I’ve been talking about bitcoin and the blockchain to pretty much everyone I meet these days. The biggest hump, though, is getting people who aren’t familiar with it to understand what the heck the blockchain is.
It’s the same deal, I imagine, when the Internet was going through its own growing pains. It took a while for people to understand why it was such a huge deal.
Fortunately, as you’ll see in a moment, there’s a very simple way to understand — and talk about — the blockchain. Get people to understand how the blockchain would work without technology involved, and that usually does the trick.
