##On Episode 274 ...
Today we're talking about two exciting projects building more functionality on top of the Bitcoin protocol. We end todays show with Ryan Shea, one of the leads at the open source [OneName.io](http://onename.io) project as he talks about the power of identity.
But first, capacity is one of the biggest challenges ahead of Bitcoin, [The Lightning Network](http://lightning.network) concept is one of the more promising approaches, and this probably isn't the first time you've heard about it. We kick things off with Tadge Drydja, one of the founders behind the startup implementation of lightning network for an inside look at the possibilities and an update on their progress.
