The dream of paying for a cup of coffee with Bitcoin can only happen when the network scales to take on a higher number of transactions. The Lightning Network can make this next level of scalability a reality - fast transactions with manageable fees in high volumes. For this next step forward, it is necessary for exchanges to integrate with the Lightning Network needs to connect with traditional exchanges.
