It's obvious that most users are from developing countries with the recession, high rates of unemployment, poverty, and poor standard of living. Some individuals barely have enough to provide food for the family, then think of providing adequate shelter, good housing, and quality education for the kids in the family. Many live from hand to mouth.
I don't know much about other countries, So I will use my country, Nigeria as a case study.
The current minimum wage for federal workers in Nigeria is ₦30,000 (thirty thousand Nigerian Naira) which is about $78. The initial minimum wage was ₦18,500 ($48) but was increased in 2019 when the President signed the new minimum wage into law amid rising poverty rate and cost of living in the country.
Nigeria has a government-mandated minimum wage. No worker in Nigeria can be paid less than this mandatory minimum rate of pay. Employers in Nigeria who fail to pay the Minimum Wage may be subject to punishment by the government of Nigeria.
This new minimum wage of ₦30,000 may have been implemented in the public sector, the same can't be said of the private sector.
Many workers are still paid below the minimum wage in Nigeria and nothing has been done about it. I know a lot of individuals who live on a ₦10,000 monthly salary and some families whose total monthly income is less than ₦30,000. They have a family to feed, rents, bills, and school fees to pay.
According to Statista:
On average, the monthly cost of living for an individual in Nigeria amounted to 43.2 thousand Naira, whereas this figure added up to 137.6 thousand Naira for a family.
But a lot of individuals and families live on amounts way below the figures given above.
Life keeps getting harder every day and the cost of living is increasing by the day, the poor are getting poorer. There have been rise in food prices, no thanks to the closure of the Nigerian borders by the Federal Government preventing the importation of goods into the country; there has been an increment of VAT from an initial value of 5.0% to 7.5%, and there has been increased in fuel size and electricity tariff. These are having a toll on the poor citizens of the country where my I and my family are placed.
While continuing on the job search, I'm in constant search for ways to earn money - online and offline. I tutor students, farm (most of the products are consumed by the family), an usher at weekend events, and other gigs that come occasionally. While doing this, I also make out time to learn a few skills to improve myself and keep myself prepared for job possibilities. But the job search keeps getting more frustrating by the day. Most employees are looking for people with experience.
Job offer interviews: "Young man, your grades are great and we are impressed by your performance, but we need individuals with X years of experience in this field..."
"How am I going to attain experience if I am not given the opportunity to show what I can offer?" I often thought to myself
There is no giving up, I will keep improving my knowledge and keep searching. I have a lot at stake.
A Glimpse of how read.cash and Bitcoin cash are improving lives
I joined read.cash more a week ago, and have been actively exploring the community, publishing articles, and learning more about Bitcoin. The joy I had when I earned my first tip from the random rewarder... And till date I have earned about $20 in Bitcoin cash from both noise.cash and read.cash. I have sent out $3 ($1 each) to three friends, who I'm on-boarding to the Bitcoin cash community. I have also tried the boosting feature on read.cash with $1, and given out tips to other users. So I currently have about $15 in BCH in my bitcoin.com wallet.
Though I rushed into making a $1,000 goal before 2022, probably influenced by the first few articles I read about users BCH goals and the #Club1BCH, I will likely exchange my earnings to fiat (Nigerian Naira) when it gets to $30. My little sister will be back from school this weekend on mid-term break. and we are expected to make some installment payment of her school fees, else she won't be allowed into the school on resumption. So I will cash in on my earning and use it for the payment.
This is a need met by Bitcoin cash.
Thanks to Bitcoin cash I won't have to worry a lot about where to get the money for the fees. Thank you read.cash, thank you Bitcoin cash. I'm glad to have joined this community, with no regrets. the only regret would be not joining earlier.

I have just discovered the bitcoin cash community about 4 weeks ago but the amount of things/lessons I have learnt from the community is apparently unquantifiable... Bitcoin cash is already serving as a tool to connect all humans from different races, it's already serving as a tool to motivate people, it's already serving as a tool to teach people what is meant by humanity, it's already serving as a tool to change lives and correct wrong perspectives about life.
