Stacking Sats on the Lightning Network

In this post, I want to shine a light on the growing ecosystem of apps that let anyone with an internet connection stack sats and participate in the Lightning Network economy.

There are dozens of easy ways to start stacking sats, including simple activities like playing games, engaging on social media platforms, and reading content (which many of us already do without being paid), as well as other ways to earn that more closely represent jobs, such as performing micro-tasks or publishing podcasts.

As with all things in life, you get what you put in, so the more sats you want to earn on Lightning, the more work you should expect to do.

These platforms won’t help you get rich quick, but they will allow you to get onboarded to the Lightning Network in minutes, and start moving sats around the quickly expanding Lightning ecosystem without needing to set up a node, use an exchange, or have any technical knowledge of how Bitcoin works.

Final Thoughts

The biggest adoption challenge that Lightning Network apps face today is getting more sats in the hands of more people. Paying users offers a natural solution to this problem, and I expect to see many more Lightning apps use this strategy to onboard new users and disrupt legacy competitors that have to deal with burdensome fixed costs and time delays to make payments.
