As of this writing, the capacity of the Lightning Network – the total amount of bitcoin in the network – has reached an all-time high of 4,351 BTC, the equivalent of nearly $100 million. The List of exchanges that have incorporated Lightning It is growing exponentially, with the latest additions to Kraken, Okcoin and OKEx. according to Bitcoin visuals, the number of nodes at the end of July 2021 was about 13,391. This number has increased by about 27% to nearly 17,000 nodes. (The actual number of nodes will always be higher because there are a large number of private nodes that are not included in the public data.) All of these increases in capacity, exchange integrity, and number of nodes indicate increased user adoption.
