Oh man...you don't? LOL.

What's funny is that my grandma was the branch manager of a bank for like 30 years, but she knows nothing about computers, so I have no idea how things would go if I tried to explain Bitcoin to her.

Tips are appreciated (very tiny tips are perfectly okay!) 13gDRynPfLH3NNAz3nVyU3k3mYVcfeiQuF

Hey, it's digital money the government can't cheat you out of! Now, who's selling vodka for bitcoins? Cheesy

I'd say its "internet money".

A gross oversimplification, to be sure, but still has the right core pieces. Or maybe "Cash without the mass." (I suppose you could add up all the electrons mass that a single bitcoin needs to be represented in binary, but I'm not about to take that on Smiley )
