Sending Tokens Over Bitcoin and Lightning
August 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
📙 Atlanta BitDevs’ reading groups are small sessions where we focus on a specific topic within Bitcoin development and help each other understand it through discussion.
This time, we are going to look at an idea called TARO (Taproot Asset Representation Overlay). Basically, TARO is a way to represent different kinds of assets on bitcoin. These assets could then be sent over the lightning network using existing liquidity.
Olaoluwa Osuntokun from Lightning Labs announced TARO on April 5 to the Lightning-dev mailing list. It includes five BIPs (Bitcoin Improvement Proposals) that would be needed in order to make TARO work.
We’ll be discussing these BIPs in detail over the course of several sessions. Bryan Nonni will be leading us for these sessions. Let’s explore this interesting new idea together!
