bitcoin continues to chip away at the traditional payment rails, which will be a long multi year journey to disrupt the incumbents who all get a slice of the fee. I love the Umbrel node idea of a GBP token alongside BTC and it solving the LNURL decentralisation question. however does that place too much risk on Umbrel being the main provider of these bundled services in their App Store?
