RE: How do you explain crypto to your wife?
Hi I think explaining Crypto is a little easier than explaining what a blockchain is.
I would call it an alternative currency that is not controlled by anyone especially the banks.
It is all digital so there is no physical footprint.
When I explained this to my wife. She did not like the idea of non physical. She said it was like it is imaginary. It is a hard sell if looked at this way.
I got around this by saying that it is good for buying things and should be treated like gold where you only buy what you can afford to lose.
I hope this helps.
