The beta version of the lightning network-based trading platform LN Markets is online, with a monthly transaction volume exceeding 400,000 US dollars

The beta version of the derivatives trading platform LN Markets based on the Bitcoin Lightning Network has been launched on the Bitcoin mainnet. The trading platform can only be accessed through the Lightning Network, and the margin position is realized by Lightning Network trading. The derivatives currently implemented are Contracts for Difference (CFD), which are based on the Bitcoin price of the BitMEX platform. Since the platform is still in the Alpha testing phase, the maximum margin for each position is limited to 0.01 BTC. Officials said that one month after the beta was launched, more than 2,000 transactions have been executed, and more than 400,000 US dollars of transactions have been aggregated.
