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 – nickler Feb 14 '18 at 8:07
  • And what about Lightning Network? Is it a private sidechain as well? – Gagan Feb 14 '18 at 12:47

    The 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 '18 at 15:59
