- Jack Dorsey has been nostr pilled! His nostr pubkey is even in his Twitter bio. After writing a long form article titled a native internet protocol for social media, laying out the mistakes he made at Twitter and how decentralization prevents them, benthecarman made him aware of nostr. Soon he donated 14BTC to nostr and its creator fiatjaf to be deploy as laid out in this google doc. Nostr relays are melting from the flood of recent traffic. tldr Real recognizes real.
- Breez raised $4.5 million in funding led by Ego Death Capital and Entrée Capital. Breez has front run most Lightning applications, being the first company to provide sat streaming for podcasts and an early Point of Sale solution alongside its non-custodial mobile wallet.

- @santos, self-proclaimed autodidact, teased Emeralize, a product that's "like Substack x Udemy x meets Lightning Network" with a planned launch date of 1/3/23. Global money meets global learning? Sounds good to me.
- Lucent Labs announced a beta for Bolt Node and Bitcoin Cache. While details are fairly scant, the services are familiar but geared toward enterprise with promises of being Open Source. Bolt Node appears to be a Voltage-like service with more templating and automation, and Bitcoin Cache appears to be a multi-sig solution, perhaps like Casa's.
