Sending BTC can be less stressful than bank transfers.

In a bank, your funds are 'gone' from account while you await recipient to receive.

In Bitcoin, UTXO is either encumbered with your or receiver's pubkey in the blockchain. The transfer of ownership happens in that instant.

A Bitcoin tx is transparent at all times, visible in the mempool vs the opacity of bank transfers.

That UTXO is still *yours* until recorded in the ledger.
