Get With The Lingo

Learning about Bitcoin in all its complex glory is a tough enough task for anyone who takes a peek into the forums and social media discussions. As Bitcoiners, we take for granted the cultural terms and references we make as it has become second nature to us. 

However, for those starting from scratch, you may need a little assistance.

If you’re curious about what these terms mean, or you’re finding your sea legs prior to your first boating accident, then check out the Bitcoin glossary, which will help you speak Bitcoin more fluently and assist you in plebian rant translations. 

We will be updating the glossary regularly to keep you up to date with the latest Bitcoin terminology so that you don’t have to do be left scratching your head when trying to stay on top of all things Bitcoin.
