Bettina Warburg of Animal Ventures partnered with Wired to sit down to explain/discuss the concept of blockchain, the primary technology behind Bitcoin, with people at five different ages and at five different levels of understanding, ranging from a little girl who quickly grasped the idea of trade all the way to a man with significant insight into the technology.
