When bootstrapping mesh networks from scratch, we face challenges in delivering a competitive service for users who have internet access. One key challenge is the cost of achieving sufficient node proximity under the existing hardware constraints. A protocol called LOT49 already lets mesh nodes transfer these costs to the user via lightning. Let us explore which use cases mesh networks can serve today to maximize the value they deliver to users while minimizing their infrastructure cost.
