I had two experiences with lightning this week. One was effortlessly onboarding a friend with near instantaneous payments like magic, I was the slow point in the chain! The other was having a node fail when your huge ballerboost came in Chris (so much appreciated 🥰). She can be a cruel mistress haha

hey guys, who do you think will be the first big nation to adopt/integrate BTC? I can't see Russia or China giving their people that much freedom even if it opens up options for their trade. I wonder if the US would give in as the dollar is looking less attractive for international trade and settle for controlling the large US on ramps. maybe the EU or India?

You're bang on with the Gold ETF proxy argument. I used to own Perth Mint (PMGOLD) as exposure to it. They are dodgy to say the least. Woke up one day to find they somehow had taken one of my shares, with no communication, as an administrative cost or some BS. Also check out the recent scandal of them sending diluted gold to China. All benefits are lost unless you self custody and that is hard nowadays. #bitcoinfixesthis
