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

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 )
