Bitcoin, the first and largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has many times been criticized due to some features that make it less efficient for payment.
Many crypto pundits believe that Bitcoin is best as a store of value rather than been used as a daily currency for instant payments.
In this regard, a crypto enthusiast identified on Twitter as Vannesa has shared four things she thinks Bitcoin must overcome before mass adoption of the digital currency can be expected. This afterward prompted the response from the DigiByte Awareness Team, the team that oversees marketing activities in DigiByte Blockchain.
This response buttressed that DigiByte (DGB) has in 6 years of its emergence solved the issues that Bitcoin has been struggling to solve since inception.
Four Things Bitcoin Must Overcome Before Adoption

She pointed at the time allocated to confirm Bitcoin transactions, which she said must be improved before the global adoption of the cryptocurrency can be expected.
She went further to point to multiple transaction issues that encompass Bitcoin transaction activities and the reduction of transaction fees when transaction volumes remain higher.
Conclusively, she mentioned that there should be a better decentralization of computing power on Bitcoin blockchain. She averred that all these shortcomings must be overcome to welcome the mass adoption of the digital currency.
She said, “4 Things Bitcoin must overcome before mass adoption 1. Improving time to confirm a transaction 2. supporting more transactions per sec. for BTC 3. reducing transaction fees when transaction volumes are higher 4. better decentralization of computing power on Bitcoin Blockchain”
