What have you done for Bitcoin today? ⚑

#7DaysOfBitcoin is an individual challenge leading up to the #LightningHacksprint on March 27th/28th 2021. It starts on Sunday, March 21st 2021 and ends on Sunday, March 28th 2021.

The goal 🏁

The goal is to challenge yourself for 7 days to consciously contribute something to the greater Bitcoin and Lightning Network ecosystem. This is not a competition but a personal (micro-) challenge. Step out of your comfort zone or just push yourself to do a little thing you normally wouldn't do. Or a little more of what you normally do. Try to create some value for yourself and everyone else.

No worries, you don't need to reinvent the wheel. We all have different paces, one small step for you might be a giant leap for someone else. πŸš€

  • buy Bitcoin
