To this date (unless I'm really busy), whenever I send a BTC tx I'm always fascinated with what the mempool looks like at that time, which fee I sent the tx at, and that first confirmation is always "magic" to me.
I know it's cheesy as hell, but sending a BTC tx feels like I'm accomplishing something small yet great every single time. I hope it never gets old 🙂
Took about 10 minutes to go from not having anything to buying a skype prepaid card.
Downloaded the ECLAIR wallet from the google play store
Loaded the wallet with some BTC
Opened a clannel with ACINQ Node
Went to bitrefill.com
Requested to buy a Skype $ 10 gift card
Scanned the code
Had to wait for BTC and Channel to confirm (3 minutes)
Scanned the code again
Instantly got my gift card.
This is amazing technology!
