only 0.04 transacted on LBC, but this new top entry is AOA at a price premium of $18324.00 USD equiv. Coincident with the recent 400k Congolese expulsion in Angola?

@nic seems like a good time to prototype solution in more overtly totalitarian countries like China, Venezuela, etc. so we're ready.

Shower thought: Only people that receive payments should run full nodes. People who run LN relay nodes receive payments. The best way to run a LN node is on a stand-alone RPi system that also has a fullnode. Ergo more people running LN nodes increases the number of economically interested full nodes.

USD monetary based has quadrupled twice...

1974 - 2008
2008 - 2015

Worst part is most don't realize the criminality in our government allowed the second quadrupling. QE is but a mask.

@PaulTroon That's awesome. I'd like to plot this all on a map soon with more data to visualize over time.

@christinabahk Thank you! this is such interesting data.

I did a quick and dirty analysis of this data looking at ratios against GDP and population.

I would say the GDP ratio identifies countries most economically motivated by BTC and the population ratio is more about overall popularity and interest.

"Did you kill me because I am evil?" the man asked.
"You are not evil," said the unicorn."Oh. Good."
"Nobody is evil. Nobody is good." The unicorn shook the blood off its horn. "It is not being, it is doing. You? You chose to do evil."

Happy 10 year anniversary to the Bitcoin white paper.. To compare with the internet.. ARPAnet began with two research nodes (UCLA and SRI, Menlo Park) on Oct. 29, 1969. 10 years later the network was still small and primarily US based. The TCP/IP protocol was standardized by 1982. Public commercial internet access began in 1989, and the first HTTP software became available in 1990. The dawn of mass adoption was at least 20 years from the inception of the first rudimentary network.

@BTCHODL This is the @lopp security presentation from Baltic Honeybadger 2018 day 1 that I was referring to. It goes a lot deeper than VPNs at the beginning. VPN stuff starts around 6:09.
