Our Stack

Free, as in Freedom.

These are the main open-source components we use as a foundation for our products, and the necessary elements for a digital revolution.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin

Bitcoin's novel design and untouchable network-effect provide the censorship-resistance and borderless store-of-value we rely on as an anchor for a new economy. We build on Bitcoin primitives.

Lightning Network

Lightning Network

The Lightning Network enables instant, high-frequency payments on Bitcoin, privately and efficiently, unlocking programmable dynamic commerce for businesses and consumers.

Slashtags

Slashtags

We are building out the Slashtags protocol to unlock self-sovereign web capabilities that enable the next web and an alternative parallel economy.

Hypercore

Hypercore

The Hypercore protocol makes it easy to build fast and modular peer-to-peer applications, with portable data streams by using verifiable append-only logs in a BitTorrent-like distributed network.

Specs for Bitcoin

Practical specs for Bitcoin UX.

Bitcoin And Lightning Layer Specs (BALLS) is an informal group of Bitcoiners working together to establish specifications for Bitcoin, Lightning, and the P2P Web.

LSP Channel Requests

LSP Channel Requests

As Lightning Network technology evolves, Lightning service providers are becoming an important part of Bitcoin infrastructure. The BALLS group created the LSPS.01 spec to establish interoperable an API for channel requests, configurations, and JIT channel creation.

WebBTC & WebLN

WebBTC & WebLN

A common convention in the Bitcoin web application ecosystem is for key management software (“wallets”) to expose their API via a JavaScript object in the web page. These are specs for this common web wallet interface for Bitcoin and Lightning.

LSP Marketplaces

LSP Marketplaces

Expanding on our LSPS.01 spec for LSP services, we have created new specifications for nodes to communicate their available liquidity offers and terms information to liquidity marketplaces to remove friction between liquidity providers and market opportunities.

On-chain Checkout

On-chain Checkout

Accepting 0-confirmation Bitcoin transactions comes with risk. We are working to establish best practices for providing fast on-chain checkout experiences that users demand, while limiting exposure for merchants through our new BALLS-0021 spec and 0-conf guidelines.
