If You’re Against BOLT12, You’re Just Against Getting More Women Into Bitcoin
Harsh words spoken verbatim by lightning developer Niftynei.
It’s complicated and Niftynei does not make it easy to decipher, but basically:
BOLT12 is a suggestion (BOLTs are like BIPs for the lightning network) that we make QR codes that are reusable and carry more information that can be used the other way around. Instead of just having a single invoice, a BOLT12 invoice can allow the merchant to offer a refund without any further data from the customer, for example. Read more about BOLT12 at https://bolt12.org/ , the only bitcoin lightning protocol ever to include the warning:
DO NOT GET AN OFFER TATTOO UNTIL SPEC IS FULLY RATIFIED!
Anyway, Niftynei thinks it will help with shopping, and women love to shop, so yay!
save them (the women) from fiat, let them spend in satsNiftynei
I feel that Niftynei is right. What do you think? Mo’ shoppin’ mo’ women?
