Charlie Lee: Crypto beats fiat and buys an Amazon gift card with Litecoin
Recently, at Blockchain Cruise 2018, the creator of Litecoin Charlie Lee shared the unique features of the encrypted that make them better than fiat:
The resistance to censorship is that which means that governments can not control it and the immutability of the transaction reveals that transactions can not be reversed. Furthermore, the cost of production ensures that coins can not be copied and cost money to create while the fixed money supply means that the offer can not be increased.
While in another case, Lee took on Twitter to share his personal experience of buying an Amazon gift card with Litecoin via Lightning Network:
I just bought an Amazon gift card using LN on Litecoin. The payment went immediately and I immediately received the gift card. Good work on the excellent user experience @bitrefill! 👏 #PayWithLitecoin #PayWithLightninghttps://t.co/dJYLksVVCD
