It’s no good explaining Bitcoin with similes or indeed metaphors I DON’T UNDERSTAND. But yes, Old Fashioneds are the best.

Blah blah blah gold.
Blah blah (Fidelius charm, nuff said)
Blah blah.
World wide blah blah blah.
Blah blah blah power.
Blah maths.

Ok, I’m going to stop you right there. ‘Imagine money is like alcohol?’ What exactly are you implying, Mr Bitcoin-Is-meths-and-that’s-clearly-the-only-way-to-get-through-to-this-dumb-fantasy-author?

I’m sure cryptocurrencies are fascinating. I’ve genuinely tried to grasp the very detailed information I’ve been sent tonight (people close to me understand it & have tried to explain it when I’m stone cold sober), but I’m afraid this is a total blind spot to me. 1/2

I’m just about able to grasp a barter system. Talk of collectibles, tokenomics and blockchains and my brain just takes a walk. 🤷🏻‍♀️
