You can buy drugs with it, pay people under the table, buy cash, gift cards to the stores, etc Pretty sure it could infiltrate a good portion of society IFF it is truly useful. Imagine a cashless society where every transaction is traced by LEOs... I'd be fucking ecstatic to be paid in illegal secret money.
I think Monero may act as some sort of "rot" to the modern industrial
society, creating an environment that favors small decentralizated communities that work together.
Thats an interesting theme. Perhaps the big businesses would hurt the most. Or would it make it more universally payable on a global scale?
Thats a big if, most people are idiots and getting them to switch would be tough. I think the federal Reserve will win the battle with cryptocurrency personally. I see monero as too good for society. Things that are too good in society dont usually make it they die like Jesus.
Its not about intelligence, the issue is it needs to benefit people: not be powered by some ideological stuff.
IFF monero takes hold and allows people to interact without the fear of needing a CPA. Or paying a total of like 40% of their income in various forms of tax, they would install an android wallet.
The hard part is figuring out a critical mass: drugs are a great option, they link to other parts of society and such services who cater to those users, might adopt it and find their own benefits. I.e glass pipe makers, hydroponic ans grow light supply companies, etc
