Nearly 100 million people have access to Lightning payments

In March 2022, we estimated that more than 80 million people had access to Lightning payments on an installed application, an enormous growth from the 100,000 people in the summer of 2021.

Most of these users come from a select few applications integrating Lightning payments, but the number of users on already existing applications has also risen significantly.

The primary sources of user growth during the Autumn of 2021 are the El Salvadorian government wallet Chivo with 4 million downloads, and peer-to-peer digital marketplace Paxful with 7 million downloads.
