In a recent report, it was predicted that the Bitcoin community will hit 5 million by 2019 and the world population will reach an estimated 7.5 billion by the same time. This translates to less than 1 percent of world population who will know about Bitcoin and its benefits, unless people are made aware of Bitcoin and its wonders.
Local Bitcoin communities across the world have created Meetup groups to engage local population, creating awareness about Bitcoin and how it can be used as an alternative to fiat currency. These groups are usually made up of entrepreneurs and bitcoin enthusiasts and they meet regularly to discuss about the future of the digital currency and also initiate the newcomers to it.
India, with over 7.5 billion people presents a great opportunity for bitcoin based businesses due to huge foreign remittance and unbanked adult population. The number of Bitcoin start-ups are gradually growing in the region with Coinsecure, Unocoin and Zebpay leading the way. In order to realise the potential of the region, it is important for the population to adopt Bitcoin which can happen only if there is enough awareness about it. These Bitcoin companies are doing their part of ensure it happens.
