'Poketoshi' Game Brings Nintendo's Pokemon Onto Bitcoin Lightning Network


Portuguese software engineer João Almeida has created ‘Poketoshi,’ a platform that allows users to play Nintendo’s popular Pokémon game on the Lightning Network (LN). The Lightning Network is a second-layer solution to Bitcoin’s scalability limitations, opening payment channels between users that keep the majority of transactions off-chain, turning to the underlying blockchain only to record the net results. Almeida’s Poketoshi uses LN together with the live streaming video platform Twitch, which allows users to interact with the game via an online chat room - as in the existing ‘Twitch Plays Pokémon’ series.
