What we're about

We're a community of Bitcoin enthusiasts interested in Lightning Network and others Bitcoin layer 2 solutions, who get together over a beer, or other drink, and have fun while talking about Lightning Network and Bitcoin.

What is Lightning Network?
Lightning is a decentralized network that enables free and instant Bitcoin transaction, using the power of Bitcoin Hash Time Locked Contracts and creating channels. While Bitcoin is growing exponentially and reaching the global scale, the cost and the speed of the network is also increasing exponentially, Lightning Network is the most promising solution that will bring Bitcoin scale to the next level, making it possible to buy a coffee with a Bitcoin, or even to stream music or a movie and to pay with micro-transactions.
