Welcome to the iCE3X Bitcoin Lightning Network 101 Foundation Course. We designed this course to give you an overall basic understanding of the Bitcoin Lightning Network.
What is it? Who built it? Why did they design it in the first place and how does it work? We look at all of these important questions and more, at the end of this course you can be confident that you will know what the lightning network is and how it works.
Everyone can learn something from this course but we specifically created this course to introduce newcomers to the cryptocurrency space to the concept of Bitcoin Lightning. If you know about Bitcoin but don’t understand the Lightning Network, then this course is perfect for you. If you have never heard of bitcoin, you may want to review the bitcoin school first.
