As the world continues to usher in the era of cryptocurrencies, there still remain a number of key issues that need to be addressed in regards to the crypto domain. For starters, it was revealed in a statistical study that 46% of people (across some of the biggest cities in the world), were still not sure as to what currencies such as BitCoin, Ethereum actually were.
In addition to this, there still exists a tangible issue of bringing digital assets into the real world via the use of physical interfaces/ devices. Lastly, everyone realises that a complete shift to cryptocurrencies will take some time, and thus there needs to be a way to seamlessly exchange altcoins into fiat currencies and vice versa (for the time being).
