If you come from a non-tech background and you are reading the bitcoin whitepaper for the first time, I think you would agree with me that it is all mumbo jumbo filled with technical jargon. Just a minute later, you would probably be 80% lost and confused on page 2.
I have been through that and I understand the struggles.
Hence, this article is written to explain in simple terms what bitcoin is and how it works. Since I am a non-tech person, it might not be entirely accurate and complete. But I will try my best to explain it based on my own understanding. The format of this article will follow that of the original whitepaper. To make the best use of your reading experience, it is best to read the original whitepaper first before making reference to this guide. The link can be found here.
