In this episode Ricki chats to Welsh Bitcoiner Ben Arc. Ben has spent the past few years developing open source, cheap and easily accessible DIY hardware devices to enable Lightning transactions across a whole host of real world applications, including point of sale terminals, vending machines and ATMs (to name a few). Ben was also instrumental in getting LNBits off the ground. LNBits is an open source software stack which facilitates all kinds of use cases of the Lightning Network interoperating with DIY hardware devices and decentralized systems.
