Since 2013, my buddy and I have just been gambling and hoarding various coins. Like a majority of subscribers, I’ve been focused on price and shamefully neglected Bitcoin use cases. For the first time in nearly 5 years, I’ve utilized crypto as a means to transfer funds internationally.

My girlfriend and I met online nearly two years ago. We’ve talked about meeting and about a month ago, solidified our plans to finally be tangible! We’re going Dutch on the plane ticket so I needed a way to send her money. I began looking up moneygram and western union fees while she looked up places she could pick the money up from. About 5sec into my search I stopped and said, “Babe, let’s just use internet money!” Forgive the terminology, I kept my explanation to her as simple as possible.

Within 72hrs we accomplished the following without ever leaving our houses:

-Created her a Coinbase account and linked her bank account using a SEPA transfer in less than 48hrs.

-Sent my Bitcoin from the USA to the UK in less than 30min for $3.23.

-Sold her BTC for her national currency which was deposited into her bank account with 24hrs.

For someone who checks their portfolio frequently, this was an awakening. I’ve since written down which coins I own, how many of each I have, where they’re stored and deleted my Blockfolio app. Price is irrelevant right now and it’s much easier to say so when you remove price from the equation.

Hold or Hodl, call it what you will, I’ll see you all in the future!
