California startup Lightning Labs released today a new feature to improve usability of the bitcoin payment channel network, lightning.
A streamlined version of the Raiden payments channel network has been launched on the main ethereum blockchain.
The creator of a new ethereum project says his ambitious off-chain networks, done right, could enable more complex applications of the technology.
Researchers have laid out a framework for a payment system they claim would be even faster than bitcoin's Lightning Network.
A project aiming to bring payment channels to ethereum is expected to become production-ready by the end of this year.
