Its gonna be a tedious task explaining such technology to them. But if taught gradually i believe they will catch up.

I really didnt have that much difficulty explaining bitcoin to my son (13 years old) because he is into computers and it just took him a bit to relate. But the problem I got with him is that he is not that interested in it yet, probably because he is not really thinking he'll earn a lot of money with it. But I think eventually, he'll follow my footstep.

it's simply as for me Cool i talked about btc with my mom. so my explanation is like: there is some task that computer can solve, but to make it, much processing power should be engaged. so once the task is solved you get the reward, which is called bitcoin.
there's no need to explain cryptography. tjis currency is just exist. not all people who have btc understand how it works, beleive me Wink and i think that the name of creator deserved to be given. for general information. Smiley

These day kids were much attached to the technology. So, making them know about it as well using those things in reality seems simple if they're interested. Same time we should not force them that they should know about it, because rather than insisting its good to suggest them. They need to be given the space to pick upon their willing.

It is true that the kids are getting attached to the technology but they are not old enough to be attached or included in making money in bitcoin because the bitcoin is complicated for the kids since they can get bored and distracted because of the studies that they need to do in school and also the works that they need to do also in bitcoin.

Once your audience is children and teens. It is better that you should inform them what is electronic currency or cryptocurrency all about. Educating them all about bitcoin gives them a bright future even though they are young; they can make some easiest way to earn without exerting too much effort

Bitcoin is online money. I don't think you should explaining bitcoin to kids before explaining to them how money work and what money really is.bitcoin explain to teenagers. But I think the easiest way you can explain to anybody at any age to using a video. They can also see in YouTube and know about it.

Not only teenagers and children but also old people as our parents. It is really hard to find a good explanation for these people. Bitcoin not easy to understanding like money or gold. I think the best way to make them understand is make them research about bitcoin by themselve and know advantages of bitcoin, and know that everything government told them was totally lies.

Bitcoin is difficult to explain for teenagers and children. I think giving children the knowledge of bitcoin should be done slowly so that the child understands well what bitcoin is.

For me it’s better that to inform the children and the teenagers about cryptocurrency or electronic currency; since they are the hope and asset of the future. Educating the childrens and teenagers gives them an assurance that they have a basic knowledge about cryptocurreny. Through this they can be enlighten and knowledgeable enough in concept of the system of bitcoin. At their young age they can make some ways to earn money without exerting too much effort for it; since they know all exact and necessary details about the electronic currency.

It all depends on the level of preparation of the one to whom you explain. I think children should not delve into the technical details of the protocol. Just explain the essence of the phenomenon. As you understand it yourself.

children doesn't need to know about currency,but teenagers does,and i think there's so many explanation video in youtube so don't wasting effort wasting your time when you can just give them about the link of video so they can learn from it,whether they will be interested or not,it's definitely depend on them

I agree. What's the sense of explaining it to a child when they won't really have any use for it. I think that's why economics as subject is not seriously taught to children only in the senior high school or even at college level. On the one hand, since the topic asks, I think the best way to explain is by analogy of things that most children are interested in. Also, you can start by explaining the good things that bitcoin could bring and not just the concept as is.

Bitcoin is difficult to explain. I also felt difficulties in understanding bitcoin for the firs time. Let's share how to explain bitcoin to children of teenagers. In My country I can say 98% children don't know bitcoin. In fact, bitcoin can be future money. If the children not familiar with cryptocurrency or bitcoin, how can they face the digital era in the future.

If and ever a time comes that a child or a teen really needs to learn about it for some reason. I think the best way to make them interested to actually listen is by using analogies, the things that basically interest a child or a teen. In the discussion, you can focus on the benefits and the good things that it can carry for the them instead of discussing the raw concept of it because if it will be discussed with technicalities, I think even an adult who is not interested won't listen.

It is much more difficult to explane bitcoin to an teenagers or children. If you explane the intire bitcoin he/she probably difficult to understand to a children but for teenagers it slighly difficult because now a days teenagers are now millenials they are new generation they could easily understand in terms of gadgets or online.
But for children there is another way to explane to them. I will say that in my way it just like a call center agent but in a defferent way we didn't call we just need to post and reply the questions.

Technology is constantly evolving. You just need to show the children how simple it is. Parents and teachers should explain them what it is and how it works.

I think .. Bitcoin can be difficult to explain but so can money and what teenager really knows how that works, hell most people don't know how money really works.
I think a teenager would probably be the easiest generation to teach bitcoin to, you don't need to teach them the whole in's and out's just a bit about public/private key pairs, sending/receiving addresses and secure coin holding and they will pick up the rest very quickly.

As long as adults are hard to understand about bitcoin what to say about children ... But I think there are people preoccupied to make videos easy to understand by children. In time can become an object of study in school.

Teenage is the best time to learn things about bitcoin. Because there is energy and eagerness to know new things. But for my children I won't described about bitcoin because maybe it's not yet the perfect time. But, at some point they will know money, the currencies and then economics. Teenagers are smart enough to understand bitcoin. Bitcoin is money a type of digital currency which can be converted into any currency in the world.

We need not think that far because young children certainly do not understand bitcoin.
 And if we tell bitcoin sure they are also difficult to understand. If we tell adults about bitcoin would be easy to understand because they would be interested because they would think of the benefits.
