How does bitcoin work and why are there so many different ones?
My dads a financial advisor and he sat down with his coworkers and for 6 hours they talked and couldn’t understand it, and as time goes on i feel like its going to become more reliable, so how does it work?
I'm pretty new to this stuff, and honestly i have no idea how it works yet.. i would like to "get into" Bitcoin and learn how to use it and how it works etc. Because i would like to order some things that can only paid with/by Bitcoin. If someone could explain to me how to it works, i would really appreciate that! I don't want to jump right into it just by myself, because i really don't want to mess things up.
You're in an elevator with half a minute to spare, and someone asks you "So, how does Bitcoin work?". What would you answer?
EDIT: Great answers everyone! It's cool to see how others do it, and I'm sure I learned a couple of new things here too. Some really good (and funny) answers here! That being said, I'm choosing mperklin as the winner :) Need your address man, so I can send those bits over! EDIT2: Sent! Best answer (could be the most upvoted, but still ultimately my discretion) gets 10 mBTC (.01 BTC). Time frame is 24 hours from the time of this posting. Let's hear those elevator pitches! One of my go-to answers would be: Remember when we used to have cross-border mail and international phone calls? We had to go through middlemen like long distance phone operators and post offices, and pay extra to do so, right? The internet changed all that. Now, we still have cross-border payments and money transfers, right? Going through middlemen like banks and Western Union, paying extra to so? Bitcoin changes all that in the same exact way.
