Stellar (XLM) has been intending to start using Lightning Network since March to boost its scaling parameters. Scalability is the snag numerous DLT projects hit. When thinking of Lightning, Stellar managers intended to give users a better experience related to faster operations and anonymity.
The Lightning Network was initially created for Bitcoin since the BTC chain has poor scaling at present.
Stellar’s roadmap clearly confirms the team’s intention to integrate the system into their Blockchain by December.
