Join Car and Keyan to discuss Stacker News top posts, Car & Keyan's favorite posts of the week, and top stackers.

We discuss:
  1. Jack Dorsey has been nostr pilled! His nostr pubkey is even in his Twitter bio. After writing a long form article titled a native internet protocol for social media, laying out the mistakes he made at Twitter and how decentralization prevents them, benthecarman made him aware of nostr. Soon he donated 14BTC to nostr and its creator fiatjaf to be deploy as laid out in this google doc. Nostr relays are melting from the flood of recent traffic. tldr Real recognizes real.
  2. Breez raised $4.5 million in funding led by Ego Death Capital and Entrée Capital. Breez has front run most Lightning applications, being the first company to provide sat streaming for podcasts and an early Point of Sale solution alongside its non-custodial mobile wallet. This latest raise has Breez graduating to a Lightning as a Service (LaaS) company.
  3. Lucent Labs announced a beta for Bolt Node and Bitcoin Cache. While details are fairly scant, the services are familiar but geared toward enterprise with promises of being Open Source. Bolt Node appears to be a Voltage-like service with more templating and automation, and Bitcoin Cache appears to be a multi-sig solution, perhaps like Casa's.
  4. My name is Gregor, I was born in 2122. AMA "I am what your generation calls a "time traveler", I can answer anything for the next 48 hours. Please note that questions about the value of assets existing in your time and mine, sports scores or anything to speculate on will be ignored for safety."
and why Car is bullish on Nostr this week. For the week of Dec 16th, 2022.
