As an individual why should I care? 

Benefits to Individuals

  • Lower Transaction Fees: Traditional Bitcoin transactions can have high fees, especially during network congestion. The Lightning Network allows for much lower transaction fees, making microtransactions feasible.
  • Faster Transactions: Transactions on the Lightning Network are almost instant, unlike regular Bitcoin transactions which can take minutes to hours to confirm.
  • Micropayments: The network supports micropayments, allowing individuals to pay tiny amounts, which is impractical with regular NZD transactions due to high fees.
  • Control: Transactions on the lightning network are push transactions, not pull transactions so unlike regular card transactions there is much less chance of fraud. 
  • Improved Privacy: Since transactions on Bitcoin are not subject to inherent surveilance your privacy is much better protected.
