Lightning Coffee Project


A community supported, peer to peer project for Orange Pilling and Educating people about Bitcoin & Lightning at Festivals, Farmers Markets and Cafes etc.

But there is a catch. The punter only gets the FREE Coffee if they purchase it with Sats, and the punter has no Sats. 

The deal? They download and install a lightning wallet on their phone. We send them the price of a coffee, in sats, instantly. Just this action will blow them away. FREE Sats = FREE Coffee (or whatever tipple floats their boat).

It will be their first experience with Bitcoin. And Lightning. Then as they ponder what has just happened, whilst drinking their Brew, they do, more often than they do not, hunger for more. We will be there to offer advice, literature and guidance.

To continue to Orange-Pill we would appreciate your support.

Lightning Coffee Project was born out of a conversation at Bitcoin Hideaway.

I had heard of Bitcoin but I've never had it put in front of my face like this. I was suprised at how easy it was to download the wallet, and was even more suprised when the Lightning Coffee Project sent me 15,000 Sats. Even though it was only the price of a coffee having 15,000 in my wallet made me feel rich, and it put a pep in my step. Now I want more Bitcoin. More Satoshis. I've got the bug.

Featured In Your Wallet

Get Bitcoin into your Wallet. One Bitcoin is divisible by One Hundred Million Satoshis (Sats), just like One Dollar is has 100 cents. You can buy 50,000 Sats (€12 – Approximate Market Price 13/05/2023), just to get started. Add to your stash as and when you can afford it. One day you may reach 100,000,000 Satoshis A.K.A. One Whole Bitcoin.

Why Give out Free Satoshis?

This strategy involves offering the value of a free coffee (in Satoshis) to potential Bitcoin adopters who downloaded the app/lightning wallet at your prompting, in your presence. By offering this incentive, the we can drive lightning app/wallet downloads and engage with people who might not have tried Bitcoin before. This can lead to increased Bitcoin loyalty and a possible increase in lifetime adoption. 

However, it is important to note that this strategy should be used in conjunction with other tactics to drive ongoing Bitcoin adoption engagement and retention. Additionally, we should ensure that the app/wallet is easy to use and provides value to the user to encourage long-term usage. Overall, offering free coffee for downloading ta lightning app can be an effective way to attract and retain Bitcoiners.

Carrot and Stick

The carrot and stick approach is a motivational strategy that uses rewards and punishment to encourage behavior change. The “carrot” represents positive reinforcement or incentives for desired behavior, while the “stick” represents negative reinforcement or punishment for undesired behavior. For example, in the workplace, an employee may be offered a raise or promotion for meeting sales goals (carrot), while another employee may face disciplinary action or termination for consistently underperforming (stick). The carrot and stick approach can be effective in motivating individuals to achieve desired results, but it can also lead to fear and resentment if punishment is seen as unfair or excessive. Therefore, it is important to use this approach judiciously, balancing rewards and punishment in a way that is seen as reasonable and fair by all parties involved. Only carrots live around these parts.

Free Exchange of Ideas

The free exchange of ideas is beneficial for a number of reasons. Firstly, it allows individuals to broaden their understanding of a topic by exposing them to different perspectives and insights. This, in turn, can lead to innovation and progress as people are encouraged to approach problems in new ways. Additionally, it encourages reflection and critical thinking, allowing individuals to challenge their own beliefs and assumptions. It can also build bridges between different groups, promoting empathy and understanding. Finally, the free exchange of ideas supports democracy and freedom of speech, allowing individuals to express their opinions without fear of persecution or censorship. Overall, the free exchange of ideas encourages growth, learning and understanding on both an individual and societal level. Democracy is struggling to exist. Freedom of speech and of thought are under attack. Bitcoin is Freedom.
