Bitcoin 101 – What is Bitcoin?

(A fully rewritten introductory video).

Having trouble understanding Bitcoin? Well, even Bitcoin’s anonymous developer, Satoshi Nakamoto, commented on how difficult it is to explain Bitcoin to a beginner.

But we’ve been teaching Bitcoin for over a year now and we’re starting to figure it out. This video is the result of a talk we did at Harvard University in April 2014 for Bitcoin beginners. Many of them mentioned that this talk helped them to finally understood the basic idea and we hope it works for you too. Even better, it is a story, covering the failures and difficulties of creating a digital currency, so for non-techies it is more accesible as well.
