⚡ Bitcoin Lightning Network Hackday New York City

Welcome to the fourth Bitcoin Lightning Network Hackday on October 27th and 28th in New York City! This will be the fourth of a series of Hackdays that we'll host to explore and discover the Lightning Network! #LightningHackdayNYC

The Hackday is inspired by the idea of Barcamps and Unconferences. This means: The more you put in, the more you get out! Explore, learn, share, build!

This will be a technical event, so be ready to nerd away! Please only sign up if you actually plan to attend, even if you have a free ticket. This will make planning a lot easier for us.
