I can remember that some years ago I suggested the use of ham radio to make payments. I was told that ham radio was dead, and that it would never happen, but here we are with the completion of such a payment. It illustrates the versatility of crypto currencies, and I expect to see many other alternatives to an increasingly censored Internet.
