Lighting Network With Bitcoin ATM
A Bitcoin Lightning ATM functions just like a typical Bitcoin ATM. However, it helps save plenty of time because of layer-2 Lightning’s instant transaction abilities. Also, it allows you to buy small quantities of BTC in Satoshi (sats), the smallest unit of measure for Bitcoin, where one satoshi is equivalent to 0.00000001 BT.
Right now, blockchain transactions are settled immediately by cryptocurrency ATMs, and it has its restrictions. For instance, when miner fees on the Bitcoin network massively increased between 2017 and 2018, operators were bound to adjust to batching of transactions.
In actuality, this means that even if a consumer has bought bitcoin by using an ATM, it isn’t sent to them right away. Before transferring the transactions to many customers at once in one significant transaction, the operator has systems available in place for waiting for other ATM network users to use the machines. A Lightning network may help in solving this issue.
