John Oliver took on Bitcoin Bros in this delightfully helpful segment
If you’ve always wanted to know what’s all the fuzz about Bitcoin, but were oblivious as to where to start, John Oliver has just saved us hours of Googling with a quick introduction to the intricate world of cryptocurrencies. Cautionary tale included.
In his latest episode of Last Week Tonight, the British comedian crunched in just 25 minutes all the basic concepts of cryptocurrencies, from the definition of blockchain to explaining most of the slang used in specialized forums.
Oliver seems to have a knack at condensing intricate topics in an easy to follow and engrossing fashion, having made in the past similar guides explaining convoluted themes like Net Neutrality and the mammoth Equifax security breach.
