TorGuard, an anonymous VPN and proxy service provider, publicized its acceptance of mainnet Lightning Network bitcoin payments. TorGuard is one of the first public businesses to initiate Lightning Network payments and affirms to reduce settlement fees to almost zero.

TorGuard tweeted “TorGuard now accepts mainnet Lightning Network BTC payments. Ask support for details!”

The Lightning Network (LN) is a decentralized network, employs smart contracts functionality to facilitate instant payments across the Bitcoin blockchain. Many crypto enthusiasts have moved to altcoins due to bitcoin’s higher transaction fees and networks congestion.

Several bitcoiners have had a trial run of the technology on both testnet and mainnet. For now, the protocol has transcended 610 nodes and 1882 channels, most of the activity has performed on Bitcoin’s testnet.

This is the most wonderful news I heard all day. But there is one big question that still remains - when will the Lightning Network is going to be fully implemented on bitcoin network? So that every bitcoin user around the world will start enjoying the sweetness of the Lightning Network. I don't like seeing many people looking down to bitcoin for higher transaction fees.

Good news alright and another step forward for lightning
but as above we need to know when bitcoin can get lightning.
I believe bitcoin could use a good positive news story to take it out of the doldrums it finds itself in at the moment.
