One-page summary outlining the Lightning Network including sections on instant payments, micropayments, scalability, and an explanation on how it works.
Bitcoin, the world's most widely used and valuable digital currency, allows anyone to send value without a trusted intermediary or depository. Bitcoin contains an advanced scripting system allowing users to program instructions for funds. There are, however, some drawbacks to bitcoin's decentralized design. Transactions confirmed on the bitcoin blockchain take up to one hour before they are irreversible. Micropayments, or payments less than a few cents, are inconsistently confirmed, and fees render such transactions unviable on the network today
