Hooray, two pages I worked on got merged this week, Sign in with bitcoin
, and Settings
. The former is really the more exciting one. From the responses I’ve seen, it seems like not many are aware that authentication and payments on third-party services via lightning wallets are a real thing. I see a lot of potential in this, and a lot of groundwork being laid. We’ll need a lot of experimentation to figure out the right things to build with/on this.
Talking about experimentation, a few people have been discussing
about organizing a bitcoin design hackathon for a while now. Looks like it might happen in October, loosely coordinated with a few other hackathons/events/conferences. We’ll have to quickly plan this out and hopefully have a solid concept by end of next week, with a proposal for the whole community. I see it as a reason to set aside the day-to-day for a bit and just focus on the creative, bold, weird, etc ideas and concepts that each of us toy with sometimes but never quite find the time for. Should be fun.
Back to the guide, next week we should be able to merge 3 more bigger PRs. Nice to see those coming together.
Was nice to see the Bitcoin Core App team represented at Surfin’ Bitcoin
