We discuss Stacker News top posts, Car & Keyan's favorite posts of the week, top stackers, and so much more for the week of December 9th, 2022.
Join Car and Keyan to discuss Stacker News top posts, Car & Keyan's favorite posts of the week, and top stackers.

We discuss:
  1. Want to learn how to build a Lightning wallet? Pleb Lab's PlebDev course teaches you how to do just that - and without prior programming knowledge. Even if you don't need the course, I still recommend watching the promo video for the giggles.
  2. You can easily create your own Cashu ecash mint using LNBits. Based on the shared twitter thread, it sounds like Calle also has plans to support ecash transfers between mints.
  3. To Max Webster's relief, @brugeman is working on Lightning powered search. It's an early proof of concept, but according to the about page and his replies on the announcement post, the plan is to charge Bitcoin for searches, use Bitcoin for ranking, and by some means split revenue with the websites in search results.
  4. @super_testnet shows us how to write bounded loops, aka instructions that repeat a finite number of times, in bitcoin script. While it's known to be theoretically possible, Super couldn't find an implementation so he wrote one. The resulting script is predictably cumbersome, but it's a loop in bitcoin script.
  5. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is limiting cash withdrawals for individuals to N100k ($225) and N500k ($1,325) for businesses. The limits are an attempt to move Nigeria to a cashless society and encourage Nigerians to use alternatives like mobile banking and the eNaira CBDC.
and why Car is not missing super testnet this week. For the week of December 9th, 2022.
