Pieter Wuille Unveils Two Proposals for Upcoming Bitcoin Privacy Soft Fork
Bitcoin developer Pieter Wuille unveiled two proposals today that offer new plans for bitcoin's possible next big upgrade.
Marlin Protocol, which offers relayer networks to make blockchains faster, has raised $3 million from Binance Labs, Arrington XRP Capital and others.
So-called lightning network "watchtowers" -- a much-anticipated next step for securing the network -- are coming soon.
Payments startup Breez has unveiled a new feature allowing lightning-based bitcoin purchases directly from its mobile app.
Apps across the space are putting too much reliance (and data) on blockchains, argued Blockstack CEO Muneeb Ali at Consensus 2019.
A routing proposal is expected to be merged today into the official "specifications" of the lightning network, paving the way for new features.
