You must download a Lightning Network enabled Bitcoin Wallet. Here is a list of popular mobile and PC Lightning Network wallets.
You must have bitcoin in your wallet. Depending on your jurisdiction, different options to purchase bitcoin exist (online broker, Over-The-Counter (OTC) exchange, Bitcoin ATM, etc.).
You must open a channel with the obilisk node or with a mutually connected node. In the future, this complication will be abstracted away.
Enter a math problem for obilisk to solve. Currently, obilisk can solve any arithmetic problem, and most polynomial root finding problems. Other features such as calculus and linear algebra will be implemented in future releases.
If properly entered, obilisk will generate an encoded Lightning invoice. Using your wallet of choice filled with some bitcoin, pay the invoice.
Once successfully paid, click the “Check Payment” button. obilisk will query the Lightning Node to ensure the payment was made and then display the solution.
And that’s it! Once onboarding to the Lightning Network is done, obilisk is fast and easy to use. As development of the Lightning Network progresses, onboarding will become easier and easier.
