The gold story made me LOL 😂
does anyone here who uses anchor know how to transfer to a lightning wallet, or is it not possible? I see on the anchor site it says it takes 2 weeks or up to two months to be able to transfer out, but I've had funds in here for longer than that and i'm having trouble finding a wallet I can easily transfer to. happy to throw some sats to someone who has a solution.

Are you channeling J.R.R. Tolkien _lord of the rings_ in that episode title ? Are you accepting title nominations? Here’s one inspired by the Toronto heist and another inkling, CS Lewis, in _the great divorce_ more solid then gold

Bitcoin Dad Pod is my new favorite bitcoin podcast. I think you guys do a great job of breaking down complex topics while still being entertaining, and the audio quality is excellent. Too many podcasts rely on zoom quality call-in guests rehashing the same old topics. Thanks for your hard work! Question: what do you think will be the tipping point for bringing normies to v4v platforms?

I've noticed that Americans don't travel much outside of the country so tend to miss just how much a pain currency conversions are. Granted it's not a day to day expense but if you travel once a year USD would start to feel a lot less convenient.

in the last year I've made a point of paying in BTC when ever possible, but I always replace those sats right away. might be a very inefficient way of buying something but I wish I could be payed in sats so if a vender accepts btc I think it's worth it to honor that for them.

This new node solution still wouldn’t work with the POS systems where I live, many (90%) of POS systems are still using dial up. And I live in Washington State.
