I want to create a node on Liquid Sidechain so that I can integrate Liquid Network with my decentralized exchange.
The Liquid sidechain is a private sidechain. To get access to it, you must contact Blockstream. See https://blockstream.com/liquid/
Liquid is a private sidechain built on top of the open source Elements platform github.com/ElementsProject/elements– nicklerFeb 14, 2018 at 8:07
And what about Lightning Network? Is it a private sidechain as well?– GaganFeb 14, 2018 at 12:47
1The Lightning Network is not a sidechain. It is a completely different technology and layer on top of Bitcoin. It is not private; anyone can use LN and implement software that works with it. It is not centralized either.– Andrew Chow ♦Feb 14, 2018 at 15:59
