Lightning HackSprint December 2020
To spice up your holiday time between Christmas & New Years we will do our 4th Lightning Hacksprint this time as a 3 day event from 27th to 29th of december. Its an online event aimed at improving and experimenging on the Bitcoin Lightning Network. Following the spirit of the "Bitcoin Lightning Network Hackday", the focus will be on contributing to already existing Lightning Network projects. It's mostly coding, but also testing and media documentation (e.g. tutorials, moderated discussions, etc.) is very welcome.
You can join this hacksprint for free without any ticket. If you also like to join the rC3 (Remote Chaos Computer Congress) 402 Payment Required assembly that is happening at the same time, make sure to get a free rC3 ticket as long as they are available.
This Wiki was created to collect all important information around the event and for the later documentation of outcomes. Feel free to create your own project subpage.
