Particl can now do Lightning Network transactions on testnet 😄


#1

This week, we saw the first Particl Lightning Network (LND) transaction on testnet!

https://explorer-testnet.particl.io/tx/bd6f69315e9413e5f8b987fb676d192c28e8e1b15a611701bf1cdecb090f9552
https://explorer-testnet.particl.io/tx/aa55ef38ee1f619de8ea00d02a403f2508bae87d98978d868230e8a67e804b72

These transactions are so expensive (not): 0.00000963 PART and 0.00001831 PART, respectively.

You can now try it out for yourself by using Tecnovert’s Particl LND script available at this address: https://gist.github.com/tecnovert/0ce71291d82718c0d9d378321a086c04

There is still a lot to do before it’s ready for use with real funds, but it’s a good first proof-of-concept that can be used by anyone!

Once Particl LND gets stable enough, the next item to tackle will be Blinded Lightning, an electrifying combination of LND and Particl Confidential Transactions!
