On this episode of BlockChannel, Mckie and Dee invite back Olaoluwa Osuntokun, CTO of Lightning Labs, and technical advisor to Amentum Capital. Their team recently scaled bitcoin payments in a huge way, and have released the Lightning Pool, and a decentralized money market for Bitcoin to find a real-time lending rate. The Lightning Pool combines a myriad of technologies the Lightning engineering team and community have worked on, and allows Lightning to be more friendly for mainstream usage. Try to keep up as Olaoluwa breaks down exactly how it all works. You’ll need to watch this episode twice…
