Lightning Labs updates Litd, anyone can now run Bitcoin Lightning Network nodes
Lightning Labs, the team behind Lightning Network (LN), has upgraded Litd to permit ordinary users to operate their own Lightning Network (LN) nodes.
Users can now send and receive bitcoin (BTC) in a non-custodial style without technical proficiency.
Latest Litd advancement
Lighting Labs introduced new changes in the Lightning Network management tool, Litd, based on feedback from the node operator community and developers. The new version lets users interact with the Lightning Pool freely by sending and receiving bitcoin in the all-in-one suite.
In a press release, the features will improve the LN by advancing the terminal web user interface. It also advances automated channel fee control whereby by turning on the “auto fees” section, fees are automatically populated under the terminal section.
Once a user allows the automatic fee management, a new incremental session starts with the Autopilot server. A dedicated macaroon limits the session-hosted UI and can be rescinded anytime.
The new features have tools for simplifying liquidity and accounting. Moreover, community members can run a LN node and create accounts for community members.
However, high levels of trust are necessary for good relationships with the system. This feature opens rooms for community members to build something new.
Improved mode of operation
Lightning Labs confirmed that the Bitcoin Lightning Network required a better on-boarding procedure. Creating one node suited for multiple users is available to solve the problem. In the model, a single user can onboard thousands of users into the Lighting Network.
The node admin can allow the on-boarded users to reach their node using a default interface. The form of access is well suited to local or remote interfaces.
The latest advancements in the Lightning Network magnify Litd’s potential and help create better ways of exposing billions to bitcoin, according to Michael Levin, the product growth lead of Lightning Network. Lightning Network’s new features are operational, and users can start interacting with them.
The new developments come weeks after Elizabeth Stark, Lightning network CEO unveiled Taro, a novel protocol designed to optimize stablecoins.
Bitcoin’s Lightning Network continues to gain momentum in the crypto space, and the current advancements will likely increase the number of participants on the network.
