Why Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a decentralized, open-source currency. Its strong yet transparent economics mean that anyone can participate within the Bitcoin ecosystem and that bad actors cannot manipulate the system. It is the fairest and freest form of money to exist.

Unlike other payment methods, there are no middleman fees and no account registration processes allowing transactions between the user and obilisk to be made directly. This also facilitates the micropayment structure of obilisk.

Why the Lightning Network?

Despite its short existence, the Lightning Network has proven to be fast and reliable while maintaining the “verify, don’t trust”, open-source ethos of Bitcoin. The Lightning Network is a crucial element in the operations of obilisk; instant and trustless payments allow users to seamlessly interact with obilisk.
