The only airdrop I support is @Opendime s with little parachutes being dropped by cargo planes into countries teetering on the edge of sovereign default

@Opendime this is what I'm envisioning. used to love playing with these

@Opendime but on a serious note, I do find it sad that so many of the countries that need Bitcoin most have no infrastructure to get individuals access to Bitcoin. right now, Bitcoin as an off-ramp for venezuelans or turks is more of a nice story than a reality.

@Opendime I have made finding and financing these entrepreneurs an early focus of our fund; already in late diligence with a company doing something similar. looking for more. appreciate any introductions.

@nic @Opendime
That's better. :)

I have been debanked in the US since 2010 so it's not just THOSE people who need it.

@nic @Opendime localbitcoins implementing KYC/AML feels like the death of the last onramp for people in those situations. Opendime can be the new cash for them. Hard money cash.

@BrianLockhart @nic @Opendime Aren’t there alternatives to localbitcoins for P2P trades? Bisq, etc?

@alan8325 @nic @Opendime yup, but as much as I love Bisq, it’s not as normie-friendly as localbitcoins. It’s getting better all the time but it’s got a higher rampup cost / higher barriers to entry.

@BrianLockhart @alan8325 @Opendime hodl hodl is a good take on it. I also hope azteco takes off. looking into similar businesses.

@nic @BrianLockhart @alan8325 @Opendime Combination of Bitcoin ATM and a simple Bitcoin wallet like is great for onboarding newbies to Bitcoin. We've on boarded tons of senior citizens and taught them to hodl their own keys. Working on master plan to expand our formula globally.

I once mused @Opendime vending machines. That would be pretty dope.

@nic @Opendime it's a viable offramp for individuals, just not the population at large. Turks or Venezuelans with foresight and financial knowledge (who didn't emigrate) have been building hedges against currency devaluation for years. I say this as a South African all in on sound money.

The general public are hosed, of course, especially the poorest. Sadly, they're not ready for Bitcoin and vice versa.
