Lightning Network advances towards larger payment capability with multi-path payments

posted 7 months ago
Samson Mow, Chief Strategy Officer at Blockstream, the Canadian blockchain services company known for its work on the Lightning Network, said tests on the open source initiative to make multi-path payments interoperable were now complete. This will allow Lightning payments to be split into smaller chunks so that large amounts of bitcoin can be sent both quickly and cheaply.

"Multi-path payments allow for multiple channels to be used together in concert, which means large payments can be split into smaller ones to route successfully,” explained Mow. Sending payments over the protocol would improve the privacy of Lighting Network intermediaries and provide fee savings, as well as other benefits.
