Lightning Playground is here!

Lightning Network promises to scale transactions using a peer to peer network atop the Bitcoin blockchain. A global instant payment at this scale has never been unleashed. And no bank or account needed. All you need is a computer and internet.

Welcome to the Lightning Playground — Lightning Network-enabled marketplace for apps, games and transactions

We built Lightning Playground to make bitcoin payment processing easier. Focusing on user experience, we hope to remove all barriers for anyone looking to participate in the future of currency exchange.

Currently, Lightning Playground hosts the following features:

  • A functional lightning node accepting channels and routing payments on the Bitcoin Lightning Network
  • An API based web portal for hosting games and apps
  • Bitcoin Faucet

Current roadmap

Our current focus is on onboarding as many users as possible. We’ll concentrate on testing with our community and receiving feedback to further cultivate the best product we can.

We are chugging towards our Mainnet release of the Lightning Playground.

  • A functional lightning node accepting channels and routing payments on the Bitcoin Lightning Network
  • A developer API to send and receive lightning payments through the Lightning Playground
  • A lightning network enabled marketplace for transactions
  • Bitcoin Faucet

We are also focusing on releasing plugins for Shopify and other ecommerce platforms so lightning will be readily available with your current webstores.


This is the start of an exciting era. With instant and nearly free transactions, we aspire to enable as many users as possible. If you’re a developer, digital asset artist or have an idea for a game, and are interested in deploying your application, please contact us.
