Digital Cash Rundown 43 with Eric Olson: 700m Lightning Users, Tether Drama & More!

By TheDesertLynx | Digital Cash Network | 16 Oct 2021

Eric Olson comes on the Digital Cash Rundown to talk all things crypto, including a long exploration of the state of the Bitcoin Lightning Network, especially a prediction that 700 million people will be using Lightning by 2030, which would necessitate the entirety of Bitcoin's on-chain capacity every day from now until then just to open channels... that is, of course, if they're actually using Lightning, and not a centralized service. We also go into the Tether drama, with the embattled stablecoin project showing more skeletons in its closet. And finally we of course cover the casino coins like Shiba Inu and Dogecoin, which have captured people's imaginations but haven't shown much real-world utility.
