BTC often refers to the cryptocurrency Bitcoin on TikTok. For example, someone might ask: “Do you think BTC is worth investing in?” If there is any language surrounding money or finance, it’s a safe bet to assume this is what the person is talking about. Like other cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin has several online communities and exchanges. It can be purchased, sold, or used to buy items online. The value of the coins has risen and fallen over the years. However, cryptocurrencies are sometimes used by scammers, so it’s always a good idea to be cautious with your money online.

BTC can also stand for “Because They Can.” This is usually a response to someone asking why another person is doing something. For example, “Why are they doing the side quests twice?” “BTC.” In other words, it’s a way of saying that someone doesn’t need a reason to do certain things, and that it’s a valid option to do something unusual because you feel like it. Or, it could be used to preface an explanation. For example, “Why are they doing the side quests twice?” “BTC get more coins that way.” In this sense, BTC can be a standalone sentence, or the beginning of a longer one.
