Around El Salvador in 40 Lightning Payments
Here’s the bitcoin story of Arnold Hubach in El Salvador.
I’ve been in El Salvador for three weeks now and did 40+ #bitcoin lightning payments ⚡️
Let me show you around – from my Airbnb, surf classes, Boston, Starbucks, to many more food/drink places! 🇸🇻
Starting with brunch in El Zonte at Canegue Cafe. Cash or bitcoin only. No card 💳
One of the most delicious brunches in the country!
My Airbnb in El Zonte, 4amigos, accepts lightning too.
Pro tip: text them on Instagram so you save Airbnb fees!
Fresh mango, papaya, banana’s and coconut included! 🥭 🥥 🍌 Three dogs included as well! 🐶
Bosten premium ice cream.
Accepts @chivowallet , obviously both on-chain and ⚡️
Unfortunately… only Chivo->Chivo.
The best pupusa’s of the country are at Pupuseria Geisy.
Be early, this is the local hotspot for good food! 🫓
Supermarket Super Selectos accepts sats too. Unfortunately the computer mouse didn’t work, so had to pay with card…
But: technically and theoretically they should be able to accept #BTC
Of course I bought crepes, coffee and ice cream at
@MyfirstBitcoin_ Diplomado in Apopa. Youngsters at their school organized a bitcoin marketplace. Sats straight going from my
@PhoenixWallet to their
Of course I visited Starbucks several times and experienced very flawless payment experiences with
Refreshers, cappuccino and more ☕️
Sats the standard!
I almost forgot to add the Keken meal from Puro Surf in El Zonte 🍽️
Or that pupusa place on the opposite of the
where I was coworking (day pass also paid with sats)
On my last day at the coast it squeezed in a surf class where I paid to my surf instructor with @Strike.
“I’ve never had a bad experience with #bitcoin” he told me.
This is just a compilation. Without too much effort I used my lightning wallet 40+ times in ~ three weeks, ~2 times a day!
Groceries, coffee, dinner, settle up with friends,
meetup, snacks from the gas station and so much more.
El Salvador is winning!! 🇸🇻
