About Lightning


LIGHTNING (LIGHT) is a decentralized venture capital system on a blockchain. Here financiers and developers can yield value by nurturing trustworthy and innovative projects by the platform. The aim of the platform itself is to provide exceptional value through blockchain development by creating a thriving ecosystem. 

LIGHTNING, being one of the first blockchain incubators and launchpad, seeks to reward users by providing exclusive access to safe and innovative projects and also for their funding across multiple blockchains. The developers aim to benefit from the platform by having exclusive partnerships with leading blockchain companies, which seeks to provide them with improved exposure, better liquidity, and a devoted community to back them up.

As per the whitepaper, the Lightning ecosystem is comprised of two main products: Lightning protocol and Lightning incubator. The Lightning protocol or $LIGHT is the token that powers the Lightning ecosystem. $LIGHT is a deflationary supply elasticity protocol having a maximum supply of a finite number of tokens. Deflationary means that the quantity of tokens has an upper limit which prevents the production of new tokens, and removing currency from the supply can increase the value of the tokens.

The Lightning incubator, built on Binance Smart Chain, has an integrated initial DEX offering (IDO) launchpad. The incubator aims to decentralize venture capital by supporting the creators of new IDOs while trying to maximize the value of financiers. The incubated projects and financiers seek to gain their profits from the ecosystem’s services and benefits. The users seek to get their income from rebases and airdrops. All the new IDOs airdrop 1% of their supply to the $LIGHT token holders. The incubated projects, on the other hand, benefit from streamlined launch processes along with funding and liquidity support. The platform also aims to provide expert insight, guidance, and services.


The platform has partnered with many big names like Certik, BSC news, Maven capital, and more.

As the platform aims to cultivate projects of great quality and innovation, a panel of judges chooses projects according to the idea quality, roadmap, tokenomics, and prior experience of teammates before approving the projects.

$LIGHT has a maximum total supply of 100,000,000 token.
