Help spread Lightning Adoption by using the LNtipbot. It works great.

The Bitcoin Lighting network has been up and running on mainnet for almost a year. There are over 16000 lightning channels open today. (https://p2sh.info/dashboard/db/lightning-network?orgId=1).

Have you tried it?

Some people are too lazy to give it a try. Give them an incentive by sending some bitcoin over the Lightning Network using the lntipbot.

You can find instructions here;

https://www.reddit.com/r/lntipbot/wiki/index

The more people giving tips the more likely someone is to setup a LN wallet and join the network – Either as a way to withdraw or to add to their balance and pass on the favor.

There are over 1 million r/bitcoin subscribers. If only 10% were encouraged to open a lighting channel the network would grow substantially.

These type of micro transactions are the perfect use case for Lighting. [Near] free and instant medium of exchange.

If your interested in setting up a Lightning wallet, but don't have much technical knowledge (like me) try the Bitcoin Lighting App for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lightning.walletapp&hl=en_US).

This app supports sending and receiving Lighting payments. Receiving requires some spare capacity in a channel.

It would be awesome if we could get this implemented on some other crypto subs to help spread awareness.

thanks u/drmoore718 for the great work.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Last week 1,190 BTC (all time high) were traded using localbitcoins in Venezuela. One BTC is around 1,900,000 BsS (all time high too). Montly minimum was increased from around 5 USD (1800 BsS.) to 12 USD (4500 BsS.). Inflation in the last three months was 400,000%.

Hi guys, monthly update. I'm Venezuelan living here, each day needing more money to survive. It's incredible how inflation is reaching even "hard" currency like USD or EUROS.

BTW: Maduro "ordered" to change the value of the petro v2 (Venezuelan "crypto") from around 3,600 BsS. to 9,000 BsS.
