFTs or also known as non-fungible tokens. According to him though a lot of Americans have at least heard or aware of Bitcoin rarely Americans have used Bitcoin as a store of value or as a payment method or as a smart contract or as a non-fungible token. According to Joshua Ashley Klayman head of Fintech and blockchain at Linklater LLP a US-based company mass adoption of Bitcoin would not be a source of news and people and individual will be willing to use the Cryptocurrency in their day to day affair.
