If you have heard about Bitcoin in the news and thought that it was just some digital money for
computer geeks, you are wrong. It is a world-changing invention, on par with the Internet itself (you know, that thing that lets you instantly find out anything you want and communicate with whoever you want).
The US dollar sucks. There is no gold backing it. Not a lot of people know that. And the more and more dollars are printed, the less and less each is worth, until it all comes crashing down (the average lifespan for a fiat currency is 27 years).
I could go on and on, but I won't. Instead I'll refer you to my favorite podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, where Joe hosts Andreas Antonopoulos, who will explain Bitcoin and its implications with far more ease than I ever could.
It is nearly three hours long, but I implore you to listen. It's really that important.
I took the liberty of starting it at 10:33, right after the commercials. Also, if you would rather download it and listen in chunks, it is available for free on iTunes.
If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer anything in the comments section or on Facebook or Twitter.
