The Coin Bureau Podcast: Crypto Without the Hype

The Language of Crypto

April 29, 2022

Now that we’ve covered blockchain and Bitcoin, it’s time to tackle one of the most daunting and downright intimidating aspects of cryptocurrency. It’s a minefield that’s not for the faint-hearted. It is, of course, crypto jargon.


Like any community, crypto has its own unique phraseology that can be baffling to outsiders. For newcomers, getting to grips with the lingo is one of the first steps to becoming a fully-fledged cryptopian.


So, in this episode, we unpack some of the words and phrases you’ll encounter in the world of cryptocurrency. But, we’ll also look beyond their meanings and try to figure out where they came from too. We’ll learn how one of crypto’s most famous terms came into being as a result of a forum user drinking too much whiskey; we’ll try and figure out why crypto people have lasers for eyes and we’ll put FUD to flight while we’re at it.


So, forget Duolingo because the Coin Bureau podcast has you covered. 


We hope you enjoy the show.
