What is Lightning Bitcoin

Lightning Bitcoin is a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain. By adopting DPoS consensus mechanism with 2M blocksize, Lightning Bitcoin improves transaction speed, promotes decentralisation and also supports smart contracts. Lightning Bitcoin combines the advantages of Bitcoin and Ethereum and creates a more valuable and functional blockchain system.

The ticker of Lightning Bitcoin is LBTC

How to claim LBTC

The original bitcoin holders can claim LBTC at a 1:1 ratio if you held BTC in the wallet or the supporting exchanges at Bitcoin block 499,999 (Dec. 18th, 2017).
Please only use links provided from the official resources!

Why does LBTC use DPoS instead of PoW

LBTC employs the DPoS Consensus Mechanism, which implements technological democracies to offset the negative effects of centralisation problems posed by the PoW algorithm. As a result, true decentralisation can be achieved with the voting right in the hands of the token holders, which ensures to maximise shareholder profitability and the network effect, minimise the costs of maintaining cybersecurity and the cost of operating the network. Significantly reduced the number of participating verification nodes, LBTC can reach the consensus in seconds, and the transaction speed is really FAST as lightning.

How to forge LBTC

How to forge (mine) LBTC?

First, one need to download the wallet and register as delegate. One address can register as one delegate. Then you can vote for yourself or ask others to vote for you. The number of votes is the number of LBTC held by the voting address. The top 101 addresses that get the highest number of votes can be regarded as bookkeeping nodes. The ranking and votes can be seen in the block explorer.

The previous steps can be completed through the light wallet our the full node wallet, but if you’re elected as a bookkeeping node, you need to run the forging process in the full node wallet. The detailed tutorial can be found in LBTC website.
