Lightning Wikipedia Article
Wikipedia flagged the german article about lightning as "outdated" .. are you up to the task to improve it?
Lightning Browser Extension
During the last hacksprint we started a new Lightning Browser Extension to bring Lightning payments to the browser. The goal is to have a lightweight extension that can connect to multiple node implementations.
In this hacksprint we try to continue working on it and get the extension into an usable state. Any ideas and help welcome (specifically React frontent work... ;)
During the last hacksprint, we started working on the Costanza wallet for Moneysocket. That's now complete.
The challenge this time around is to build a chat application that utilizes Moneysocket. An intro video introduces this project: https://youtu.be/0lsvMAFG2Qk.

We have put together a list of experimental ideas for building on bitcoin in our Lightning Bulb resource. We hope it inspires some great ideas over the weekend. The list includes:
- A native interface to Lightning on the web
- Streaming payments on social platforms
- Distributed storage and retrieval using Lightning
- Distributed compute with Lightning
- Lightning-based metered VPN
- Lightning Paywall Plugin
- Pay-per-use Lightning API calls

Lightning payment based online surveys
Last month I did a survey of impediments of Lightning adoption among Bitcoin companies (happy to share the results). The rate of response was ok but could be better.
Why not leveraging the properties of Lightning with instant and private micro transactions to increase the number of responses?
There is open source survey software available. I am looking for support and team members to integrate Lightning payments (and make it available as a web service ideally)
For example, survey creators can determine the reward per answer upfront. Each answer would display a LNURL-withdraw code for the user to get the sats into their wallet.
Happy about ideas and feedback.
