As Bitcoin continues to gain traction, co-founder of Gemini, an American regulated crypto exchange, Tyler Winklevoss, advised newcomers to the crypto market saying:
“You don’t have to buy a full bitcoin, you can buy any fraction of a bitcoin that you want — even as little as 0.00000001 (called a “satoshi”) is possible”.
This is what Bitcoiners mean when they say they’re “stacking satoshis” or “stacking sats.”
Attention #Bitcoin newcomers, you don't have to buy a full bitcoin, you can buy any fraction of a bitcoin that you want — even as little as 0.00000001 (called a "satoshi") is possible. This is what Bitcoiners mean when they say they're "stacking satoshis" or "stacking sats."

Why you shouldn’t ignore Bitcoin now?
In recent times, some emerged markets have beefed up their monetary activities, attempting to prop up their fragile economies disrupted by the raging COVID-19 pandemic.
BTC holds a maximum supply of about 21 million digital coins of which there are about 18.5 million in circulation, while about 4million BTCs have already been lost forever. These reveal that its definite supply protects the asset against inflationary assets like cash.
