I’ve put 5% of each paycheck into bitcoin for the last 3 years.

I've used BitWage for the past 3 years to automatically get 5% of each paycheck (I'm paid weekly) in Bitcoin. During this time I've found 0 need to use my Coinbase, Circle, or Gemini accounts as now I just received bitcoins to my designated wallet the same manner I receive dollars to my checking from each paycheck. I designated a higher percentage of each check to my 401k and RothIRA and regular savings account, so Bitcoin isn't the only investment I have.

IMHO earning Bitcoin > buying bitcoin (even though I guess I'm still buying bitcoin by direct depositing dollars to bitwage and them converting to Bitcoin for me). Hodl on.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Satoshi Nakamoto built in defenses against quantum computing attacks – If you use one Bitcoin address one time, then your ECDSA public key is only ever revealed at the one time that you spend bitcoins sent to each address. A quantum computer would need to be to break your key in that short time.

Thus far lightningspin.com routed over 400 individual payments to our users, for a total of almost 6M satoshis. The fees? 1,300 satoshis, or less than $0.10 USD. Not for each transaction. For all 400 of them combined.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I’ve been in Bitcoin since Feb 2013: Why does each BTC transaction I send still feel amazing? It’s like I’m witnessing a marvel.

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 🙂

“According to Decker, each channel can process about 500 tx per second. With thousands of channels being utilized at once, #Bitcoin could theoretically scale beyond not only any other #cryptocurrency but any other payment method, including VISA.”
