435: Bitcoin Solves the AI Payments Problem with Kody Low

Kody Low is the Head of Developer and Product Support at Fedi and is on the cutting edge of the intersection of bitcoin, the lightning network, Fedimints, and AI. He joins the show to breakdown Fedimints and what they mean for scaling bitcoin, how lightning is really the IP layer of the "bitcoin stack", and why the lightning network is uniquely suited to solve the massive payments problem that the emerging AI industry is running into. If you want to learn how lighting is actually driving value by perfecting payments, this is the rip for you.
