At 88, my grandmother is able to text, FaceTime and stream YouTube videos to a TV. She encouraged me to attend a Lightning Hackathon and she’s ready to take the lightning torch next! She can even be the oldest person to do so!!

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Summary of the May 18 MIT L2 Summit, discussing layer two scaling, complete with description and links to presentation videos (+ my top 3 favorites)

List also available on Twitter: twitter.com/SomsenRuben/status/1018052262759821312

  1. Introduction (Neha Narula, Director MIT DCI). Presenting an argument why L2 scaling matters (on-chain doesn't scale). youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=262

  2. The Near Future of Lightning (Connor Fromknecht, Lightning Labs). An overview of lightning, discussing amps, splicing, watchtowers (encrypted blobs). youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=918

  3. Non-Custodial Crypto-to-Crypto Trading (Sharon Goldberg, Commonwealh Crypto Inc.), discussing ideas for decentralized exchanges. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=2488

  4. Discreet Log Contracts (Tadge Dryja, MIT). An overview of the tech, similar to talks at previous events, and a demo. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=4321

  5. Using Truebit for verifying offchain computations (Sami Makela, Truebit). Taking computation off-chain and only using the blockchain for disputes. Low on technical details. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=5944

  6. Panel on State Channels (five participants). Talking about different state channel solutions and how they operate. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=7849

  7. Interledger, L2, L3, and Beyond (Evan Schwartz, Ripple engineer). A layer between L2 solutions (seems excessive to me). youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=11315

  8. Scriptless Scripts (Andrew Poelstra, Blockstream). Basic overview, plus blind atomic swaps, zero knowledge contingency payments, Lightning payment hops. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=12965

  9. Building yalls.org with Lightning (Alex Bosworth, Lightning App Dev). Discussing real problems from implementing Lightning micropayments, and possible mitigations. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=14570

  10. Fireside Chat (Elizabeth Stark, Lightning Labs). Her experience working on Lightning. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=15969

My three favorite talks (chronological):

  1. The Near Future of Lightning youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=918

  2. Scriptless Scripts youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=12965

  3. Building yalls.org with Lightning youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=14570

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I made a site that looks and feels like Netflix but has only crypto videos!

http://cryptflix.com/ UPDATE: Server is live for a second time! CryptFlix is a free cryptocurrency videos collection project. The aim of Cryptflix is to help you describe to your friends, family, spouse and the mailman what the heck cryptocurrency is. And you'll study a few things yourself. Right now, I’m just one and only person and need the help of the community to make it better! I’m looking for people to give feedback, add content and become moderators on the CryptFlix. Support this project (BTC address): 1AxAorYBdNzFw1QdhN1MYy7ih7VHowV1Rr
