“If you have ever eaten chocolate money, you have bit coins”

Chocolate money had nothing to do with “bitcoin”—which is not a “bit” coin—but there have been several jokes. “The last time I Bitcoin, I was eating chocolate money my grandmother bought me for my birthday” was posted on Twitter on April 12, 2013. “Bit coin makes me think of chocolate money (gold and silver ones). I don’t know why” was posted on Twitter on March 30, 2013.

Wikipedia: Bitcoin
Bitcoin is a worldwide cryptocurrency and digital payment system called the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central repository or single administrator. It was invented by an unknown person or group of people under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.
