Tells the minimum you must know in order to try bitcoins. It assumes that you do not want details of how bitcoins are created (mined), sent (broadcast), or verified (confirmed). You do not care whether bitcoins are truly “money”, whether they have “intrinsic value”, nor their political implications. You do not care whether they conceal your identity or reveal it. And you do not want to debate narcotics, pornography, guns, tobacco, alcohol, socialism, libertarianism, or anarcho-capitalism. You just want to get a few coins and play around with them.
