1. cryptocurrency (noun) . . . “any form of currency that only exists digitally . . . using a decentralized system to record transactions.”
2. life hack (noun) . . . “a usually simple and clever tip or technique for accomplishing some familiar task more easily and efficiently.”
3. mansplain (verb) . . . “to explain something to a woman in a condescending way that assumes she has no knowledge about the topic.”
