The Bitcoin Lightning Network has been introduced to the crypto sphere as THE solution to Bitcoin’s scalability concerns. Dubbed, “layer 2”, Cointelegraph claims it has been noted for being able to enable speedier transactions. In addition, it allows any two parties to create payment channels on the specified layer.

Nonetheless, layer 2 has taken a lot of heat from traders as it failed to achieve several points on its “roadmap” to success so to speak and continues to be worked upon.

An interesting post shared by [IN] Featured, revealed that another leader has criticized the Bitcoin Lightning Network and it is none other than Erik Voorhees, CEO of ShapeShift. As per his experience, ShapeShift attempted to order 20 pizzas via the layer only to discover that the max anyone can order is 2. Here is a look at his tweet:

In response to Voorhees tweet above, Lightning Pizza claims to have found the cause of error in the transaction. In particular, they revealed that 34 pizzas were originally ordered, which has been deemed their “internal maximum”. Voorhees hit back noting that they attempted to order 20 and due to failure, ended up ordering 18 with Dominos. Humor doesn’t seem to fall short on both ends, as Lighting Pizza responded,

“the story keeps (shape)shifting.”

Evidently, the limit set by Lightning Pizza resulted in an internal issue that caused the disruption of the order. Upon realizing this problem, the latter has since updated the order limit. This is supposedly just one of many stories involving flaws in the Bitcoin Lightning Network and the negativity only seems to expand with time.
