Omg thank you! For the longest time I heard a shit ton of talk about UTXO’s but never really understood what the fuck they were. The explanation given by the 4 Bitcoiners in this show has finally clicked and now I get why UTXO management is so important! God bless! Thank you!
No doubt, now I understand why my fees are high than some....
