I think Aart Bik owns one, I don't know if he plays on LiChess. Do you know if it is possible to use an DGT Chessboard on LiChess as of now?

Update I guess there is a way to do this as of now.

According to DGT:

Seems things have not changed much on the e-Booard front. Appears you need a Bot Account to use an e-board or you have to pay extra ($100 USD) for the AcidApe DGT drivers in order to use your eboard on LiChess.

But this behaviour does not seem to be the case with the Certabo Electronic Chess Board
