Help spread Lightning Adoption by using the LNtipbot. It works great.

The Bitcoin Lighting network has been up and running on mainnet for almost a year. There are over 16000 lightning channels open today. (https://p2sh.info/dashboard/db/lightning-network?orgId=1).

Have you tried it?

Some people are too lazy to give it a try. Give them an incentive by sending some bitcoin over the Lightning Network using the lntipbot.

You can find instructions here;

https://www.reddit.com/r/lntipbot/wiki/index

The more people giving tips the more likely someone is to setup a LN wallet and join the network – Either as a way to withdraw or to add to their balance and pass on the favor.

There are over 1 million r/bitcoin subscribers. If only 10% were encouraged to open a lighting channel the network would grow substantially.

These type of micro transactions are the perfect use case for Lighting. [Near] free and instant medium of exchange.

If your interested in setting up a Lightning wallet, but don't have much technical knowledge (like me) try the Bitcoin Lighting App for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lightning.walletapp&hl=en_US).

This app supports sending and receiving Lighting payments. Receiving requires some spare capacity in a channel.

It would be awesome if we could get this implemented on some other crypto subs to help spread awareness.

thanks u/drmoore718 for the great work.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

In Quest for Digital Gold: Despite the rise and fall of various alt coins and fork considerations, ‘time’ works FOR bitcoin, not AGAINST it. Every day it doesn’t disappear, it gets one step closer to a permanent status of digital gold.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I just want to say how happy it makes me that people on both sides are doing responsible disclosure of critical vulnerabilities. This works out better for EVERYONE.

Both sides of the camp very vehemently disagree with each other and say incredibly unkind things to each other and treat each other very poorly, but I can't even express how happy it makes me that at the end of the day people realize that it is in everyone's best interest to look out for one another. Cory Fields pointed out in his write up that no matter what he thinks about bitcoin cash it is in his and the project he has an affinity for's best interest to responsibly disclose bugs to them because in the future it may turn out to be the case that someone on the other side will have information about a critical vulnerability that he would like to have responsibly disclosed as well. Fast forward to today and here we are. A critical vulnerability was found in bitcoin core and it was indeed responsibly disclosed to them and not kept hidden or sold or exploited.

I don't think I can even express how important this is for both bitcoin cash and bitcoin core. I really hope this continues into the future or we are going to be headed in the direction of an inevitable disaster.

Thank you so much to both cory fields and awemany for setting such a precident on both sides. I hope this continues to be the case into the future.
