Dear BitMart users,

 

BitMart is thrilled to announce the official integration of the BTC Lightning Network on the platform. This groundbreaking development empowers BitMart users to experience significantly faster and more cost-effective BTC transfers, revolutionizing the trading experience. BitMart users can now enjoy BTC Lightning Network for both deposits and withdrawals. 

 

What is the Bitcoin Lightning Network?

The Bitcoin Lightning Network is a significant layer-2 solution built on the Bitcoin blockchain,  playing a pivotal role in improving blockchain scalability. Out of all layer-2 solutions, the Lightning Network stands out as a critical component, given its strong affiliation with Bitcoin and its capacity to enhance the utility value of the chain.

Important Notes: 

  1. BTC Lightning Network Deposit/Withdrawal Limits: BitMart has set the limits for BTC Lightning Network deposits and withdrawals between 0.000001 BTC and 0.1 BTC
  2. Currently, BitMart has established two channels with ACINQ, two channels with Kraken, and one channel with OKX.
  3. BTC Lightning Network Invoice Number: Unlike other token wallet addresses, BTC Lightning Network wallet addresses are referred to as "invoice numbers". These invoice numbers are updated every 3,600 seconds (60 minutes). Notably, the invoice number becomes invalid after a single withdrawal by the user. If an invoice number remains unused for 60 minutes, it must be refreshed to obtain a new one.
