The use and adoption of cryptocurrencies has been growing constantly over the past few years. However, there are still some obstacles that prevent digital currencies from going fully mainstream. One of these obstacles is the lack of general knowledge about how the blockchain works and the potential that blockchain technology holds. Add this to the fact that lots of potential users struggle to believe that an online wallet can actually be very secure. These 2 points along with the constant dark cloud of regulatory crackdowns paint a picture of why cryptocurrencies have not been widely adopted even though they hold so many advantages over traditional systems.
