Total Value on Bitcoin’s Lightning Network Sets Another Record High Amid Market Rally
The layer 2 protocol holds $12.4 million worth of bitcoins.
The recent bull run was largely about bitcoin as an asset. The Lightning Network is a grander vision, and developers say it's slowly becoming a reality.
Lightning Labs’ new liquidity marketplace, Lightning Pool, has seen more early-stage growth than its creators expected.
It took a whole year for the node count to double from 5,000 to 10,000. Three months later, it's over 23,000.
Lightning Labs new service, Pool, provides a marketplace for Lightning Network businesses and users to lease payment channel liquidity.
Lightning Labs made bookkeeping easier for node operators. Blockstream’s c-lightning 0.9.1 release improves channel opening and routing mechanisms.
