Lightspark CEO David Marcus predicts that Lightning Network (LN) will serve as the world's "interoperability neutral settlement layer," facilitating seamless transactions between various real-time payment systems.

Marcus emphasises Bitcoin's (CRYPTO:BTC) neutrality, positioning it as the ideal enabler for connecting national payment systems and giving adopters a competitive edge.

He envisions LN and Bitcoin becoming essential for corporations worldwide, offering cost-effective and reliable settlement solutions.

Lightspark, in collaboration with Coinbase, aims to simplify LN adoption by providing infrastructure and liquidity support.

Their Universal Money Address (UMA) protocol enhances LN functionality by incorporating foreign exchange rates and compliance information, paving the way for diverse use cases and ensuring regulatory compliance.
