It’s time for the first Atlanta BitDevs Socratic Seminar of 2022! Come hang out with Bitcoiners and developers to discuss the latest developments in Bitcoin, Lightning, and related technology.
What is a Socratic Seminar?
Inspired by other BitDevs meetups around the US, our Socratic Seminar events are formatted to foster debate, information sharing and lively discussion.
- Discussion topics are provided ahead of the event
- The event moderator(s) leads the audience through the topics
- Raise your hand to grab the mic and participate in the conversation
- We go to a bar afterwards
This past weekend, members of Atlanta BitDevs participated in the SatsX hackathon and took the Overall Best Prize for PlebFM, an auction-style jukebox where you big over the Lightning network to bump your music to the top of the queue. Alex Lewin of NCR will do a presentation on this project, his motivations for the idea, and what he learned from building it.
Spook Nodes 👻
Pen-testing Lightning – using spook nodes to find unannounced channels.
Whisper Addresses 🕵️♀️

“Spontaneous Ads” are opt-in ads. Advertisers pay over Lightning to post the ad, and users are paid over Lightning in order to have the ads delivered to them. It’s sort of a cut-out-the-middle-man model.
Multi-path LN payment with sub-second runtime ⚡️
Rene Pickhardt was able to compute a multi-path payment flow over the Lightning network in 0.65 seconds.
Fiat Swaps – Lightning based stablecoin 💰
Joko publishes a technique for constructing stablecoins over Lightning and Liquid.
