Coinbase, a prominent US-based crypto exchange, has fulfilled its promise by integrating the Bitcoin Lightning network, following similar moves by competitors like Binance (CRYPTO:BNB).

This integration, facilitated by Lightspark, a lightning network-based payment infrastructure provider, streamlines transactions and enhances scalability for Coinbase users.

By leveraging Lightspark’s remote-key signing implementation, Coinbase retains control over Lightning signing keys while Lightspark manages the node infrastructure, ensuring efficient operations without burdening Coinbase’s team.

Shan Aggarwal, Coinbase’s VP of Corporate & Business Development, emphasises the partnership's significance in eliminating payment barriers and enabling faster, cheaper Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) transactions.

The integration not only enhances Coinbase's service offerings but also marks a pivotal moment for Bitcoin adoption, particularly amidst rising demand for streamlined transactions in the crypto market.
