Baby steps, these are satoshis being "streamed" once a minute in a local regtest cluster while listening to a podcast. @podstation is calling the REST API from my LND node from chrome.
Progress is slow, but getting there, eventually there will be a very crude proof of concept being published.

In the future it would be interesting to wrap the node with some gateway software where the node owner can configure some per-client guard rails (i.e. daily quota of sats and list of allowed nodes, or something like that). Lndhub looks like a candidade, but I did not have the time to check that yet.
@adam @dave @podstation I created an account on the website and checked the docs. It seems to be a single node where users can create "virtual wallets" on top of it. I imagine that some data is added to the invoices to match the funds with the wallet (when receiving money).
It seems suitable for sending money (so, very comfy for listeners, if they can find a cheap way to transfer funds to this virtual wallet).
Looks like we could use it from the sending side.
@dellagustin @dave @podstation I am now in contact with the CEO. Speaking with him Monday. It would be great to have any questions or concerns before then. The obvious is their model, but I suspect fees from channels and routing. It would be a single point of failure for us, but a darned good start to scaling this so more devs can work on the hurdles.
