Summary of lightningnetwork/lnd

The Lightning Network Daemon (LND) is a repository on GitHub that is part of the Lightning Network. It's designed to be a complete implementation of a Lightning Network node and includes functionalities such as:

  • Creating and managing channels
  • Sending and receiving payments
  • Managing on-chain transactions
  • Interfacing with other Lightning Network nodes

LND is built with a focus on interoperability. It conforms to the BOLT (Basis of Lightning Technology) specifications, which outline the standards for the Lightning Network. These specifications aim to ensure different Lightning Network nodes can work together seamlessly.

The LND repository is open sourced, allowing anyone to contribute to its development, evaluate its code or build upon it. It's written in Go and relies on the btcd suite of bitcoin libraries, but also includes partial support for Bitcoin Core. It supports various systems including Linux, macOS, and Windows.

Developers interested in contributing to the project are welcome to submit pull requests, but are encouraged to follow the contribution guidelines set out by the maintainers.

Please note that as implementing the Lightning Network can be complex, getting involved with or using the LND software requires a high level of understanding of how cryptocurrencies and the Lightning Network work.
