Lightning is not a solution, try again.

Tao Jones



Don’t use LN if you don’t want to loose, simple use things that already work with instant transactions like BCH/BSV !

Mathieu G.

don't get rekt trying LN kids,
BCH for the win

Felix Herrmann

Ouch, just use Nano.


Really still is in beta. People need to stop pushing it as a finished project.


Dude! You look smart to me and you probably know more about severak crypto's inner workings than me atm. Though I am probably wiser in user experience (and economics - call me blunt). This is key to mass adoption and where the money will go. Do you expect ma and pa can handle LN? So an honest rhetorical question -LN fanboys will certainly do this for you: Why ffs flogging a dead horse when there are other already working alternatives? Concluding: LN fanboys help this guy out, prove me wrong, or you and your product suck!


Just use Nano.


Your pain will be others gain :)

Hong Kun Yan

Why use Lightning Network?  Use Decentralized exchange to send BTC is better


I like Bitcoin but Nano is superior :)

When fees hit $50 per tx in 2017 I had to give up on BTC for my business. But I was told by Back and heaps of others to stop complaining as these high fees were good for bitcoin and I should just wait for lightning. Well, I waited. And lightning finally arrived and it’s a mess. Not only do you need a computer science degree to be able to operate it safely but it doesn’t function the way people actually use money, especially for unidirectional payments. I realised BTC simply can’t be used for commerce, and I moved on.

Jon Southurst

All I want is to use bitcoin, on-chain and in any amount, just like I was supposed to. Payment channels (even when we finally get a working one) are useful in some cases but not all.

Lightning network is so bad it's insane that anyone believe that it's a scaling solution. Sad. Meanwhile i'm enjoying fast and secure transactions using BITCOIN CASH. Awesome UX.

John Eakin

Where'd you buy the t-shirt?


See? It's too complicated for adoption. Great. so big blocks wins. Make bitcoin cash again. We only lost 5 years because of this shit.

clive mossmoon

You never say what you did wrong to have your money stolen other than "tried to use the Lightning Network." You didn't backup your channel state? Oy vey, what a nightmare.

In my own experience, I have come to know it’s risky and not profitable to hold your coins while waiting for the eventual Bull Run. I advise all to accumulate as much as you can thereby increasing your portfolio. There are two ways to go about it, firstly either by dollar-cost averaging and secondly trading bitcoin which is very efficient and very profitable if done the right way. I trade daily though I am not an expert trader a smart one because I created a strategy that works for me, I trade under the guidance of Mr Ryan Brooks he provides trading signals for me daily. He is one of the best signal providers and within my first 2 weeks of using his system, I had increased my portfolio from 2 BTC to 6 BTC. After meeting Ryan it’s been a wining and profit streak for me and you can reach him through Whatsapp; ‬+447476090146, tele-gram: @TradeConnect1

Can we talk about the fricken MASSIVE empty mansion that Jack is beaming in from.

@anthonypompliano please please please get another CO-HOST that actually understands what are you talking about :/

They just controlled the bitcoin money flow there..


Excuse me, did anyone understand how the company Strike, covers its cost, to offer its service free? ... and how it makes profit?


I’m pretty sure Western Union is thrilled about this whole idea.

Jack, I just bought $200 using Strike (via Fold) for an Amazon gift card. Not only did I not get cash back, I was charged $200.47 for using Lightning. What gives?

ben hieroo

Heavy head and sensitive ear, i like this guy !


Holy crap with the ads man come on

Topper Rob

Man pomp, that yt advertisings broke my heart

Kurt Jensen

Hm, can't find Strike in the App Store.. I am currently in Denmark, it's definitely not here.

Natoshi Sakamoto

What about just sending Bitcoin?

Daniel Dynak

Great video. Just don't like people calling out Vitalik on false marketing to pump price........He was the only one in 2017 that clearly said that the market cap was not earned. That the price was getting past the technology at the time. I am a guy that help bags and never sold for years. Vitalik was the only person that said prices were over valued. Respect! Yes, ETH is all over the place still, but excited in coming years.

Roy Wessbecher

Can Strike take an automatic SSA payment and covert %-wise to Bitcoin?
How to? Maybe Swan can do it? Differences?


the number if ads on this video is insane.

Steve M.

great interview ... more more more! cool to hear Jack's humility.

DowskiVision MagicalOracle

Who decided to clone Pauly Shore? This guy is SUCH a leftist simp .... "they're just human beings, they mean you no harm". Ha ha ha you mean like NAZIs or Trotskyites or the member of an other country's armed forces or a sociopath? I hate to break the psychological science news to this schlub but there are "human beings" in this world who measure their self-worth by how much harm they can cause to others AND the highest concentration of those individuals can be found in politics or the finance/banking sector!


Like this guy. Humble, smart. Cool hat, too. Thanks Pomp!


Awesome interview Pomp.

Chris Chilcoat

XRP is done.

How do we invest in what this guy is doing? Is there a “lightning” coin or something?

C Groff

Jack really raises the bar, a truly inspiring and motivational human


like the guys get up and go. surely it makes a margin on the spread of bitcoin to fina. fina to bitcoin, send overseas, convert back to fina. Still dont see how this will pass KYC and AML requirements. In my country, if a bank account is opened by a US Citizen, I basically have to know if they scrunch or folds when taking a shit. Can ses this getting crushed by regulators if it grows. the fact is has 'no tax implications' sounds like if it becomes any of size, it will be crushed.

The amount of ads on this is crazy

Are there plans to translate the book? Could that be a contribution?

We from the front for the liberation of chicken hate the chicken liberation front. Much much more than you. We just do.

Owain Edwards

Definitely need to do this again

A wrapped BTC smart contract seems like a better solution than the complexity of running a Lightning Network node.

Could you equalise both audio when you have guests? That will improve our experience for sure.

Question 11 seems a vulnerability

Darryl Giors

Rene if he doesn't get a mic upgrade would benefit from some EQ. Particularly high pass at 200Hz or so to cut some of the boominess. Boost around 1kHz as well.

Pablo Magister

Is there a future for Bitcoin Cash?

C Groff

Kahoots rule! The day I found out about Kahoots was like a 6 on the day I found out about Bitcoin scale lol
