Food and cash shortages spread as Kazakhstan throttles internet

- Many Kazakhs do their daily shopping with debit cards. These were often rendered useless by the outage because payment terminals depend on internet connections. By the end of the week, long lines were forming at ATM machines in Almaty, Nur-Sultan and Aktau as residents sought cash to procure staples.

- Nurserik Zholbarys, a resident of Nur-Sultan, told Eurasianet that he stood over 30 minutes in a line to withdraw 10,000 tenge ($23) from a SberBank ATM machine in Nur-Sultan’s fashionable Esyl district. This is the daily limit imposed on those who can find a working ATM: The National Bank suspended commercial bank services on January 6; some fear they will not be available again until the state of emergency is lifted.

What is a BOLT?

- The BOLT acronym stands for: Basis of Lightning Technology. A BOLT is a set of rules that define the Lightning specification that is most used today and referred to as the Lightning Network. Most Lightning implementations follow the standards set by the BOLTs.

- Because the development of the Lightning network is distributed, there are multiple companies working on their independent implementations. Each one has to be compatible with others for the Lightning network to function as one network.
