Service mobile accounts Bitrefill introduced a service for opening a blank channel in the Lightning Network from its node startup. This will allow any person to obtain bitcoins through the Lightning channels, with only a link and a application wallet.

Introducing Thor, the new custom Lightning channel-opening service from @Bitrefill. Connect anyone to the Lightning Network with an app and a link.

Thor: #LightningNetwork #Bitcoin

— Bitrefill (@bitrefill) January 9, 2019.

The company intends to open channels for up to 30 days with a capacity from 300 000 to 16 000 000 Satoshi.

Thus, all the technical work on the opening and support of the channel will occur on the side Bitrefill.

Note that the service can be paid with bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, DASH or through the Lightning-payment.

Previously CEO Bitrefill Sergey Kotlyar said that the Lightning Network can help the network of bitcoin grow 10-100 times, however it still cannot be considered a final solution to the problem of scaling.
