So I'm fully invested in BTC and have believed for a while that it's main use is as a store of value specially against inflation.

However I had a weird thing happen today as I couldn't buy from an online store (CBD) I've purchased before with my regular visa/Mastercard cards, yet saw the store accepted BTC.

Decided to try it out and it worked no problem. It's amazing that with it's vast global network MC could not approve the payment (credit was more than fine) yet BTC network had absolutely no problem.

I almost immediately bought some more tasty dips of BTC mind you, but it's quite a simple proof that it's not just a sore of value, or a hedge against inflation, or a way to transfer value internationally. It's good for all of that and more.
