Interview: Bullish On Lightning Network With Thomas Jestopher

smart summary beta

For this episode of Bitcoin Magazine’s “Meet The Taco Plebs,” I was joined by Thomas Jestopher (@Jestopher_BTC), a Lightning Network enthusiast and co-host of “Bitcoin Kindergarten.”.

We discussed the entrepreneurial opportunities that pop up thanks to Lightning and how people can become more independent from taking tips on the second layer solution.

Once I had actually bought bitcoin, I started listening to “The Internet Of Money,” Andreas Antonopoulos’s book, and the combination of concepts behind bitcoin resonated with me so deeply, between the disruptive power of technology and the humanitarian benefits derived from a completely opt-in protocol, immune to the policy decisions of banks and corporations.

One phrase that came to mind early in my bitcoin journey was “Never before has greed tempted me to live a very simple life.” As soon as I said it in a bitcoin chat, another bitcoiner responded with a bright orange image with my freshly-quoted words strewn across it.

The most amazing thing about Bitcoin is that it inspires innovation.

While bitcoin seems intimidating at first, the fact that it is so resistant to change makes it a solid platform to build on.

Bitcoin will stay true to its roots, which makes it easier to launch a successful business and to create specialized tools.

I’m most looking forward to watching the Taproot activation play out, which will give me some good clues about whether or not other protocol changes that specifically benefit Lightning will get implemented.

I’m a terrible trader, which is the primary reason I only HODL bitcoin, but I’d guess that the end of 2021 will be in a mania phase and we’ll see bitcoin over $400,000
