I just helped a fellow student with an exercise in binary exploits.
He struggled for days and wanted to thank me by spending me a meal. I mentioned that this is similar to how we do bitcoin tips just in a bigger fashion. He said he could pay me in bitcoin or cardano but using bitcoin would probably cost too much. Then I asked if he has a lightning wallet and he said no.
How to best onboard new users without paying too much tx fees?
I know mempool cooled down since a few weeks ago but tx using 8sat/vB don't go through yet, for example (at least mine has not gone through for days).
How would you best onboard a new user to lightning right now?
Ask them to post good content on SN to earn sats? (Not sure if serious, haha. But maybe that's indeed a good idea)
