A community bank, built on Bitcoin and Lightning
Bitcoin Beach is an initiative designed to create a sustainable Bitcoin economy – utilizing the Lightning Network. The project is based in El Zonte, a town of roughly 3,000 residents on the Pacific Coast of El Salvador.
The Bitcoin Beach Wallet is the first implementation of Galoy software. It was designed as an open source Bitcoin-based community banking solution to meet the needs of the merchants and community members in El Zonte.
An Open Source Core Banking Proof of Concept
The Bitcoin Beach pilot project is the first step in our B2B strategy to support any company or community to self-organize as their own bank.
