‘Real sector’ and IT…
When we were engaged in IT outsourcing, our team cooperated with many clients from the so-called real sector. Those people had a poor understanding of what we are doing, but they really wanted to be a part of the Internet business. Our projects were quite costly because the team wanted to have a good motivation and to be confident in the final implementation of the project. Some partners accepted this fact, others found cheaper options (meaning that the team they were cooperating with did not have an office or hired students). And we always had a position that as soon as the client will be disappointed in the cheaper option, he will start cooperating with us.
But after spending money on the cheap and low-quality projects that eventually did not work out, the client returned back to the real sector. He spread the stories that business on the Internet does not exist.
So, the current situation with Bitcoin is exactly the same!
