Cobra Cobra just posted on Reddit that the Lightning Network (LN) actually poses a threat to the long-term value of Bitcoin. Lightning Network is not Bitcoin’s exclusive scalability solution, but any scalable token solution. Why use Bitcoin when you can pay for a token that supports Lightning Networks at a lower cost? Bitcoin is more suitable for expansion through side chains. “Cobra Cobra” is the leader of Bitcoin.org and Bitcointalk.org and is a mysterious, but heavily controlled figure in the digital currency community.
