Using Hive To Fund My Habit!

Wow! That was so cool! Probably, one of the coolest things I did on this blockchain, and boy, was it easy. I turned a handful of Hive, into a $10 Starbucks gift card!

And, this was all made possible by @brianoflondon's amazing work with the Lighting network! ⚡️⚡️

I also followed the simple directions from @patrickulrich's post!

You will just need an account from The Bitcoin Company(pls use my referral code- 1BAW4C,) and access to the website, lnd.v4v.app/.

I highly recommend reading this post for detailed information, but this is what I did...

First off, I signed up to The Bitcoin Company(pls use my referral code- 1BAW4C,) and selected to purchase a $10 Visa gift card (digital only!)

I then copied the invoice, and proceeded to lnd.v4v.app/. There, I pasted the invoice. I chose to pay with Hive, and I paid and signed the transaction.

It literally took seconds, when I saw a $10 Visa gift card in my account. I even 21 sats back for this transaction. I then, went to my Starbucks app and reloaded the $10. But you can also choose from many different gift cards they offer, or just use the visa gift card at your favorite store!

So, thanks to @brianoflondon for your great work, and to @patrickulrich for writing the guide I followed!

This whole process was so cool and easy. I highly recommend you give this a try!

Thanks for stopping by!

It's really nice to see the new BTC bridge is being used to convert Hive into BTC into gift cards. It's adding another way to get your money out and use it in real life.
