Building Companies That Improve Lightning Network Liquidity Today

The Lightning Network is a second layer built on top of the Bitcoin Network that allows for transactions to happen more quickly and efficiently without the need to wait on blocks being confirmed on-chain.

To circumvent the need to wait for on-chain confirmations for each transaction, node operators open payment channels to other nodes with a chosen amount of bitcoin going into the channel. This initial transaction is confirmed on chain, but once a channel is opened, payments can move seamlessly through payment channels across nodes throughout the network.
