20. Lightning: ¡Hacia El Zonte… y Mas Alla! {Roy Sheinfeld}

Bitcoin FreiHeit

''Muchos relatos de la historia de El Salvador han pasado por alto y subestimado en gran medida el papel de la Lightning Network. Pero no te confundas: cualquier país podría haber adoptado bitcoin hace cinco u ocho años. La primera capa no ha cambiado mucho. El nuevo ingrediente, la innovación que lo ha hecho posible y abre todo tipo de posibilidades para el futuro, es Lightning.'' Roy SheinfeldHoy indagamos mas en la Lightning Network con un articulo escrito por el fundador de Breez Tech, Roy Sheinfeld.Muchos piensan que la Lightning Network esta en segundo plano con respecto a lo que esta pasando en El Salvador. Pero, es al contrario, La Lightning Network es el centro de todo lo que esta pasando en El Salvador, sin Lightning la ley de Bitcoin no hubiera pasado.Visita el link para el articulo original y otros relacionados que aun no están en este Podcast:https://bitcoinmagazine.com/culture/scaling-lighting-el-zonteTambien puedes dejarnos tus preguntas y sugerencias en: www.bitcoinfreiheit.com/preguntas

#05 - Roy Sheinfeld: The Interface of the Peer to Peer Lightning Economy w/ Breez

Closing the Loop

Today's guest on Closing the Loop is Roy Sheinfeld.  Roy is the CEO and Co-Founder of Breez, a mobile app which aspires to be 'The interface of the peer to peer lightning economy'. Roy and his team have taken a nascent, though still largely intimidating technology, and abstracted away much of the complexity, so that the average user can begin to interact with it, and leverage the tremendous value which the lightning network increasingly represents. Podcasting 2.0, and the value for value model, are important focuses for us here at Closing the Loop, and Breez has been instrumental at making it easy for users to engage this emerging method of content consumption, and for that we're very grateful. For full disclosure, Seetee has been so impressed by what Roy and his team are doing, that we've recently made an investment in Breez, to facilitate the continuation of their amazing work. Enjoy! -- To follow Roy / Breez: TWITTER: https://twitter.com/Breez_Tech WEBSITE: https://breez.technology To follow John / Seetee: TWITTER: https://twitter.com/johnkvallis TWITTER: https://twitter.com/Seetee_io WEBSITE: https://www.seetee.io

Bitcoin Audible

"Many tellings of El Salvador’s story have largely overlooked and understated the role of the Lightning Network. But make no mistake: any country could have adopted bitcoin five or eight years ago. The base layer hasn’t changed much. The new ingredient, the innovation that has made this possible and is opening up all kinds of possibilities for the future, is Lightning.” - Roy SheinfeldToday we dive back into Lightning in another excellent article from Breez Tech founder Roy Sheinfeld exploring how Lightning has brought us to today, and how to scale it to the entire world. Even though it's often thought of as a part of the background regarding the recent El Salvador announcement, to the contrary, it's truly at the center of everything that is happening.
