Bitfury Launches Toolkit for Bitcoin's Lightning Network

Bitfury, known for making specialized crypto mining hardware, has just released a new tool suite targeted at supporting Bitcoin’s Lightning Network (LN).

The bundle is created by Bitfury’s own Lightning Peach team which focuses on Lightning development. The new toolkit includes an open-source Lightning Network-enabled Bitcoin wallet, a hardware terminal and e-commerce software, a suite of developer tools, and a public Lightning Network node called “The Peach”.

While LN is still being developed, the toolkit aims to make the network “easier for vendors and consumers to use,” Bitfury said.

“By providing these products to the market, Bitfury is encouraging worldwide adoption of this technology and providing unparalleled support to consumers and merchants,” said Valery Vavilov, CEO of Bitfury.

Last week, Bitfury announced on its official blog (Jan 15) that it had incorporated Lightning technology for crypto exchange BTCBIT “to help more people use Bitcoin in their everyday lives in a faster and more convenient way”.
