Lightning Network, a decentralized network using smart contract functionality in the blockchain to enable instant payments across a network of participants, announces its plans towards bringing the protocol of microtransactions to a common standard.

As reported, the goal is to create a single standard for various protocol implementations.

The Lightning Network community has been collaborating on the spec for over a year, and the team has started testing for interoperability between three implementations: c-lightning, eclair, and lnd.

Development of our respective Lightning implementations is still underway, and we will be doing further testing before releasing any software for mainnet. We encourage anyone who wants to get involved to contribute to our testing and development efforts.
