The United Nations recognises 180 official currencies. Would Bitcoin ascend to this list one day? El Salvador doesn’t quite inspire confidence even though it was the first country in the world to recognise Bitcoin as legal tender two years ago.
Still, the Lightning Network is steadily making inroads into our everyday lives. Some of us are actively checking for merchants that will accept sats as payment while others buy gift cards as a way of spending their sats.

Do you necessarily care if Bitcoin becomes an official currency?
