The Kevin Rooke Show

Calle is a Lightning developer who has worked on a handful of Lightning projects, including Lightning Tip Bot, LNBits, and Cashu.

In our conversation we talked about the Cambrian explosion of Lightning development happening lately, the importance of open source software, e-cash mints, and we did a deep-dive into the work Calle is doing on LNBits and Cashu today.

Great pod. few things 1. I doubled my boost because I saw almost half goes to opensats! amazing! 2. I tried LN bits many times but using it behind tor is a bummer. having to do all this complex tunneling sucks. 3. I hope stacker news can implement a e-cash mint to protect privacy!
