Still far from adoption: My neighbor never heard of Crypto, and our babysitter just said, “Bitcoin is illegal in the US”

Yes, she actually said that.I understand if someone never heard of Crypto Currency. After all our neighbor is in his late 50s .Seriously though, on my way out our baby sitter overheard my wife and I talking about Bitcoin . that’s when she said it was illegal.She was dead serious about it. Before I can explain that it wasn’t she insisted …”You can get in alot of trouble doing that stuff, I was watching this documentary on it a while back”I showed her a CNBC news clip talking about BTC , then showed her how you can buy bullion with BTC. She quickly nodded her head…well I don’t know, I heard it was illegal, and the government is cracking down on it”ME: when did they say that?HER: Just recently they said all over the news of strict regulationsI came to a conclusion this is some sort of confirmation biasm that maybe she got it all in her head. She probably watch some anti Bitcoin video years ago, and whenever she hears “regulation” or “government cracking down on illegal transactions with crypto” she thinks “yup, its probably illegal”She’s not dumb either . just blinded.This is the problem with following the system people have a preconception if something is officially approved by a credible source like NY times that it must not be legit.This is how we were raised as children we were raised to believe that you should trust the government and they’re there to protect you when the truth is… Government officials, agencies, police departments, mayors have all been involved in corruption scandals .The government has a very long history of dirty doings. However none of this is discussed in our Common Core school system. You have to find all this out for yourself.We grow up being taught that the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus is real. Christopher Columbus discovered America.Its a dam shame.So I browse through my friends list on Facebook about 600 people. Turns out only about 10 are talking about Crypto.But I like this because that just means if 10% of the people on my Facebook friends list are talkin about crypto that’s six times the amount.Maybe that means 6 times the market cap. I’m happy with 10%Peace

Seriously though, on my way out our baby sitter overheard my wife and I talking about Bitcoin . that's when she said it was illegal.

She was dead serious about it. Before I can explain that it wasn't she insisted …

"You can get in alot of trouble doing that stuff, I was watching this documentary on it a while back"

I showed her a CNBC news clip talking about BTC , then showed her how you can buy bullion with BTC. She quickly nodded her head…

ME: when did they say that?

HER: Just recently they said all over the news of strict regulations

This is the problem with following the system people have a preconception if something is officially approved by a credible source like NY times that it must not be legit.

This is how we were raised as children we were raised to believe that you should trust the government and they're there to protect you when the truth is… Government officials, agencies, police departments, mayors have all been involved in corruption scandals .

Its a dam shame.
