It looks as if Bitcoin users will soon be able to experiment with the Lightning Network. Zap, an LN-compatible Bitcoin wallet, announced its beta release not too long ago. This is a major development as far as Bitcoin scaling and improving transaction throughput are concerned. With SegWit activating in the near future, Zap comes at a most opportune time. This launch will help elevate Bitcoin to a whole new level in the near future.

The Zap wallet is still in beta, but provides some intriguing functionality. Bitcoin users can effectively access the Lightning Network through this program.
