    Just think tho', if you could somehow shield yourself from the low dopamine causing agents -- and you can get away with all that free time at work -- you could meditate, order your meat for the month, plan your next move...

    @caroline
    does that mean that Strike is going to be or already is the way to have Bitcoin (the actual BTC).
    Buy pound of cheese, pay for gas, pay for car's toll, etc.
    Honest, not fungible, no need to be afraid of money being stolen from the account, most all other nastiest are not going to be present in Strike?

    Strike Drives Bitcoin Forward as El Salvador Becomes World’s First Country to Adopt Bitcoin as Legal Tender



    Bitcoin Breaks New Ground for Human Freedom and Empowers Financial Inclusivity Via the Lightning Network

    June 05, 2021 05:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
    MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Strike, the world’s leading digital wallet built on Bitcoin’s Lightning Network, welcomes legislation announced today to make El Salvador the world’s first sovereign nation to adopt bitcoin as legal tender alongside the U.S. dollar. This move will help unleash the power and potential of Bitcoin for everyday use cases on an open network that benefits individuals, businesses, and public sector services.

    “It was an inevitability, but here already: the first country on track to make bitcoin legal tender. Another milestone for Bitcoin and El Salvador. We're pleased to help El Salvador on its journey towards adoption of the Bitcoin Standard”

    Tweet this
    Strike founder and CEO Jack Mallers, one of the earliest Lightning Network developers, has been providing market insights to help make El Salvador’s world-changing effort successful and build the country’s modern financial infrastructure using Bitcoin technology. This technology delivers powerful advantages over legacy financial rails and incumbent payment systems.

    Speaking from Bitcoin 2021 in Miami, Mallers said, “This is the shot heard 'round the world for Bitcoin. What's transformative here is that bitcoin is both the greatest reserve asset ever created and a superior monetary network. Holding bitcoin provides a way to protect developing economies from potential shocks of fiat currency inflation. Additionally, adopting a natively digital currency as legal tender provides El Salvador the most secure, efficient and globally integrated open payments network in the world.”

    President Bukele announced El Salvador’s intention to make bitcoin legal tender in a video broadcast to Bitcoin 2021.

    Making bitcoin legal tender is a leapfrog moment that can help countries like El Salvador shift from a largely cash economy to an innovative, inclusive, and transparent digital economy where your bank account is your phone. That is especially meaningful in El Salvador, where about 70% of people do not have bank accounts or credit cards. In addition, remittances account for more than 20% of El Salvador’s GDP, and incumbent services can charge 10% or more in fees for international transfers that take days to arrive and must be collected from a physical location. That amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars a year that people could save or spend with local businesses in their communities – demonstrating the powerful use cases and addressable market opportunities from scaling Bitcoin and the Lightning Network for everyday uses.

    El Salvador has assembled Bitcoin leaders across the world to help build a new financial ecosystem with Bitcoin as the base layer. "It was an inevitability, but here already: the first country on track to make bitcoin legal tender. Another milestone for Bitcoin and El Salvador. We're pleased to help El Salvador on its journey towards adoption of the Bitcoin Standard,” stated Adam Back, CEO of Blockstream, who plans to contribute technologies like Liquid and satellite infrastructure to make El Salvador a model for the world.

    Strike’s mobile payments app launched in El Salvador in March and quickly became the number one downloaded app in the country. Strike's vision is to build a more connected financial world by making the Bitcoin network easily accessible and useful. Strike expects to enter several more markets in coming months. Once governments see the benefits of Bitcoin technologies like Strike on financial efficiency and inclusion, it becomes obvious that they will seek to follow in the footsteps of El Salvador.

    Since El Salvador is using Strike
    would it follow that Strike should be the chosen one?

    New blog out on the BTC Miami conference. How do you handle stress? Do you use stress or does stress use you? It is a natural condition of existence for us. The dose and our reaction to it, however, is where people either adapt well to it or fall apart. You are not your circumstances or your perceptions. Your attitude determines how you manage this randomness in life. Stress occurs when demands exceed resources. Today there is financial distress in the fiat world that is ruining our ability to live freely and be in control of our destiny because we are being stolen from. When this balance is off long term in your life you pay a biological toll. Today begin to realize, if there's too much of it and it's not properly managed, it becomes distressed. Stress is an adaptive outcome. Stress is a compilation of choices. Begin to learn to make decisions that choose peace in your life today.

    Adding BTC to your balance sheet is how you should de-stress now. This blog explains why thinking outside the box on health and wealth are critical skills for the Black Swan Mitochondriac. When you "Think outside the box" it gives Schrödinger's cat a bunch of possibilities man never considered possible. https://www.patreon.com/posts/btc-28-bitcoin-50456239

    No matter how many bad decisions you have made,
    there is still time to change the road you’re on.
