“In Chapter 1 we reached millions. In Chapter 2 we’re going to reach billions and we’re going to do it quickly. And Chapter 2 starts right now.” – Ross Stevens

We are entering a phase of Bitcoin where it becomes accepted as a global store of value asset by large institutions and corporations around the world. Yet simultaneously, we are reaching a point where Bitcoin is also being recognized and utilized as a global, open source, and highly liquid monetary *network.* Chapter 2 isn’t merely about Bitcoin being used to store and protect value, but about Lightning, and the ability to instantly send money and swap it with any currency anywhere in the world.
