The BTC Lightning Network which was created to fight with the issue of Bitcoin scalability is developing at a huge pace. The story began last February. Back then, the network only had 1 thousand channels, worth 4 BTC per channel.
The network started growing. In August it already had 11 thousand channels with a price of 97 BTC per channel. We remind you:
And then Bitcoin Cash hardforked, and things went wild. The Lightning Network literally blew up. At the time of writing, the number of its channels equals to 16677. This means an increase by 1600% since the February of 2018.
