Cryptocurrencies explained by the wonderful John Oliver

Cryptocurrencies are confusing. That much we know. 

From all the hubbub about Bitcoin, to the bumble of blockchain, it’s difficult to make sense of cryptocurrencies, but everyone seems to be talking about them.

Leave it to John Oliver, host of Last Week Tonight, to make sense of it all for us.

It’s everything you don’t understand about money combined with everything you don’t understand about computers,” says Oliver in his introduction, before breaking down what exactly is involved with the world of crypto.

Oliver shows celebrities such as Michael Keaton giving their opinions on Bitcoin, but doesn’t provide a personal opinion, remaining objective and hilarious the entire time.
