Bitcoin explained and made simple        Video        Animated explainers        Guardian        25 June 2014

 

Baffled by bitcoin?

 

Confused by the concept of crypto-currencies?

 

Well, fear no more. In 190 seconds we explain what bitcoin actually is,

where the idea came from and the impact it's having around the world.

or just a silly slice of technical utopianism?
