Why Use Satoshis?
Bitcoin was originally created with the intent to be a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system”, meaning anyone could use it to pay for goods and services.
Bitcoin's current rise in popularity has increased the transaction times and associated fees to the point that it stopped being a practical day-to-day payment method.
However, there are scaling solutions being built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain, such as the lightning network, helping to increase the transaction speeds and decrease overall transaction fees, thus making sats more useful as a payment rail.
