Does anyone know of an exchange like Sparkswap that's avaible outside the United States?
If you don't know sparkswap, it's just an exchange that allows people (in the US, sigh) to buy bitcoin directly over lightning.
Cool talk from RoasBeef.
The part about offline payment verification from LN via Deterministic hashes just blows my mind!
You can have a simple vending machine which accept LN payments.
Okay, i have been thinking of launching a website with most known Lightning Services for a while, and have decided to actually do it now.
So if anyone has some good lightning sites like for example:
* Fiat to Lightning sites
* Services for Lightning
* Sharing of Files
Or anything else that would be relevant on a site like this, please comment them below and i will look into adding them.
I will post when the site is done, in the comments and probably in a seperate post.
The site will be located here on tor:
and here on clearnet:
So i'm trying to setup Sparkswap, if you don't know what it is, It's a place where you can buy bitcoin instantly over lightning without fee's.
To use it you need an LND node, and they list 2 clients they recommend, Zap and Node Launcher.
So i have Zap installed, but it can't find it automatically so that means i have to configure (sparkswap) manually, which means i need both host (localhost), port, TLS Certificate and "Admin Macaroon"?
Does anyone know how to set this up?
Screenshot is provided below.
I just found a bunch of apps by some developer called "Pseudozach" he has the following amazing apps:
"Rewards To Bitcoin"
An app were you can turn your google play rewards into satoshis, which means you can answer short "high" paying surveys for google and turn their credit into satoshis.
You can send transactions from your computer to your phone, without scanning QR codes.
"Send Free Text SMS"
Simple, you watch ads and can send SMS's
Okay, this one i actually have had installed for a while now, it would be great if it catches on. It allows your to share your wifi or data connection for a small ammount of satoshis, or you can use another users data/wifi by paying them a small amount of satoshis.
If you snooze you loose, your satoshis, not an app i will ever install, because i would be ruined in weeks ;), if you don't get up it sends some of your satoshis to someone of your choosing.
The apps can be downloaded from here:
I have a new LN app. Well 2 apps this time.
It's an Android app + Chrome extension combo that lets you pair your phone and browser so that when you click Lightning payment links on your browser the payment request goes to your phone and you can tap it to pay it.
Here's a demo video of me setting it up and 2-tap paying from phone.
"The Lightning Network wallet Zap founder Jack Mallers has announced a new application called Strike that will allow you to make Lightning payments with your debit card or bank account. This means, there will be no wallet, no channels, nodes, swaps or liquidity management anymore..."
"This product can be used to buy Bitcoin and sell it and by simply scanning the QR code and clicking pay, used for remittance payments and for internet tipping as well.
But it isn’t a custodial wallet so if you are hacked and your BTC stolen, then no one can do anything about it and you have completely lost them.
The second layer on the Bitcoin network, Lightning Network offers real-time cheap settlements, where Strike aims to make the barrier of entry low but high flexibility and ease of use."
