Mikael Lindqvist is a software developer based in Ubud, Bali. He embarked on his Bitcoin journey as early as 2010. His first project was creating a plugin to accept Bitcoin payments for Drupal. Since then, he has worked on numerous projects, including Bitcoin gaming and a VoIP application called Papaya Phones, which utilizes the Lightning Network for payments. As a developer, he has a deep appreciation for Bitcoin, valuing it more for its technological potential rather than as an investment or speculative asset.
