I started listening today to @TheCryptoconomy podcast (http://cryptoconomy.life/) reading of Iterative Capital's “Thesis” paper (https://iterative.capital/thesis/) and highly recommend it.. great history and background of crypto and analyzed in a way I haven’t heard before, as a long time tech minion their conclusions really resonated

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.
@christinabahk Also very interesting to see such a high volume in Nicaragua, a very poor country that is also experiencing major political violence
@PaulTroon That's awesome. I'd like to plot this all on a map soon with more data to visualize over time.
