Enthusiasts of the Bitcoin Lightning Network will be pleased with ACINQ right now, The company is releasing an Android Wallet for the  Lightning Network on the Bitcoin testnet. Although this still means the concept is in the  testing stage, it is a big step in the right direction. With SegWit activation drawing closer, now is a good time to look toward the future. Making the Lightning Network user-friendly is the obvious first step.

To access the Lightning Network, one needs to go through many hoops right now. Most non-developers will have an incredibly difficult time doing so. ACINQ acknowledges something needs to change in this regard. The company is releasing their Android application to make this protocol more accessible. Anyone making use of the app can send test transactions on the Bitcoin testnet. Eclair wallet is free to download and should be available in the Play Store right now.
