We just moved into the new lab and have already begun working towards phase II of Pleb Lab. This will be one of many announcements will be making over the course of August.
At Pleb Lab we firmly believe that supporting developers is key for bitcoin to continue on.
Free and open-source development is critical to breakthroughs in bitcoin. The FOSS ethos aligns with our core mission at Pleb Lab since our early days.
Today we would like to formerly announce FOSS Residency at the new Pleb Lab to Super Testnet. Super Testnet is a wizard among wizards. He has an enormous amount of impact inside of Pleb Lab and in our city of Austin. Super has been with Pleb Lab before there was a 7x12 office space. He has relentlessly been contributing to bitcoin at a phenomenal rate and gives unconditionally. He is a constant inspiration to us all.
What does this FOSS Residency mean?
- Pleb Lab is supporting anything and everything Super would like to build on bitcoin inside of The Lab.
- He also plans to assist developers at The Lab and also plans to create workshops around the tools he uses and creates.
Here is a list of some of his recent inventions:
Tor talker - A tor proxy for connecting to lnbits and/or lnd over tor, with functions for getting and checking invoices
Bull run - Ridesharing software powered by bitcoin payments and the lightning network
Lightning escrow - A website that uses hodl contracts for an escrow service
