George Kaloudis, analyst at CoinDesk Research, joins to share the cutting-edge research into Bitcoin’s on-chain metrics and the growth of the Lightning Network. Many people do not realize that Bitcoin’s Lightning Network was first implemented in 2017, and its conceptual origins were conceived in 2015. It has slowly and steadily been accumulating more users, growing its capacity to $140 million USD today. Kaloudis presents viewers with a thorough deep dive into the Lightning Network, as well as broader topics such as institutional adoption, with helpful visuals for each topic. He also provides a closer look at several on-chain metrics like transaction fees, on-chain liquidity, and exchange flows. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on October 11, 2021.
