is the first-of-its-kind (I think?) Value4Value multi-author blog based on BOLT12 Prisms. BOLT12 is pretty new and not widely adopted yet, but I wanted to build on top of BOLT12 since it's the hot new thing.

At the same time, I was working with a meetup friend from the Rocket City Bitcoiners. We tried to create a multi-author blog using BTCPay Server, but got stuck. I wasn't satisfied with the payment and accounting flow, and the BTCPay Server Prism implementation only supported LNURL. I try to avoid unnecessary dependencies (e.g., web server). When things can be done natively in Lightning Network–I use that instead.

To address these challenges, we set out to devise a solution which we call BOLT12 Prisms. is the result of that effort.

The ghost website is a Sovereign Stack-hosted website. The uses a submodule of Sovereign Stack called LNPlay which I developed in 2023.

You can learn more about LNPlay at was built by farscapian and Justin Rocket with the Rocket City Bitcoiners.

LNPlay deploys Clams Remote as the primary user interface that connects to the data plane. And since Remote added direct links, we can provide end-users a single link (which can be printed out as a QR code) that directs them to Clams Remote controlling their dedicated node.
