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

We discuss:
  1. Trust is a Scaling Solution is a collection of essays on trust by futurepaul packaged in a brutal, nostalgic design. Why and who do we trust? Why do we betray trust? How does trust relate to money? Paul provides insight.
  2. Someone exploited a vulnerability in Robosats' on-chain swap feature earning themselves 5m sats. The vulnerability has since been closed, and was apparently caused by a race condition.
  3. LNBits shows you how to make a nostr hardware wallet for $10. They also sell them pre-made with a case for $20.
  4. Before micropayments were technically possible (ie pre-Lightning), the internet's visionaries dismissed micropayments on the grounds of decision fatigue. Brandon Lucas surveys the history of micropayments and the tech that might change it in Micropayments and the Lightning Network.
  5. Most of use now know Silicon Valley Bank has been taken over by the FDIC following a bank run. @felix provides a short explainer in ELI5 – What's happened to Silicon Valley Bank? ☠️.
