Binance first hinted at the integration of the Lightning Network in May after it had to temporarily pause BTC withdrawals due to a mass of pending transactions caused by the surge of Ordinals inscriptions.

Binance later confirmed it is working to onboard the Lightning Network on June 20 shortly after users spotted Binance’s own Lightning nodes.

The Lightning Network aims to make Bitcoin transactions faster and cheaper by allowing users to create off-chain transaction channels.
