Feel free to check us out: http://www.blockandjerrys.fun/

Cheers,

Rob, this is a great idea.. in so many ways.. right time, right product for early alpha LN.

One suggestion.. quote btc prices in a different denomination.. 99% of the public can't think in terms of 0.000392 vs 0.0000392 vs 0.00392. For those interested in btc, the ux is so important, and the btc denomination is an overlooked component of that.

Great idea, hopefully I'll soon be able to order such a delivery straight into my home, especially that the icecream looks yummy in those pictures. I also like the names, but you could be even more creative with those, go crazy. If lightning gets accepted by real businesses we'll finally be able to spend coins on different merchandise without having to buy gift cards and show the world that micropayments are possible with Bitcoin.

Trying to capitalize on Bitcoin's popularity. Very smart move. You could do a bit better job regarding your website if you are really serious about this, and not just making it for the sake of promoting Lightning Network. Better website will definitely attract more customers. (Don't get me wrong, current design is good, but the combination of background, cards and font is just wrong...)

Very good starting point, using bitcoin and the lightning network. This certainly is a win-win situation, your business gets the attention and lightning network is pushed and promoted. Hopefully this will be a success formula and other businesses will be triggered to accept Bitcoin.

Lightning Network is already available for people that have Bitcoin? It would be cool if  you guys could ship the Ice Cream worldwide.

They can defeneetly work on more information on the wbesite plus these moving clouds are moving customers attention to the background and make it harder to read the text.

This we need for major adoption, we have to have more services providing this kind of service plus they are pushing lighting network. Sadly you guys are to far from me as I even don't leave near you and I really mean it. But it is good when we see these kind of news, hopefully coindesk has given you good exposure to continue to grow your business. I am sure if more people notice this you are going to get sales and there can't be another perfect time than now to accept future of world payments in cryptocurrency plus with LN. All I can see keep up the good job, I might hopefully sometime in future have an opportunity to come to your shop.

another way to increase the spending of  bitcoins in an effort to increase public usage and knowledge . This is bitcoin doing its civic duty as its helping in the creation of start up entrepreneurs which every economy needs to develop and sustain itself.

Thanks for helping Lightning Network to become more usable! What a pity that you only deliver in San Francisco, I would definitely try you service if lived there. Please, let us know after some time if you had any problems with accepting Lightning Network payments e.g. randomly closed channels etc. Could you tell us to which or how many nodes you are connected to?
