jb55 is making satsbacker
My name is William Casarin. I've started satsbacker as a response to
treatment of users that don't fit their perferred political mold. satsbacker is open source Patreon alternative built on the
Bitcoin Lightning network.
When running satsbacker, the users and backers are in control. No
service provider or payment processor can shut you down. As long as you
have server with a connection to the internet, you can get paid by
people who support your work.
- Open source, MIT licensed. You will be able to run your own server if desired.
- Paypal, Stripe support. Although these are susceptible to censorship, it would still be nice these payment options.
- Full Bitcoin Lightning network support. This is already working!
- Onchain Bitcoin support.
- Goals, posts, superchat.
- Individual donations, comment or draw on your wall.
- A flexible templating system to support many kinds of donation models
- A drop-in, run-your-own replacement for lightning-charge, btcpayserver, earn.com, etc.
- YOUR IDEA HERE. This will be an open source project. Feel free to contribute.
How you can help
I need your help building this out. I've
started a satsbacker for satsbacker to help make this a reality.
