How To Send Large Bitcoin Payments On Lightning

The Lightning Network is seen as the main solution in the Bitcoin ecosystem for making small BTC transactions feasible, as it enables the smallest of payments to be sent for nearly no fees.

Indeed, Lightning has come a long way since first being designed in 2015 and having gone live in 2018. There are now over 88,000 public channels holding over 4,000 BTC, according to data from Txstats.com.

The Bitcoin overlay network enjoyed substantial growth over the past year after it was put front and center in global media with the adoption of bitcoin as a legal tender by El Salvador. The move conferred much legitimacy to Lightning as it became clear to the world that bitcoin could indeed be used to purchase daily goods.
