<h1>Lightning Network Resources</h1>
<p>The Lightning Network is being developed as a means of making bitcoin payments faster, cheaper, and more private. It's still experimental and reckless to use for large amounts of money. The goal of this site is to provide an index of curated high quality educational resources and information about the Lightning Network to make it easier to educate yourself. Note that this list is open source; please <a href="https://github.com/jlopp/lopp.net/blob/master/lightning-information.html">suggest changes on Github</a>!
