Call for Challenges: If you have a lightning project feel free to make it part of this Lightning Hacksprint. Give a me short message with the link to your Github-Repo and start putting the label "hackathon" (yellow) next to issues you like people to join/help for the weekend.
We will do this weekend (Sat & Sun) a online "Lightning Hacksprint" instead of a usual "Lightning Hackday".
It will be a smaller event, putting more focus on contributing to lightning projects. Its mostly coding, but also testing & media documentation is very welcome.

44/ Introducing Bitcoin
In early 2009, Jason noticed his father’s computer processor running 24-7 at full speed. “He mentioned that he was helping someone test a kind of prototype online cash system.That was how he thought of it. It wasn’t real, it was a test for a prototype.”
