Emerging: the “bit” as currency.

Six-penny bit

Two bits, four bits, six bits a dollar…all for hipsters stand up and holler!

We’ve all sung some variant of this little ditty growing up, but how many actually know what a “bit” is anyhow? Forget about “bit coins.” That trend was over before it even got started…

In this day and age of penny pinching and number crunching whilst waiting for that next bank account drop from the rents, royalty check or tip cash out, it’s important to keep track of your cash flow in a way that sets you apart from everyone else.

Enter: the “bit.” A measure of currency oft used by old farmers, measuring currency in increments of twelve and a half cents, which only adds to your hip cred by using terminology that has passed from the lexicon of common lingo for decades.
