Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road? To Buy Some Bitcoins, Of Course.
A Farmer's Dream?
It's mid-January. Winter is not even one month old yet. So it's cold, it's windy, it's wet. The shutters in your room are knocking on your window as you try to find that sweet spot in your bed where there's warmth. You can't, so you look at your clock.
That clock which has been handed down for four generations in your family until it became yours. It's not even four o'clock in the morning yet, so it's time for you to remember another piece of knowledge that's also been handed to you for the same four generations: it's time to feed the chickens.
You get up. You put on your shoes. You are trying to become awake; maybe you have a cup of tea or coffee. The chickens are still waiting. Where did you leave your coat hanging last night? So as the first molecule of caffeine hits your neurons, you have an epiphany. “This could be so much easier if I had a blockchain to do it for me.”
Well, we're here to tell you: such blockchain does exist, and you can use it if you want. It's called Pollofeed.com.
The Blockchain Is There For You
Never again will you have to get up at inhumane hours during a wintery morning to make sure your chickens can eat. Here's what you do: you start up your Lighting Wallet and send 1,000 Satoshis (not that much money, really) to Pollofeed using Bitcoin's Lightning network. And that's it. It will feed your chickens for you.
We're not kidding, Bitcoin is finding new real-world use cases all the time, so it's becoming useful and not just a neat toy for nerds.
But chickens are not the only ones getting a piece of Bitcoin's.
While this next example is not as useful as feeding chickens, it's also real, and it's very funny. Satoshi's world launched a game. It's one of those augmented reality kinds of games. The game is to use Google maps to do some graffiti over any building in the world you may fancy. Some players seized the chance to spray the word “Bitcoin” on the White House.
The Lightning Network
The Lightning Network is one of the newest updates to the Bitcoin network. It's designed to address the years-old scalability problem in Bitcoin so that transfers can be completed safely, quickly, at very low costs.
This has given Bitcoin something of a new life and developers all over the world are trying to take advantage of the new technology so that blockchain and Bitcoin-based new applications can change everybody's life. We're talking things as ordinary as buying a can of coke using your Bitcoins.
So, yes, your chickens won't be crossing the road to buy any Bitcoins any time soon. But they will be able to pass the road because that's what well-fed chickens can do, and their feeding will come (or at least, it could come) from Bitcoin and blockchain decentralized applications that will save you all the bother in waking up when the sun is still down, and even your roosters aren't singing yet.
