Let's keep track of the exchanges that support Lightning Network

Lightning Network (LN) is a structure of payment channels open between private individuals and/or companies and represents the scaling solution for Bitcoin; that's why we often called it also the Bitcoin' Second Layer.

With Lightning we can potentially make hundreds of thousands if not million transactions per second and so reach any part of the World (almost) instantaneously.

Lightning therefore constitutes a true P2P network, in full compliance with the abstract of the Bitcoin whitepaper created by Satoshi Nakamoto, while the Base (Settlement) Layer, with its blockchain, is more similar to a broadcast system, since the transaction transcription and so their irreversibility depends on the miners.

We will see many exchanges in the near future that will implement Lightning: it's fast, reliable, and the capacity is increasing thanks to the Wumbo channels.

My proposal is to collect the exchanges that already implemented Lightning Network or plan to do it in a simple table and keep it update. So, let's do it!

I invite the representatives of the exchanges to signal their support to Lightning Network also in this repo.
