We’ve discussed the Lightning Network before - Bitcoin’s second layer scaling solution that uses state channels to allow more transactions per second, which is currently a key limiting factor inhibiting Bitcoin’s growth as a network. Ars Technica, a tech blog that I’ve followed for over 10 years now, put out a solid overview. As an aside, it’s been interesting to see blogs that previously had no connection whatsoever to crypto start to cover it.. really drives home the point that this is a new technology just as much as is it a financial innovation.
