  1. Introduction (Neha Narula, Director MIT DCI). Presenting an argument why L2 scaling matters (on-chain doesn't scale). youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=262

  2. The Near Future of Lightning (Connor Fromknecht, Lightning Labs). An overview of lightning, discussing amps, splicing, watchtowers (encrypted blobs). youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=918

  3. Non-Custodial Crypto-to-Crypto Trading (Sharon Goldberg, Commonwealh Crypto Inc.), discussing ideas for decentralized exchanges. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=2488

  4. Discreet Log Contracts (Tadge Dryja, MIT). An overview of the tech, similar to talks at previous events, and a demo. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=4321

  5. Using Truebit for verifying offchain computations (Sami Makela, Truebit). Taking computation off-chain and only using the blockchain for disputes. Low on technical details. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=5944

  6. Panel on State Channels (five participants). Talking about different state channel solutions and how they operate. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=7849

  7. Interledger, L2, L3, and Beyond (Evan Schwartz, Ripple engineer). A layer between L2 solutions (seems excessive to me). youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=11315

  8. Scriptless Scripts (Andrew Poelstra, Blockstream). Basic overview, plus blind atomic swaps, zero knowledge contingency payments, Lightning payment hops. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=12965

  9. Building yalls.org with Lightning (Alex Bosworth, Lightning App Dev). Discussing real problems from implementing Lightning micropayments, and possible mitigations. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=14570

  10. Fireside Chat (Elizabeth Stark, Lightning Labs). Her experience working on Lightning. youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=15969

My three favorite talks (chronological):

  1. The Near Future of Lightning youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=918

  2. Scriptless Scripts youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=12965

  3. Building yalls.org with Lightning youtu.be/jzoS0tPUAiQ?t=14570
