2 min read

Radar, the startup behind decentralized exchanges Radar relays that raised $ 10 million last year, announced it will release new Lightning Network developer tools. The statement was made in a Medium message that was published on 5 April.

The developer tools, to be released at the Lightning Network hackathon, sponsored by the Boltathon company, include a node configuration tool, a channel opening and requesting tool, an invoice sandbox for testing, and an invoice decoder. The tools will be accompanied by setup tutorials, software recommendations and configuration manuals for connecting via anonymity network Tor and for access to non-released functions.

The tools and educational materials above are part of the Radar ION initiative of the company, which aims to bring new users to the Lightning Network. The Lightning Network is a cryptocurrency scalability solution – best known in its application to Bitcoin (BTC) – aimed at providing virtually free and immediate transactions.

As Cointelegraph reported in March, blockchain development company Lightning Labs announced the first release of the Lightning Network with Lightning Loop.

Also in March, Bitcoin mining and development company Bitfury entered into a partnership with the American payment processor HadePay to allow its sellers to accept Lightning Network transactions.
