As a friend of mine commented: "First people have to care enough to want to
use crypto before they start worrying about how easy to use it is or how well
integrated it may be. It's like my friends who like hedgehogs: They're spikey
and are weird but if you like them, they're cute."
Along with the hedgehogs, there are the echidna and porcupine as
options. Maybe even a honey badger :-)
My suggestion was inanimate: Reynolds, the tin-foil hat (or cap).
