RE: What’s The Latest?
The thread about the Bitcoin and crypto news sites got me thinking and I thought I’d post this for anyone who has any interesting new Bitcoin related news stories they’d like to post.
Here’s one on the latest progress with the Lightning Network
BITCOIN LIGHTNING NETWORK CAPACITY QUADRUPLES SINCE NOVEMBER
“Last month alone saw the network top 4,000 nodes and then explode in capacity to over $2 million value of bitcoin. Though the value of bitcoin has since fallen, in terms of BTC the capacity has nevertheless continued to rise. According to data from p2sh.info, it had reached 460 BTC at press time.
The number of open channels has also continued to rise, breaking 16,500, while nodes have increased to 4300+.”
From Antonopoulos’ YouTube channel
“What is difficulty and how is it adjusted? What if the difficulty could not be satisfied? Would sudden changes in mining hash power kill Bitcoin? Will mining ever be considered a central bank responsibility or national security issue, once the crypto economy becomes large enough? These questions are from the MOOC 10.2 session, and the September and October Patreon Q&A sessions, which took place on September 14th, September 29th, and October 27th 2018 respectively. ”
