Plebnet is a group of independent lightning network enthusiasts who have created an amazing community, with the intention of introducing people to lightning network and having them become intermediate to expert lightning operators over time.

I would recommend anyone serious about diving into Lightning Network head first to start here:

Interesting Lightning Projects

  • Eltoo

    • A proposal to make gigantic improvements to lightning. Requires a change to the bitcion network protocol (tricky!)

  • Sphinx Chat

    • Chat and Pay over lightning, Podcasting 2.0?

  • BOLT 12

  • Impervious AI

    • A “Layer 3” network on top of Lightning? A decentralized VPN? What is going on here!?
