“We are pushing the idea that Lightning has a multitude of benefits when integrated into an exchange’s infrastructure that isn’t just related to withdrawals and deposits.” – Chris Stewart Founder/CEO
Why Lightning Network?
Lightning takes the benefits of Bitcoin - security, privacy, transparency, low fees - and makes them a reality. Lightning enables developers to use and pay only for the data they want by using micro-payments all while having no sign-up process. Lightning lets you stream data in seconds and start building your application.
What We Do
We sell real-time data for bitcoin, utilizing micropayments not possible with traditional financial systems. Legacy data sources require substantial upfront capital costs that individuals cannot afford. By democratizing access to this data, we enable entrepreneurs to focus on building innovative products.
