I was thinking of how to use Lightning for various types of payments,
and I think it's currently fine for customer/(web)shop type
interactions, but it seems a bit inconvenient for other use cases, e.g.
salary payments or direct pay-out of cryptocurrency bought on an
exchange. I came up with an idea that addresses some of these issues and
more (e.g. payee anonymity) by having a direct line of communication
between payer and payee instead of BOLT11-style interaction. It's still
a bit half-baked, with many details not worked out yet, but you can read
it here, and see if you like where this is going:


In true permissionless fashion, I have been so bolD to register bolT #12
for my idea.

Please let me know what you think.

kind regards,
