I For One Welcome Our Bitcoin Overlords



Text  



Good news, Internet: You don’t have to anguish anymore over what it’s like to live solely on cyberspace-based cryptocurrency. I spent seven days living on Bitcoin and wrote about it here, all for your edification. I mean, anything for journalism, right?

I should add that two people deserve credit for helping me keep my head above water for the week: First, Zach Harvey, who is a Bitcoin consultant and was really patient about explaining things to me that I still don’t totally understand, and second, Justin Green of the Washington Examiner, who bought me beer at one point because he felt bad for me (no Washington bar yet takes Bitcoin, to my knowledge). Credit where credit’s due.
