Just made my first Lightning purchase in the wild! ⚡️

Just made my first Lightning purchase in the wild! ⚡️

I've had a node running for some months and I'm working on an iOS app controlling it over RPC. I recently found out that a restaurant in my city (Kasbah in Oslo) was accepting lightning payments – so of course I had to go test it.

I opened a channel directly to the restaurant to prevent any routing errors. For a smaller amount I would probably be able to use one of my existing channels, but they are not very well funded.

The girl serving didn't miss a beat when I asked to pay with lightning and the transaction went through in less than a second.

Instant payment! ⚡️

Taste of success! 🍍

iOS savvy and wanna check out the app? (It's pretty rough though) github
