So I got invited to a quincea簽era a (sweet 15) of a niece of mine. She is the only child of my favorite cousin, I love them so much.
it just so happen to have taken palace at El Palo Verde in El Zonte where we have our bitcoin meet ups. I felt like a king staff knows me there so I got extra good service the food is fantastic and best of all you can pay with lightning.
Now my aunt has a new husband and this guy is your typical brain washed Fiat maxi. In this guys mind Bitcoin is Bukele money, its political money. Unfortunately he is the new patriarch of that side of the family, the neo grandfather of my niece. When my cousin told me that he was a bitcoin hater I told my niece "meet me very early before breakfast I will give you your present come alone and bring a pen and paper" 不 you should have seen the look of confusion on her face.
Next morning I was there real early to see the sun rise, I walked bear foot on the beautiful black sand glistening as i smoked my .10 cent hand rolled ciggar. When I got back to the hotel there was my niece, I gave her a big hug and told her "what im about to give you will change your life forever".
I asked her what do you know about bitcoin she says "its the inevitable future" bright kid. I told her "pull out your phone we are going to download a couple wallets", now everyone in this country thinks you need ID to open an "account" for the lack of a better word, a misconception that chivo left in peoples minds. I told her "no we are downloading real wallets. you don't need IDs or any ones permission especially grandpas. She wrights down the seeds for an onchain and a lighting wallet I go on explaining she need to take care of this seed with her life, then she says "I can engrave this on to dog tags from grandpas shop with out him knowing" 不 instant rebel, damage done . smart kid first thing she thinks put it on metal. What do you expect from a future brain surgeon.
I go on and send funds to her onchain and LN wallet. She understood the apps so well I couldn't believe it , it was like second nature to her mind blowing. I explain basics and send her links to further her knowlage. I call her for time to time to check up on her and her journey. Our last conversation she told me she wants to get a tapsigner. The future is so bright for this one and all the youths of El Salvador.

I say you get her to post an lnurl or invoices here and we'll make her special day even better.

Yeah I would like to send her some sats and a message attached (now that she uses a proper LN wallet).

Great idea here is her address

I sent her this message attached to the payment, but unfortunately Blink that she used is not supporting yet LUD12 comments (I made a request to Galoy team for this here):
Bitcoin is ENERGY stored in the most secured and brilliant way. Never forget that. From DarthCoin
Now even her father-in-law could not ban her from receiving Bitcoin. And it was so easy, in few steps: download an app, set a LN address and done. From that moment ANYBODY in this fucked up world could send her freedom money.
Who says that Bitcoin can be banned by any gov, take that: IT CAN'T BE STOPPED. Who says that Bitcoin is not helping people, take that: I just help that girl to see her future. Who says that Bitcoin is not working a money, take that: now she can go and buy whatever she wants with those money and NOBODY can stop her.
THIS IS FUCKING FREEDOM.
reply
Well said, Darth. It feels good.
reply
Done. I sent 2 zaps, because the first one didn't go through with the message attached. The second one yes, I could send with message using another wallet. A message that she will remember her entire life.
reply
You can send her a word in English or Spanish she is perfectly bilingual
reply
I'm one of those without a message,
