Expanding at a fast rate, the Lightning Network has changed the way that transactions are handled across the blockchain. Many companies have leveraged technology that overlays the layer 2 payment protocol layered on top of a blockchain-based cryptocurrency like bitcoin or Litecoin. LQwD FinTech (TSX.V: LQWD) (OTCQB: LQWDF), a financial technology company creating enterprise-grade infrastructure to drive bitcoin adoption, released a proprietary platform as a service (“PaaS”), https://lqwd.tech/, in November 2021, allowing users to send and receive payments quickly using the Lightning Network.
LQwD has invested its own bitcoin in the Lightning Network – with 10 active nodes spanning multiple geographic locations. Currently, LQwD has nodes operating in France, England, Sweden, Singapore, Italy, Indonesia, India, Germany, Ireland, and the United States.

When the new nodes were released, CEO Shone Anstey shared the company’s insight, underlying that the launch firmly positions LQwD to increase its overall value on the network. “Being a leading Lightning Network infrastructure and transaction facilitator has a lot of value: First, Lightning Network’s early-movers (like us) are best positioned to strategically expand our position on the network,” Anstey explained (https://ccw.fm/dMKDf). “Second, the more nodes LQwD establishes worldwide; the more transactions can be routed through our node network. And each transaction represents a routing fee.”
The Lightning Network has seen constant growth in the past year and is expected to continue this upward trend, along with the global cryptocurrency market. According to an October 2021 report by Arcane Research titled “State of Lightning,” the Lightning Network could see more than 700 million users by 2030, leading to as many as 364 trillion transactions per year. Meanwhile, the global cryptocurrency market is expected to reach US $4.94 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 12.8% from US $1.49 billion in 2020. Growth drivers include the need for increased transparency in payment systems and the untapped potential within emerging economies (https://ccw.fm/4nte3).
