Liquid is Live. What will be the benefit for the Bitcoin Community?

The Blockstream Liquid project is live since October 10th and a few days ago we have outlined its main features.

Liquid, being a Bitcoin sidechain, is particularly interesting because it could (and can be) inserted by absorbing part of the arbitrage transactions, the flow of movements from one Exchange to another, lightening the Bitcoin chain.

The result? Transactions in bitcoin "smoothly": to safeguard the ordinariness of waiting times and transaction validation costs. The innovative technology and the pleasant aspects for the whole Bitcoin Community.
