Just purchased an Internet package on Claro's own website using #LightningNetwork! It was easy to find the option (big button under the credit card form), and confirmation was instant. The future is now.
@Ertain The easiest way is to use something custodial like https://www.opennode.com which is still much cheaper than cards for the merchant (and free for under $10K monthly IIRC). This way the customer can send from their node, and the merchant doesn't have to worry about running a node, but is still able to withdraw their funds in BTC.
@Ertain Technically, you can build such a network on something different. However, there is nothing nearly as decentralized and without either a monetary or political elite being able to control the base money at the moment. You can literally run this on a RasPi including the bitcoin node itself, and be able to verify all txs in the base layer.
Linux fueled mayhem & madness with a side of news, reviews, and whatever the Hell-Elks™ we come up with.
