lnd — Lightning Labs

The Lightning Network Daemon (lnd) - is a complete implementation of a Lightning Network node and currently deployed on testnet4 - the Bitcoin Test Network. It utilizes an upcoming upgrade to Bitcoin: Segregated Witness (segwit). The project's codebase uses the btcsuite set of Bitcoin libraries, and is currently dependant on btcd. In the current state lnd is capable of:
* creating channels
* closing channels
* completely managing all channel states (including the exceptional ones!)
* maintaining a fully authenticated+validated channel graph
* performing path finding within the network, passively forwarding incoming payments
* sending outgoing onion-encrypted payments through the network
