Lightning Network on Bitcoin Growing rapidly


In 2017 everyone realised that bitcoin will not scale enough due to its low TPS ( Transaction per second) as compared to other already established systems like Visa

Bitcoin – 7 TPS

VISA – 24000 TPS

Bitcoin suffers from scaling problem from beginning and Bitcoin community tried a lot of times with different proposals but this problem is not solved. 

Lightning Network 

In 2015 Thaddeus Dryja and Joseph Poon was described Lightning Network first time in whitepaper.
