"Privacy is at the root of Lightning which is a requirement for a retail payment network to succeed. It builds on Bitcoin which does not optimize for privacy⁵ but transparency and robustness." - Nicolas Burtey & Chris Hunter

As excellent piece today from the Galoy Money team that compares the current world of retail payment infrastructure with the incredible potential of a similarly architected, but fundamentally more open, permissionless, private, and censorship resistant payments system built with the Bitcoin & Lightning protocol stack.  An excellent piece with a sobering, but hugely bullish vision of a Bitcoin future.
