Core Lightning support has arrived to the Bleskomat Platform

The Bleskomat Platform has received a few updates recently. One exciting new feature is support for the Core Lightning (“C-Lightning”) node software as a Lightning Network (LN) backend. This allows users of Core Lightning to connect their Bleskomat ATM to their node via the Bleskomat Platform.

Since remote LN integrations use HTTP requests, it is necessary to install the Sparko plugin which adds a HTTP/JSON-RPC interface to your node. The installation and configuration process is fairly simple. Remember that the HTTP interface should be accessible either via IPv4 or as a TOR hidden service.

Core Lightning (previously c-lightning) is a lightweight, highly customizable and standard compliant implementation of the Lightning Network protocol.
