  1. If I’m an employee that does not own a single sat and my employer wanted to pay my first paycheque via lightning.

    How would that happen as I wouldn’t be able to open a channel as I have no funds.

  2. Check out some of the layer 3 apps that are running on top of lightning:

    – [Sphinx](https://sphinx.chat/). Decentralized chat/social media/etc, you can even sell your texts/photos/media out of the box. All using sats.

    – [Juggernaut](https://www.getjuggernaut.com/). Similar to sphinx. All using sats.

    – [impervious](https://www.impervious.ai/). P2P everything with payments built-in. All based on lightning.

    – [Login with your lightning wallet instead of user/pass](https://lightninglogin.live/)

    – [lightning address](https://lightningaddress.com/). Make your own lightning address for simpler payments in lightning.

    – [zebedee API](https://zebedee.io/developers/api). API to use sats as micro-payments in games.

    – If you ever need to send a fax, [you can do it with lightning](https://bitcoinfax.net/)

    – And if you need to send an SMS instead, [here’s how to send it with lightning](https://lnsms.world/)

    Happy ⚡!
