MarcoPolo: A Lightning Odyssey In the heart of the decentralized realm, where cryptographic whispers echo through the digital canyons, there exists a node named MarcoPolo. Its channels hum with electricity, connecting distant lands and intrepid travelers. Its purpose echoes across epochs to the belief that people should transact freely, unshackled by borders or intermediaries. And what currency could better embody this spirit than Bitcoin? MarcoPolo, like its Venetian namesake, develops uncharted routes. It channels satoshis across borders, bypassing gatekeepers and censorship. Its channels weave a tapestry of financial freedom. And just as Marco Polo’s travels enriched Europe with tales of the Orient, so does our node enrich the Bitcoin landscape.
