The goals of this research can be presented as three broad themes:
Identify the current state of development of the Lightning Network in relation to how ready it is for regular use (i.e. not only specialized testing) on the mainnet.
Visualize how a user interface should be built in order to accommodate the new functions of the Lightning Network and provide a good usability and experience.
Review usability aspects and design decisions of the current solutions of graphic user interfaces, taking into account the early stage of development they are in.
