A brief history of the Lightning Network

The Bitcoin community has long been baffled by the scalability issue. The speed of transactions fell, and the network fees grew. In 2015 Thaddeus Dria and Joseph Poon proposed a solution called the Lightning Network. The idea was to carry out some of the transactions outside the network, thereby reducing the load on the BTC blockchain. In 2018, the Lightning Network was launched in Bitcoin.

The Lightning Network is a system that helps users move funds among themselves without having to use a blockchain to verify a transaction. Instead, there is a quick check of funds from the sender and a request from the recipient who agrees to the transaction.

Problems that may arise when sending Lightning Network

  1. If an error occurs when you try to send the Lightning Network, then most likely it happened due to the lack of channels. The Lightning Network requires links between nodes. If your wallet allows you to open channels yourself, then you can open a channel with FixedFloat.
    FixedFloat Node:

    For more information on how to do this, see our article "How to start using the Lightning Network?".
  2. If you see a "Payment in transit" message when sending the Lightning Network, it means the Lightning Network has been sent, but there is a problem with intermediate nodes. You need to wait for the final invoice payment or refund.

Lightning Network Speed and Fees

Since transactions on the Lightning Network do not end up on the blockchain, they are almost instantaneous. But if one of the intermediate nodes is off the network, the transaction may be delayed.

The fee depends on the intermediate channels through which the payment passes. Usually it is almost zero. But it so happens that some channels charge a high fee for passing the payment. It can reach up to 1% of the amount.

What is USDP?

USDP Token is the token of the Paxos platform built on Ethereum blockchain technology (ERC-20 protocol) in 2018. USDP Token is fully backed 1:1 USD issued by the Paxos Trust Company and is approved and regulated by the NYS Department of Financial Services. PAX is also known as USD Digital.

Like other stablecoins such as USDT, PAX aims to combine the stability and reliability of the US dollar with the benefits of digital money. Namely, to make it so that it can be transmitted via the Internet to anyone on the planet, instantly, at any time and practically without commissions.

PAX smart contract

Our exchanger only sends transactions to the original PAX contract. Transactions are not sent to addresses of third-party contracts.

My order is completed, but I cannot see the funds in my wallet, what should I do?

We send Ethereum tokens with an average commission so that the receiving party does not have to wait long for the receipt. But sometimes, with the increased load on the Ethereum network, the transaction can get stuck in the mempool and not get into the block. The status of such a transaction is "Pending". The etherscan.io explorer gives information about the expected processing time of a transaction, but you need to understand that this value is not exact and may change depending on the situation.

If a transaction sent by us cannot be confirmed for a long time, contact technical support with a request to push the transaction through.
