Lightning Network is now live at Living Room of Satoshi!

Want to try out the lightning network for real? It’s easy, you don’t need to run a full node, you just need a phone.

You can make payments between $0.01 and $20.00 to an Australian bank account or a credit card with Lightning Network at Living Room of Satoshi. Yes, it’s only a small amount for now, but it’s still very early for this technology so there is a limit for now.

Try it out! And let us know what you think.

Follow these steps to get started on Lightning:

  1. Download Eclair Wallet on Android.Open it, follow the prompts, write down your seed words.
