Introduction to the Lightning network

2nd July 2019 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from London Women in Bitcoin July

There has been a lot of talk about the Lightning Network - but what is it, and how does it work? The Lightning Network addresses Bitcoin's scaling challenges by adding another layer to its blockchain and enables users to create payment channels between any two parties on that extra layer. These channels can exist for as long as required, and because they’re set up between two people, transactions will be almost instant and the fees will be extremely low or even non-existent. Benoit Marzouk will demystify how it works and answer questions.
