Next Meetup

The Fulmo is back at TechCode:⚡ The Lightning Sessions #2: Zaps and Bolts! ⚡
Hosted by João Frederico G. from Bitcoin Lab Berlin, the #LightningSessions is a regular meetup that aims to give a better understanding of the (Bitcoin) Lightning Network. Together, we will explore the new possibilities and the emerging ecosystem. We'll have different guests that are working on building the Lightning Network protocol, Lightning Network implementations or different applications utilizing the Lightning Network. The Lightning Network is a "second layer" payment protocol that operates on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. It enables fast transactions between participating nodes and is the most promising solution for the long-term scalability of Bitcoin. It features a peer-to-peer system for making micropayments of digital cryptocurrency through a network of bidirectional payment channels without delegating custody of funds. This is the second session. We will have two guest speakers: Rene Pickhardt just attended the Lightning Developer Summit in Adelaide where the new BOLT specifications were discussed. He will give an overview of the topics that were discussed and agreed upon to move Lightning development forward, e.g. dual funded channels, rendevouz routing, the splicing protocol and AMP routing. This will be in the format of a Q&A, so please familiarize yourself with the basics, e.g. here: Tom Kirkpatrick is the lead developer of the ZAP desktop wallet, He'll be sharing insights about building one of the most popular Lightning wallets and will also celebrate his 250th pull request. The meetup is inspired by the #LightningHackday and brought to you by You should have a basic understanding of Bitcoin and the Lightning Network to get the most out of the meetup.
