One Year Later, A Wave of Apps Is Emerging on Bitcoin Cash
Now a year old, bitcoin cash is carving out a unique niche for itself with new applications.
A new funding round shows that lightning technology isn't just a big hit with bitcoin developers - investors are getting interested, too.
Famed cryptographer and digital money pioneer, David Chaum, revealed he thinks he's built a "better" cryptocurrency.
Devs are looking to make bitcoin's layer-two lightning network compatible with a payment standard used by all major browsers – and so far, so good.
Lightning nodes are making money – albeit not much – displaying the potential for a growing fee market on the layer two tech.
An influx of lightning apps are mostly silly, but they demo a serious point: the tech enables bitcoin to compete with traditional payment rails.
