London’s first Lightning Network bar opens for business

posted about 1 month ago
The Rotate bar in London now accepts payments for food and beverages with instantaneous transactions over the Lightning Network. The bar’s owner, James Stell, said that Lightningpay.co.uk “helped us set up our payments solution and provide ongoing help when required”.

The bar had previously accepted Bitcoin payments, but customers had to wait for at least one block confirmation on the BTC network before they could leave the establishment. Now that the bar accepts Bitcoin payments via Lightning, waiting for the confirmation is no longer an issue.
