We are creating the infrastructure of the Bitcoin standard.
The individual car, the personal computer, the smartphone. All technological objects with a social value. You do not need to travel back too far in time to see these as novelties, reserved for a minority of geeks or wealthy individuals.
It is our utmost conviction, that in a near future, everyone on the planet will be running multiple bitcoin and lightning nodes, whether they know it or not.
Nodes will be integrated into your car, your phone, your smartwatch, and your water heater. Nodes will be in every household and every business.
They will come in all shapes and forms. Like the keys you have on your keychain, they will all serve different purposes. Nodes will be mobile, private, and geographically redundant, creating an entire host of un-censorable, unstoppable individuals and businesses.
There will be no pre-requisite to running a node. Only the will to leverage the capabilities they offer will distinguish the early adopters from the laggards.
The power of cryptography, miniaturized computers, and decentralized networks that nodes leverage will also re-shape how the world works. Individuals and businesses will be allowed to re-assess control over their lives. No matter where you are located, nodes will be available at the very edge of the network. By opting in, to a set of rules that can be individually verified and enforced, the balance of power will be tilted back in favor of the people.
We see a future where we can get back to being innocent till proven guilty. A future where uninvited third parties are a thing of the past, and where natural law trumps artificially built regulatory moots designed by lobbyists.
Running a node will mean something and running a nodl will give you superpowers.
