Our Lightning Network pilot launch is underway! Over 100 merchants are now accepting LN payments in our pilot phase. Check below for some websites where you can pay with Lightning!

Just a week ago we published our first post on Lightning Network while we were still testing it on our demo shop (where you can still try testnet LN payments). Now, we couldn’t be more excited about bringing real LN payments to so many merchants at once!

Lightning Network technology is garnering a lot of attention in the crypto community as well as in the media. Several projects have recently been started to promote its adoption, and we are really pleased to be among the first ones to do so. Read the exclusive CoinDesk feature for more details!

We are very proud of the shops that signed up for our pilot run. This is some really exciting tech, and while most places online still do not embrace Bitcoin, these shops are going all the way!
