We discuss Stacker News top posts, Car & Keyan favorite posts of the week, top stackers and so much more for the week of October 14th, 2022.
Join Car and Keyan to discuss Stacker News top posts, Car & Keyan favorite posts of the week, and top stackers.

We discuss:
  1. Tony Giorgio, owner of Tony's World Famous Pizza and lightning developer and researcher, launched LNsploit. Written in Rust and using LDK, LNsploit is like metasploit, a software exploit suite, but focused on Lightning exploits. With a little help from his frens - Paul Miller, w3irdrobot, and ben carman - LNsploit allows you to exploit the recent LND sync bug and has plans to allow channel jamming, probing, attempts to steal funds, and more.
  2. Musician Joe Martin released his latest country single, High Gravity, using bitcoin in a Value for Value model. Joe writes "there is a better way for artists to monetise their music than just simply uploading to Spotify, Apple or Youtube" and setup a BTCPay tipping portal to accept bitcoin for the single.
  3. Jam, a user interface for Join Market, released a sleek landing page: Join Market is a CoinJoin tool without a centralized coordinator and Jam is a high quality interface for it. Aside: whenever Jam does a release I think of this book about an apocalyse caused by a strawberry jam flood.
  4. Homeless Mokum returns to write about their winter living situation in Amsterdam amidst signficant debt, 17.1% inflation in the Netherlands, and soaring energy costs. Stacking sats all the while, ~500/day, Homeless Mokum has been sleeping in a friend's attic while paying off their debts.
  5. LND experienced a bug preventing nodes from syncing the chain following the broadcast of a very large, 998 of 999 multisig Tapscript transaction. The script exceeded LND's expectations of script size, which doesn't apply to Taproot scripts. The bug was quickly fixed in LND v0.15.2-beta and you should update.
  6. nvk, CEO and Cofounder of Coinkite, did an AMA. We learn about NVK's view of Lightning hardware devices, the best wallets for Coldcard, how phone manufacturers will add Bitcoin wallets, wen Coldcard password management, and more!
and why Keyan missed TABconf this year. For the week of October 14th, 2022.
