    > But if anyone has great ideas for "securing registrations" that not even Google or Facebook etc has thought of, by all means share Lightning payment required for registration

  2. bkil

    Many have thought of that in the past, it is also mentioned in the notes.

  3. jc

    bkil: could you please link the notes? I haven't read the whole chat history

  4. bkil

    Oh, sorry, I just double checked and this part isn't translated to English yet.

    I've been thinking of adding support to Converse for rendering lightning QR codes. Then one can set up BTCPay server and write an XMPP server module that fetches invoices from BTCPay and sends them to the user who wants to sign up

    can we please keep the blockchain/cryptocurrency talk away from this channel? You can create one to talk there

  7. jc

    It's relevant to the discussion

  8. msavoritias

    ponzi schemes are not relevant to the operators room yes.

  9. jc

    Now you are actually detailing the discussion

  10. jc

    Now you are actually derailing the discussion

    jc: that is a good idea for server support, not that I'd like to see *no* free public servers

    jc: you could reframe this as conditioning membership on an arbitrary API call

  13. jc

    Except that it's not an arbitrary API call.
