Konstantin is the co-founder of Kollider, a Lightning-powered Bitcoin derivatives platform that also offers a browser extension wallet, synthetic fiat stablecoins, and a paid Nostr relay.
In our conversation, we explored the value of instant settlement on Bitcoin exchanges, how Kollider’s wallet and subscription-based Nostr relay works, and how all the different pieces of Kollider’s business fit together.
