Meet "Swotto Piggy" an adorable duck piggy bank made from Lego and powered by LightningPiggy code. Built by SatsVault for his nephew's birthday, it was an educational experience for both, with SatsVault learning about Minecraft, and his nephew learning about bitcoin.

We love how the next generation of bitcoiners are stacking sats in style. How cool is it to say, "Pay my duckling bitcoin over lightning"?

Shining a light on sound money: This Minecraft-inspired savings' lamp, a first of its kind, was ingeniously crafted by Silexperience and his son. The project was sparked by a curious question from his son, "Can bitcoin be in a piggy bank?" This led to the idea of integrating a LightningPiggy device inside a block shaped lamp.

We love how the LightningPiggy device can seamlessly integrated into any object and in this case it looks like an artefact of the bitcoin blockchain.
