This is the 35th episode of the Lightning Junkies podcast. In this episode we have Ankur and Michael! They are the force behind Boltz Exchange. Boltz exchange is a platform that allows trades between off chain Bitcoin and on-chain Bitcoin.

An example transaction might be exchanging some of your Lightning channel for an on-chain balance so you have more inbound liquidity freed up. This might be useful for merchants that are looking for a quick way to free up liquidity. We talk about how their business works and more!

We talk about:

  • Ankur’s Background
  • Michael’s Background
  • Pros Of Lightning
  • Cons of Lighting
  • Boltz Exchange
  • Reverse Submarine Swap
  • Lightning Tools
  • Other Layer Two Solutions
