About OmniBOLT

OmniBOLT(Basis of Lightning Technology) is the world’s first stablecoin (on Omnilayer) circulation specification for Lightning Network, and the second important protocol presented by Omni foundation. It is a big extension of BOLT, the major parts of this spec are p-2-p instant payment and mortgage loans for crypto-assets.

Polar was built to help Lightning Network application developers quickly spin up one or more networks locally on their computers. Polar is open source and 100% free.

Polar is actively tested on Mac OS Catalina, Windows 10, and Linux (Ubuntu & Arch). While other platforms are not being tested regularly, it should run wherever Electron and Docker are supported.

With Polar users can:

  • Create a regtest Lightning Network in just a few clicks
  • Connect from your app to the lightning nodes via RPC
  • Add more nodes using drag & drop
  • Start and stop individual nodes
  • Open & Close Channels
  • Create & Pay Lightning Invoices
  • Launch a terminal in each bitcoin/lightning node
  • View streaming logs from each node
  • Manually mine new blocks
  • Deposit regtest coins into each Lightning node
  • Export and import networks, for sharing with other Lightning developers
