The Lightning Network Lunch: A Bitcoin contactless payment story

The Lightning Network (LN) just got a bit faster, as the suitably named Bolt Card now enables (BTC) enthusiasts to pay for goods and services using contactless technology.

A data analyst at the company behind the card, CoinCorner, took the Bolt card on a trial run on the Isle of Man, a British Crown dependency in the Irish Sea. “MSW” — as he is known — tapped to pay at eight point-of-sale (PoS) devices during his lunchtime investigation.
