It is utilized to complete unique functions in ways ordinary nodes can’t. It can be used for features like direct send / instant transactions or private transactions.

Decentraland is an open-source project dedicated to building out the virtual world. Decentraland is divided into a limited number of parcels, known as LAND. LAND is the canvas on which you create your experiences. As an owner, you have full creative freedom and any income generated by anything you make goes straight into your pocket via their cryptocurrency (MANA). Like in the non-virtual world, users are able to traverse Decentraland, discovering experiences as they roam. As a result, your LAND's location can influence the types of visitors that you will attract. You can navigate Decentraland’s geography and themed districts using the ATLAS tool and find the best location to develop. As an ADDED BONUS we will have a secondary topic covering setting up everyone with their very own Lightning wallet that enables Bitcoin payments almost instantaneously with very low fees. Please note Lightning is still in its experimental phase. Disclaimer, we recommend everyone exercise caution and only play around with very small amounts of BTC as there is risk to losing your funds with Lightning. 8PM: Closing remarks and general discussion. Feel free to leave at your discretion. Info about Decentraland: Decentraland is a virtual world where you can build and explore 3D creations, play games and socialize.
