This was created to collect all important information around the event and for the later documentation of outcomes.

The Lightning Hacksprint is an online event aimed at improving & experimenting on the Bitcoin Lightning Network. Following the spirit of the "Bitcoin Lightning Network Hackday", the focus will be on contributing to already existing open source Lightning Network projects. It's mostly coding, but also testing and media documentation (e.g. tutorials, moderated discussions, etc.) is very welcome.

Tools & Links

These are the tools we will use during the HackSprint:

  • Fulmo-Mattermost a OpenSource Slack for group chats & basic coordination during the HackSprint
  • Fulmo-Jitsi setup a video chat room for your project or session. You can share your screen and also stream to YouTube if needed.
  • to document this event and the outcomes of your projects.

You can edit the sub-sections of this wiki if you create a new user and then pay a small amount of satohis to gain edit-rights at our new Lightning Spam-Protection PlugIn (thx 2 pseudozach).


Challenges are the main focus of the Lighting Hacksprint - pick a project you find interesting and help on their challenges.

See the list of Challenges and join the projects chatroom to get started. You can freely spectate, join or leave one or multiple challenges - there are no strict rules.


If you would like to incentivize someone to deliver on a specific challenge, you can put up a bounty. It should be clear under what conditions a bounty is granted, otherwise just be creative!

See the list of Bounties so far.
