Just starting this podcast from episode 1! Aren't we starting to see a transition back to where people are useing Bitcoin/crypto as cash again? Especially with the implimentation of the Lightning network. If we find ourselves in a similar situation as Russia in the future, wouldn't we then wouldn't we be using it as currency again? Isn't that the kinda the point?
