Read_732 – We Need More Apps With Lightning, Not More Lightning Apps [Roy Sheinfeld]

“Permission can only be denied if it is requested. Direct, peer-to-peer interaction obviates permission and equalizes market power. Don’t request permission to transact; transact. Don’t tinker with the system; supersede it.” — Roy Sheinfeld

Today we dive into a great piece just dropped from Roy Shienfeld with a great way to think both about Bitcoin and lightning adoption by the mainstream, and also about the path and direction forward to bring the most utility to the most people. Don’t build another lightning app, build apps, and attach them to lightning. This is much easier than most realize with the Breez SDK; no licenses, no custody, no maintaining wallet infrastructure, just implement and go. We win by putting this in developers hands. Don’t miss this one if you want to understand more!
