We are pleased to announce the launch of a #Bitcoin / Lightning node in support of El Salvador’s adoption of Bitcoin as a national currency. Additional information on the node, El Salvador B4B, is available on 1ml.com. Bitcoin as a national currency in El Salvador will become effective on September 7, 2021, with retailers required to accept Bitcoin and a $30/citizen multi-million dollar Bitcoin airdrop to prime the pump.
We already have channels connected to other public Lightning nodes in El Salvador, including Bitcoin Beach. We welcome connections to any nodes in El Salvador. Simply open a 1m+ sat channel to us and we will open one to you.
Our node has implemented #ZeroFeeRouting to encourage rapid adoption which means there are no fees associated with using our node to send or receive Bitcoin.
