How can non-technical people adopt bitcoin? Would Bitcoin have worked if it had been introduced five or ten years earlier?

These questions are from the August monthly Q&A session for patrons, and the fourth and fifth sessions of MOOC 12, which took place on August 24th, October 4th and October 11th respectively. If you want early-access to talks and a chance to participate in the monthly live Q&As with Andreas, become a patron:
