Aljaz is the CEO and Co-Founder of BoltObserver, software which provides monitoring and management services for lightning nodes. He's also the co-founder of the Bitcoin Ljubljana meetup, and has worked in the bitcoin space for several years.

He is another guest who booked themselves on the podcast (really enjoying this approach so far), and we had a great discussion about bitcoin in Slovenia, lightning node management and the potential risks of centralization and 'regulatory capture', approaches to bitcoin development and promotion generally, and much more.
