Lightning Network News
What is Lightning Network? The Lightning Network is a Bitcoin scalability solution. The Bitcoin Lightning Network operates as a layer-two transaction network involving payment channels separate from Bitcoin’s main blockchain, with transactions eventually being settled on the main blockchain.
Bitcoin can only handle approximately seven on-chain transactions per second, as opposed to some mainstream credit cards that frequently handle north of 1,000 TPS. Bitcoin transactions on the Lightning Network often cost less than on-chain transactions. Thanks to the Lightning Network, Bitcoin has added versatility amid increasing use. The Lightning Network white paper was first released in 2015, but its most recently updated version was released in 2016 and remains in draft form.
