Since the beginning of the year, the capacity of the micropayment network has increased by more than 170%, from 1,058 BTC to 2,866 BTC. The total number of nodes reached 27,044 and the number of channels reached 73,400.

As a reminder, bitcoin exchange OKEx and P2P platform Paxful have integrated LN in recent months.

Billionaire and well-known bitcoin advocate Salinas Pliego has also announced support for the tier 2 solution in his Latin American electronics shop chain.
