The State of Lightning Volume 2 - Micropayments dominate in numbers

Making minuscule payments possible without drowning in fees is one of the Lightning Network’s unique features. And it’s showing in the data.

In our new report, The State of Lightning Volume 2, we estimate that close to 2 million payments were performed on the Lightning Network in the first two months of 2022.

Breaking the payments down into categories, we see that more than half of the payments are tiny and go from a service to an individual. We call them micro rewards.
