Tutorial Description

"The Lightning Network" is a solution to enable a global payment system that works instantaneously and for little or no cost. With this new technology and infrastructure, we finally have a working method of dealing with micropayments, which are payments of a fraction of a cent that can be sent anywhere around the globe using just the internet and a mobile device. For the first time, we can even stream money in real-time to pay for services as we use them.

In the first of this two-part series, Don takes you through the background of this new technology and gives you two examples of the Lightning Network in action.

You don't need to understand the Lightning Network's technical aspects to use and benefit from it. However, I do think that a deeper understanding of Bitcoin, the network and BTC, the digital asset is beneficial for many reasons. So I've added some resources below to help do your own research.
