The lightning network took a long time to really develop into what we were waiting for. In fact it is still maturing but it is now to the point where we are building layer three apps on top of Lightning’s layer two. That is a fancy way of saying, we are using bitcoin to monetize what we commonly call “smart phone apps”.
Consider apps like Fountain.fm, Breez, etc that monetize podcasting. Users earn sats, send sats and communicate with hosts. But this is just the beginning there are already apps like Geyser for example that are creating ways to do crowd funding with leveraging the Lightning Network.
So what is next? That is what I have these two amazing guys on to discuss today. The truth though is, there is no reason we can’t or that we won’t monetize pretty much every app out there. What will that look like though? Tune in today as we mull over that very question.
