Bitcoin Lightning Network

The Lightning Network (LN) is a protocol designed to allow instant and cheap Bitcoin transactions. This protocol is built around bidirectional payment channels, which allow two parties to send money back and forth to one another. In addition, multiple channels can be strung together to route payments between parties who do not have a direct connection.

The ZEBEDEE Platform and its suite of products consumes and transacts with the open-source standard of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Lightning Network. The ZEBEDEE Developer Dashboard is a developer-facing product that allows for programmatic send and receive of Bitcoin payments over the Lightning Network in any virtual environment.
