posted 3 months ago
Bitcoin passed more significant milestones this week as data reveals the Lightning Network implementation passed 500 BTC ($2,066,000) capacity for the first time. Statistics from monitoring resource 1ML.com confirmed the record capacity for payments, with the number of accessible nodes also rocketing 13.7% & the channels close to 25%.

The figures cap a period of constant improvements for Lightning, which has only added to its growth in both technical prowess & popularity in recent weeks & months. A robust technical basis has become a key argument for proponents of Bitcoin.
