If you bought Bitcoin and lost interest after the last crash you might want to check your account again as it's inching toward 14,000.

My son-in-laws father is a computer geek and he has four water cooled processors devoted to mining Bitcoin. Quite an elaborate system. The concept of Bitcoin eludes me.

It's a cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology. Just pretend it's foreign currency.

Bitcoin is something that people believe is a type of "electronic currency".
You can invest a lot of money in it, then someone can hack into the system and steal all the actual money that you have invested.
No thanks, not for me. I'll stick with cash.

No, not really different than Monoply money. They're both games.

Co-worker has been big in it for a few years. He made some sales this month and bought a 250K house. He has been helping a lot of folks at my work with getting into crypto. He has several folks in a group text telling when to buy/sell bitcoin and 2-3 other cryptos.

It's kinda hard to make money on Bitcoin now unless you bought it early or during the crashes. I did pretty good with some of the "penny" crypos this spring. As if you're bought em at the low around December you could of 7x your money by summer.

Yes, I do have a bank account. I have five of them actually.
My wife is the manager at our bank and she sees our accounts multiple times a day. If anything "unauthorized" came up or happened, she would see it instantly and we would be fully reimbursed for any funds lost.

Might want to check your ToS as there's scenarios that that statement doesn't hold water.

So would someone school me on this stuff? Is it sorta like a commodity that people pay real U.S. dollars for, then just sit on it waiting for it to grow in value.......but you can sell/swap/trade/shuffle it around between other holders of said commodity, or actually use it as "money" to buy stuff from anyone that considers it "money"? Also, do you get it through a stock broker, or is it strictly it's own deal in it's own little cyber-world????????

You can use it as real currency with some vendors. Paypal is going to start using bitcoin soon. There are some actual commodity based coins out there.

There are a few exchanges out there you can use. Coinbase is what I use and there are many more.
