So today I mentioned Bitcoin to my friend. He responded immediately "You shouldn't do that on the school's network, the FBI will get you. Anyway, wasn't that banished a year ago?"

How can I tell people the truth in less than a couple minutes? What should I say if I am confronted with this again? What is the easiest, fastest way to explain Bitcoin to a commoner?

He actually said "banished". This is a pretty smart kid who I would not have expected to say something like that.
How did Bitcoin even acquire this connotation, anyway?
