Looking for your thoughts on explaining Bitcoin to the average person...
I've been in Bitcoin since around July of 2020. Since then I've been in hyper focus mode learning everything I can. I spend between a half hour and 4+ hours a day learning about it. To say I've become a maxi is an understatement.
I don't evangelize, I generally don't speak about Bitcoin unless asked and even then I'm vague and mostly quiet. But I do anticipate a time when family wants a real explanation. Not that they'd turn to me, but I would like to be the one to provide the information.
I've read almost every Bitcoin book out there. In the case of The Bitcoin Standard, Money You Can't F**k With, The 7th Property, Inventing Bitcoin, and many others - I've read them a half dozen times each. I get it. I understand it. But my working memory is dogshit.
My problem is I have what my therapist described as "severe ADHD" 15 minutes into meeting me in my mid 20s. I have a lot of knowledge in my mind but it has to be pulled out in specific ways. I'm better at adding to a conversation than leading it. I'm not good at wrapping complexity in a succinct box and slapping a bow on it.
Enough rambling. My question is how would you give a (relatively) succinct explanation of what Bitcoin is, and how it works, to someone who knows nothing? So that the individual feels they have a grasp on what this technology is, and means?
I'd give my explanation here but I do pretty well in writing. I'm looking for something that would be easy to say out loud to a group of like 6, semi, receptive people. I could ask chat gpt but I'd love advice from other Bitcoiners. Thanks in advance.
