Abstract

Lightning Network is a novel off chain solution to Bitcoin's scalability problem. It features a peer to peer network of payment channels which can transfer value off chain. In this solution, multiple transactions on the lightning network will be mapped to one transaction on the Bitcoin network, thus, It enables fast transactions with low transaction fees.
I this talk, we will investigate some interesting algorithmic problems considering the Lightning Network.
