A couple of weeks back in Manchester I remember saying to Paddy McCorry "the canonical Bitcoin user is probably a Nigerian trader paying a businessman in China to avoid capital controls" - which I was entirely making up, albeit based on a few vague understandings of how the word actually works.

Now listen around 36-38 minutes to the new LTB podcast 402 "The Tools and the Work pt 2" (sorry not on website yet). Quote "millions to hundreds of millions per day .. in bitcoin".

word=world sorry.

Also have to shout out LTB for these two podcasts. I've been a strong critic of much of their content these last few years, but these interviews on taproot with sipa and nickler, alongside the interviews with iranian and nigerian users are some of the best bitcoin content anyone's ever put out.
