Bitcoin Q&A: Explain Bitcoin to my mother?


Could you explain what Bitcoin is in a non-technical way that my mother / father / grandparents could understand?

This question is from the (rescheduled) April Patreon Q&A session, which took place on May 5th 2018. If you want early-access to talks and a chance to participate in the monthly live Q&As with Andreas, become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/aantonop

Note: No offense intended to the all the Bitcoin mums around the world who need no explanation for how this technology works or why it matters.
