Every time some new technology comes around and disrupts everything, we look back and say, “Dammit, I wish I could see it and have invested in it earlier, or developed a service, a product, something.”
Well, this time it’s the Bitcoin Lightning network.
It is the killer new app. It’s the internet, it’s the wheel, it’s the invention of fire by Prometheus. Okay, that last one stole the technology from the gods, but that’s how it feels.
Lightning is a technology stolen from Zeus himself.
When you start to play around with it, just use it every day, find ways to keep using it, onboard new people with a custodial lightning wallet like Breez, you see how it’s the next BIG thing.
I am not kidding. It is mindblowing. Streaming money, permissionless payments, instant payments around the world, tipping creators, supporting the content you love, voting by putting your sats where your money is, and a ton of new applications we haven’t even thought of yet.
If you plan to make something for the next fifty years, build it on lightning.
