Read_618 – Expanding Functionality in Lightning Implementations [Shinobi]

“There are still many extensions to build out in the protocol and areas with unsolved scaling issues. In general, the Lightning protocol itself still has a long way to go in terms of solving existing issues and becoming robust and scalable enough to serve as a global transactional network on top of Bitcoin.” – Shinobi

Following up some of the incredible announcements and discussions at Bitcoin2022, Shinobi breaks down what is happening in the major Lightning implementations, the directions they are focused on, & what we may expect to see in Lightning evolution in the near term. Tons to cover in this great little piece from Bitcoin Magazine. Don’t forget to follow Shinobi on Twitter for a much needed perspective as we move into a new chapter for Bitcoin.
