A MAN who spent more than £50,000 on Bitcoins has embarked on a fresh attempt to explain them.
According to friends, Tom Logan revealed the hi-tech currency was both the ‘future of money’ and the ‘internet of things’.
But Logan’s friend Jane Thompson said: “At first Tom was very confident and explained how you can buy these things ‘really easily’.
“But as we asked more questions he became increasingly anxious and upset.”
She added: “I suggested the value of Bitcoins seemed to be completely arbitrary and then asked why it was different from investing in a fictional Portuguese holiday village.
“He smiled at me and asked if I had heard of ‘electric wallets’ but he soon found himself circling back towards ‘the future’.
“After 20 minutes he was interrupting all of our questions with ‘because of the computers!’ in what I felt was an unnecessary tone.”
