  1. One of the things I love about bitcoin and will love even more is the ability to transfer value to anyone around the world without a middle man. I come from a decently affluent family. My mother user to tell me that I need to finish my plate of food because some kids in Africa don’t have enough to eat. I always wondered how the fuck me finishing my plate would help a kid in Africa. My mother, nor anyone had the answer. But now I know the answer. The answer is if I finish my plate of food, I wouldn’t be hungry for a while. And while I’m not hungry anymore, whatever money I ‘save’ because I don’t eat a second time, I can send it over to someone in Africa or somewhere it’s needed. But today, there’s no way for me to transfer $0.10 to someone in Djibouti if I wanted to do it. The transaction could alone make it not a worthwhile venture. But with bitcoin and LN, this becomes possible.

    I can’t wait for a day when I’m at the Jack in the Box drive-through and I see that my total would be $8:50. But instead of proceeding to pay, I’d get out of the drive-through and instead send those $8.50 to people around the world over LN so that they can buy food. I’d love to buy someone’s dinner in a refugee camp in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Haiti, Southern US border. I’d love to pay off a child’s school due in Kenya in Kazakstan. I’d love to buy a teddy bear for a child’s birthday in Hong Kong, I’d love to buy a hooker a hot meal so she doesn’t have to hook.

    With wide BTC and LN adoption, this becomes possible. And I can’t wait.
