humblebrag    谦虚自夸         有些自恋的人很高调,时常把自己的成就挂在嘴边;有些人比较低调,时刻说自己怎么不好,就算自夸也是拐着弯儿边骂边夸,我们管这叫humblebrag(谦虚自夸)。  Humblebrag, the combination of humble and brag, is the lowest, most despicable and loathsome form of self promotion, often delivered in one or two fragmented sentences on social networking sites. A typical and popular approach is to use a disingenuous complaint about something, a self-deprecating statement or a comment on something completely innocuous, as a vehicle to deliver the real message, which invariably shows the person in a favorable light. In fact it shows what an attention seeking and insecure person they really are. (Source: urbandictionary.com)

Bitcoin      比特币     比特币(Bitcoin)是电子货币的一种形式,是专为互联网交易使用创造的货币。比特币不像传统货币那样由央行来发行管理,而是完全依托互联网来运行。比特币由一个计算机网络来“印制”,一款特制软件在该网络中运行,以固定稳定的频率发行新币,目前的频率为每十分钟出25个比特币。跟你兜里的现金不一样的是,比特币的数量是有限的,目前整个系统内大约有1080万个比特币。虽说该币种早有价值不稳定的骂名,不过每个比特币目前的平均价值基本保持在35美元左右。而且,跟很多传统货币一样,比特币也有它自己的货币符号(像£, $, 等)和货币代码BTC(像GBP, USD, EUR等)。       The Bitcoin is a form of electronic money which has been created specifically for use on the Internet. The Bitcoin doesn't operate like conventional currencies in that it isn't regulated by a central bank, and relies entirely on web-based networks. Bitcoins are 'minted' by a network of computers, which run specialized software designed to release new coins at a fixed and steady pace, currently around 25 Bitcoins every ten minutes. Bitcoins, unlike the cash in your pocket, are finite, and there are currently around 10.8 million of them floating around the system. Though notoriously unstable, the average value of one Bitcoin currently stands at around 35 US dollars. Like many traditional currencies, Bitcoins even have their own symbol (compare £, $, , etc) and also a currency code, BTC (compare GBP, USD, EUR, etc).
