Re: [w3c/webpayments] Should the WPWG develop a cryptocurrency payment method specification (#232)

> One thing to note here is that Lightning and similar networks already natively support in-network currency exchanges, e.g., having a payment start in one currency and the recipient receiving another currency.

That's not entirely true. Lightning has intentions of being cross-currency but that is a long way off at this point and the complexity of doing cross-currency hasn't begun to be explored in detail.

Lightning is a great advance for Bitcoin and Litecoin and any chain that can implement it but cross-chain is hard (and technically impossible with Lightning if the destination/source is not Lightning compatible).
