Now you can have access to faster bitcoin transactions with more privacy. Flyp.me, the instant accountless crypto exchange, has started to support Liquid Network and has added L-BTC to its growing index of cryptocurrencies supported. Now Flyp.me users can easily exchange to or from L-BTC.
What is Liquid Network and L-BTC?
The Liquid Network allows users to have faster and more confidential transactions while also giving them the ability to create new Liquid assets. Blockstream developers wanted to create an alternative to improve the BTC mainchain. Consequently, they built the Liquid Network which is a sidechain-based settlement network for both individuals and businesses.
Basically, you can deposit BTC into the Liquid Network and in return create L-BTC. L-BTC is a pegged version of Bitcoin which is verifiably backed 1:1 by BTC on the Bitcoin main chain.
The advantage of using L-BTC is its speed, as it’s estimated that transactions on the Liquid Network are ten times faster than Bitcoin’s main chain. This means that instead of taking ten minutes for one BTC transaction, it would only take around one minute for sending or receiving L-BTC. Final, irreversible settlements only require two blocks (two minutes). This is important, especially for trading during volatile periods, as you are less likely to miss out on the window of opportunity due to time-consuming transactions. The liquid network also increases the user’s privacy as the transactions are confidential.
L-BTC is overseen by a group of federated nodes that are hosted by established crypto exchanges, grand OTC trading desks, and alike. Once a user wants to return their L-BTC into BTC, federation members can perform the peg-outs at any point. When the federation member executes the reversed process, the L-BTC is destroyed. This ensures that the L-BTC in circulation is always backed by BTC 1:1 and inflation cannot occur. The price of L-BTC moves in accordance with BTC.
