This application is named after the Bitcoin
Lightening Network or perhaps a Lightening Strike, but it is simply called Strike!
Strike, the what, when, why & how

How to purchase Bitcoin
Down load and set up a Lightening Network or Bitcoin Wallet. Then copy your Bitcoin wallet address go to buy Bitcoin Tab in the App, select the amount of USD to spend, paste wallet address press buy and done. The Bitcoin shows up in your wallet.!
What does this mean?
This means the theoretical possibility of The Lightening Network facilitating the move by El Salvador to using Bitcoin as legal tender is no just theoretical it is actual. Everyone with a phone and internet access can use this wallet to use Bitcoin as currency. It looks like dollars but it’s actually Bitcoin under the surface of the User Interface!
And when the users are ready they will convert their dollars to Bitcoin when they get dollars and then save it until they need it to buy goods in either Bitcoin or dollars. This application is amazing. And it was made for just a time as this!
But it’s only available in El Salvador and the USA!
Yes, that’s true, and if other countries make Bitcoin Legal Tender, I would imagine it would be available. Or through the Magic of VPNs the population of El Salvador would just get bigger. :)
