V5

Activation of new opcodes for Lightning Network Support

Agenda ID: lnfeatures

Enable features defined in DCP-0002 and DCP-0003 necessary to support Lightning Network (LN)

The Lightning Network is the most directly useful application of smart contracts to date since it allows for off-chain transactions that optionally settle on-chain. This infrastructure has clear benefits for both scaling and privacy. Bitum is optimally positioned for this integration.

Block 205189 is the first block which contains the new opcode which was voted in via the lnfeatures vote and thus all old nodes must upgrade.
