Joe Consorti is a Bitcoin market analyst who recently wrote a great article called The Time Value of the Lightning Network.
In our discussion, we got into the time value of money and how it applies to the Lightning Network, we discussed Lightning banks, and we explored the idea of generating yield on Lightning today, and using things like Taro in the future.
