In the summer of 2020 an internet stranger on reddit tipped me $3 for some reason, as I was discussing the deteriorating economic situation in Lebanon, I was completely ignorant to everything crypto at that time so I decided to bet it on Football (soccer), for some reason luck was on my side and I won around $5 and having not verified my betting account decided to convert the $8 back to Bitcoin.
Fast forward a year having not been able to withdraw that amount (living in Lebanon) I watched the $8 turn into $50 due to Bitcoin's increased valuation.
This past week I sold the $50 to a local buyer, and paid my parent's rent, due to the economic situation in the country and hyperinflation, dollars are highly sought after.
So the next time you tip someone a small amount, remember you could be changing that person's life in meaningful ways, $50 is literally the minimum salary in Lebanon, and due to the generosity of a stranger, luck and bitcoin's power I brought joy to the faces of my family.
Thank you Reddit stranger!
