  7. 7. Oracle services • Users enter into P2P risk contracts (e.g. on RiskBazaar, Augur) • Allocate a lightning node as the oracle • Lightning node reports on events / answers questions for a fee e.g. state of blockchain
  8. 8. Solving the block size debate • Incentivizing the running of Bitcoin full node • More people running full nodes -> More decentralization • Ability to generate revenue will make it more affordable to run full node with bigger blocks
